Mixed media tag

Welcome everyone.
 My turn again for the Memory Maze design team project.
I have created a tag for this month it measures 3 1/8 x 6 3/8 inches.


I am trying very hard to use up my scraps I have used the
 Kaisercraft Coastal Escape collection.
I cut the bottom paper at 6x3 inches then another piece at 5 3/4 x 2 inches.
Glue these to the front of the tag, oh firstly go around the edges with 
an edge distresser. I also added a shell tag under the top paper.
I used a mask from Memory Maze and some light texture paste
and applied this to the top of my tag.
I then went and pulled out the circle piece with the mermaid on it and the shells,
 starfish and the seaweed.
I covered all these with some white paint, anything will do I just added it
so the colour will stand out more.
I used some Tim Holtz distress crayons, on the mermaid I added some
black marks to make scales and hair.
I also added some of the colours around and splashed them onto the tag.
In the collectables was a large shell so I cut down the centre a few times
 to make this fan out a bit.
I cut 3 pieces of the web ribbon at 2 inches then cut down these as well.
Pleated them uo and glued them to the bottom of the shell.
Glue this onto the bottom of the tag then add the shells, 
mermaid piece the saying and the twine.
