Eclectic Paperie: January eTeam Picks Challenge - Hope

I made this tag for the January eTeam Pick Challenge. The challenge was to make a project representing Hope for 2014. What a fun challenge! I have a stash of tags I make after I spray my art journal pages and this was one of them. I used Tim Holtz Distress Stains, Crackle Paints and Distress Glitters in Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen. To make the HOPE letters I covered Tim Holtz Alphabet Grunge Letters with Antique Linen Crackle Paint and then covered them with Glossy Accents. I colored the doily and ribbon with Victorian Velvet Distress Stain. The key is a Tim Holtz grunge piece that I covered with Victorian Velvet Distress Stain and then Distress Glitter in Antique Linen.

My good friend Rachel from RWKrafts, gave me some of those cute tiny DCWV kraft envelopes. I used the number 2 because that is the street number of my new house. I'm also hoping to find the "key" to  "bliss" in 2014. Finally, I'm hoping and dreaming of lots of "inspiration" for 2014 since 2013 was mainly spent planning and overseeing the building of my house, traveling and dealing with other "issues", it left little time or space for creativity. So, I hope I'll get some "inspiration" to help me be very creative in 2014.
