Hello and a great big warm welcome to each of you 
here I am today sharing my March project for 
Dusty Attic blog 
This month I am showcasing two tags I created recently
one Feminine and one Masculine 

Feminine Tag

DUSTY ATTIC materials used .
Laurel sprigs/ DA1469
Federation frame set /DA1502
Dusty in color clear gloss varnish /DA0901

Dusty in color Alabaster /DA0902

Now for my second tag 
RICH and EARTHY Masculine Tag
with a cycling theme .

Masculine Tag
Jumbo Cogs /DA 0232
Number Panel Large  /DA1050
Geometric Corners /DA1030
Dusty in Color SunBurnt Orange/DA0906
Dusty In Color Hot Chocolate  /DA0923
Dusty in Color clear gloss varnish /DA0901

I made this BirthdayTag for our son-in-law 
Jair is a cyclist and I wanted to create a tag with a cycling feel to it .
his bike is a red and black Macini 
He rode in the January tour down under .
The geometric corners,  the black paper and arrows mimic the roads
The cogs are on the bike 
the string represents the shoelaces 
Jair celebrated his 42nd Birthday . 

To achieve this deep rich orange I used two colors 
I mixed Sunburnt Orange with a tiny amount of Hot Chocolate . 
Finished with clear gloss
Dusty in Color clear gloss varnish /DA0901
Dusty in color SunBurnt Orange/DA0906
Dusty In Color Hot Chocolate  /DA092

thanks so much for popping by 
and I do hope you are inspired to have a play with these beautiful 
chippies .
big hugz until we meet again
love Heather J.


  1. Wow, they are amazing! Your layering is simply stunning.

  2. Both are so different and so gorgeous! I love the soft, feminine feel of your first tag and your treatment of the masculine tag is incredible - it almost looks like leather! Beautiful.

  3. Beautiful tags Heather and beautifully photographed. Your trade mark layering and colour blending is superb and each piece has a flair of it's own. Love to visit your blog and be inspired by your superb Art :D

  4. Soooooooooo gorgeous! LOVING the colors and the layers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. WOWser Heath these tags are just breathtaking and like Helen said so beautifully photographed. I just love the one you made for Jair. Perfect masculine tag and the colours are so rick and pretty. The first one is so soft and feminine. Lucky recipients. So much work and attention to detail goes into your creations, I know I have one :D <3

  6. Both projects are stunning! (as always) and fabulous to see your lovely layered styles both in the feminine and more masculine side by side. Just wonderful.

  7. Dues targetes precioses. M'encanten! És molt difícil fer quelcom masculí i que cada detall signifiqui una cosa.
