My 6th milk carton for Linda's ever inspirational
12 Tags of Christmas Challenge
Here is her outstanding tag...
I love absolutely everything about this tag, but the challenge is to draw inspiration from certain items and then create your own (whatever you want to make) project, based on what you chose from her tag.
I focused on the angel and the doily and the tag shape.
My favorite Christmas movie is
It's a Wonderful Life,
and decided to incorporate the angel from the movie into my milk carton.
Clarence, The Wingless Angel and George
I copied pictures from film clips of the movie and used the photo editing application, Paint,
to place them into this clipart picture of a 1940's television set.
Then cut out wings from a Tattoo website and placed them on either side of the TV and
lastly adding a bell between the wings with 3 little tags.
Since the movie is a black and white production, my intention was to stay with that same theme for embellishments. I included a black scalloped square and a white doily square beneath the TV.
The black scallop has 3 diamond gems; representing the need for us to shine, even in the darkest of times and the white doily has a letter on each side. All four sides spell out W-I-N-G.
The Famous Movie Quote
3 Little Tags
Even though Clarence, the wingless angel, shows George what the world would be like if he was never born, I used the tags to represent the "past, present and future" events that Clarence reveals to George Bailey and how he alone had, does and will touch people's lives in a positive way.
I used Stampin' Up! paper to make the carton
Scrap cardstock for the embellishments
Glossy Accents applied to the TV screen for a glassy shimmer
