'Children' at Try It On Tuesday

Hi everyone! It's time for our new challenge at Try It On Tuesday, which you will already have seen from my post title is 'Children'
The Design Team have made some wonderful inspiration to get you started, so please, do go and have a look!

I love making tags (my next favourite after my art journals)
I started by painting my tag with some PA fresco paint - then added some 3D transparent gloss gel through Tim's Doily stencil
Once this was dry I rubbed some Distress Crayons over the tag in rather a random manner before rubbing with a dampened finger.
I had some gelli printed paper leftover from a play session
I ripped a piece off and stamped some text on it as well as inking the edges.
This was then cut to fit the tag and I added some green gauze that also had the ink treatment
The photo is one I had picked out a while ago from the TH Lost relatives pack.

The little girl has her hair in a style that I had as a child - I love the way she has been distracted from the camera - probably by someone telling her to smile!
Does anyone else remember going to a studio in the 50's to have a series of photos taken that were presented in a sheet of square photos so that one could be chosen to enlarge?
The little girl is doing just as she is told - just smiling at someone she knows!
I used some Bora Bora Fresco paint over both a metal corner and a flower.  I rubbed it off while wet so that the paint stuck in the grooves.
The flower was added to an old Prima flower and has a gemstone centre.
 I used one of my sale bargain TH die words (I just dabbed it lightly with a touch of Hickory smoke DI to make it blend in more)and added some lace and a button to finish this off.

I hope you will join us this time with your interpretation of  'Children' - it can be any kind of project you wish as long as you keep to the theme! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

A beautiful tag Chris, she does look a happy child. I remember the photo studio's, but you had to be very good, no big smiles and look at the camera. How times change.
