It's time for another Gingersnap Creations Design Team creation. We're continuing the June month's Shopping theme with a focus on Using Labels and Packaging in our Art. This week it's GC107 Random Redhead Challenge: Bags and Tags.
For the "bags" part, I melted a plastic shopping bag using my iron and a paper bag. Here's where I learned about this technique:

Here's the addy in case the link quits working:
I used USArtquest Perfect Pigment Pure Liquid Acrylic in: Cobalt Turquoise Blue with a little Burnt Umber. I added a bit of Adirondack Metallic Gold paint dabber.
For the "tags" part, I resized one of the alphabet tags from Altered Pages and added the words The Little Black Dress. I distressed the edges of the tag with Ranger Distress Ink in Antique Linen. I also used one of the images from the 1941 Fashion page provided by Altered Pages.
A big thank you to Jean Moore from Altered Pages for being this month's sponsor. There are prizes to be won so be sure to enter your art by July 17. You may be the next Home Page Artist or one of ten Ginger Gems.
