Another tag - not quite finished

This is my second pocket tag. It isn't quite finished. I have to add something to the upper right hand corner. I haven't decided what quite yet. The pocket is made from paper I painted and added string to with thick gel medium and pewter Lumiere. I put a little chain with a cross on it in the pocket. For my mother in law. I stenciled the heart and the flower on the tag with Broken China distress ink. Those brads are glittery! Very cool. I saw in the new TAC catalog that they now carry those brads. I got mine on sale at Michaels.

Here is a second piece of tar gel "film" that I made. I used Marigold Morning ink to color the gel and red oxide acrylic paint to swirl it. I will cut it up and use it somehow. I'm tempted to put it through my Big Shot to see if I can die cut it, but I'm so afraid I'll break my Big Shot. But wouldn't that make a gorgeous tag?!? It's so pretty. I love how that stuff turns out. Kind of makes me wish I'd learned how to make this stuff a long time ago.

In addition to this stuff, I've made some clay pendants. I'm waiting for them to dry. I'm not sure what I'm going to do to them. I made nine, and I assume I'll be stamping on a couple of them. I can't stand the drying time for stuff. Why can't I just blink my eyes and it all be ready to move to the next step?
