Here is my take, this is my favorite tag from my weekend crafting. (funny story i told a fellow i work with that i spent the weekend crafting and he asked if that was a sport or something lol)
mechanicals, slide cartridge, a ragged edge from my etsy store. I cut up the slide and the ragged edge frame. I always cut things up there is no reason to use exactly how they came out of the packaging. Once everything was glued on and dried i paint the entire tag with gesso except the encyclopedia print.
The black shadowing on the harlequin pattern and around chipboard and texture is from acrylic paint dry brushed on to just hit the high points. Here i debated calling it done but no more more more.
Next are a few of my favorite spots on the tag.
Going to explore more with TEXTURE.
