Swap # 13: Ornate Tags

Hello people....

How has the last month gone by with the rains? In Mumbai, the rains Gods seem to be more than generous and my Mojo God seemed to be flowing with the weather and has been damn gloomy with loads of work to finish with no enthusiasm. But finally I have found my kick and am back with renovated  Mojo....

We have had some wonderful cards from last swap and am sure you will agree once Tee does the reveals soon....so stayed glued to this space!!

This month we are swapping "Ornate Tags. Am sure we all are aware of what tags are ....now when we add the word "ornate" all we want is layers and textures. Add as many layers as you can....

Examples of some ornate/layered tags





Lets us know if you need more examples for references......


What You Need to Do:

1. Create 3 tags of size 8 i.e (6*3 inches)

2. Add as many layers or textures you can.

3. See that the base of your tag is strong enough to hold the layers and does not bend with the weight.

4. Pack each tag separately in plastics so that they do not get entangled with each other and destroy the decors. 


The rules remain the same.....
Registrations close by 10th August. Please send in your sneak peaks by 20th August and final pics to arrive by 29th August....and your project should be mailed out by 31st August!!!!
Your partner names come to you only when you send us your final pics!!!

Also very importantly...we notice that a lot of people register and then at the end of the month we get a mail saying they would want to withdraw as they have personal commitments....we would like to say that please check in advance your schedule and plan whether you will be able to fit the swap in your schedule or not...also we give enough time for a swap....so that even if you have a sudden emergency of events you can still finish your projects!!! You need to start work after you have registered and not wait for our reminder mailers or last date to kick your imaginations!!!!!

Having said all of this...do have fun with the swap.....

Hugs

Saumya said...

yess Doc....

Nan said...

Wow Saumya. The samples are fab. I am completely intimidated! Would really appreciate some pointers as my style is very CAS.

I also have a suggestion. Is it possible to maybe have a Pinterest board where people can pin relevant images / tutorials. I mean, all of us go thru the net for inspiration. It will be great to have a collective resource to refer to.

Saumya said...

Thanks Nan...I dont know how we can try and do a collective board...but definitely a good suggestion...but we can till then have links posted in the comment section of FB where the post says "New Swap is now live!"

Nan said...

Great idea Saumya! Thanx

MEGHA said...

nice challenge . what i searched for defination of ornate is -

What Does Ornate Mean?
Answer
Ornate means richly decorated or ornamented. This could be used to describe how one has used decorations on himherself. It could also be used to describe a speech or writing that is filled with elaborate and decorative words. For example, when a politicians wants to get votes from people they give speeches that are colourful to draw the attention of the voters.

Priya my base is cereal boxes

Saumya said...

Megha...really appreciate ur efforts .. but as we knw decorated n ornamented is subjective...so we said layers as that is as per ur style n liking.....

Piyu said...

Saumya, the tags are amazing!

I really wish I could participate, but I am not too good at layers and shabby chic.

Saumya, can you please do me a favour and check my blog and see if a tag like that would be ok?

If you give the nod, I'll join in the swap :)

Thanks,
Vithya

craftvithme said...

Also,it would be great if you could list down the supplies on the tags you have created :)

Perhaps I can hoard a few, and put it up on my tags to make it more ornate :)

Saumya said...

Yess Vithya ur tag qualifies...as we have mentioned....there is no min or max no of layers....if you are on our FB page...there are some links posted there which are very CAS in outlook and still hv layers to it...all we want is add layers as much as possible as [per ur crafting style

Archana Jhawar said...
