Pout, You Drama Queen

This month's theme at Gingersnap Creations is one of my favorites....it's all about Shopping. I bet shopping is one of your favorite things too. LOL. Well, the emphasis is on using labels, tags and packaging materials in our art. I save interesting tags from clothing and such, they are such a graphic element that  I love reusing them in my art. This first week's challenge GC#105 is "From the Mall". Come visit our group and join in the fun, plus you get to see my fellow Ginger Design team members' fantastic creations.

 It was this red lipped "Pout" hangtag that started my  Design team card this week.The "Pout" tag colors of black, white and red  are another go to color combination for me. Its bold, graphic and photographs so well.  I layered the tag, the vintage tiny fashion images 1941D, from  our sponsor this month Altered Pages, on to a red lace paper background. On top of these, I added Artchix Transparencies that said "got style" and "drama queen" then added the red passion and crazy labels. The flower came next with patterned paper , tulle, a red Poker chip! and a big gem. Some 3d flowers and more gems and the drama queen was off to the mall.

Hope you have a chance to be a crazy drama queen this week. (LOL)
artfully yours, gerri
"Pout, you crazy drama queen."
