The Magic of Movies tag swap

My friend Stephanie and I have been doing art journal challenges for each other for a couple of years on and off now.
This is the second tag swap that I have participated in with her and her friends.
The theme for this tag swap was "The Magic of the Movies"
As many know I love scary, horror and Zombie movies....but figuring not everyone likes those types of movies...I went with a general movie theme.

I stamped these tickets from the Tim Holtz stamp collection on the same paper as the tag itself and then fussy cut them out.
I also stamped the word background because I thought the text looked like those old time theatre posters.
If you look closely I added some of Vicki Boutin's iridescent glaze under the black film strip.
I used a piece of the discarded black film strip as as stencil to use with the glaze.

The black film strip was punched out with a mini punch, that was put in a border gadget (like a border punch type of thing) where the paper is moved with each punch.
There is an acetate film strip, by Tim Holtz, which I stapled on top of the black film strip.

I had fun playing with my mixed mediums.
If you look at the bottom corner of the tag I used Inkagold with a stencil to look like a film reel.

In this photo below, you can see the Glaze I used with the stencil I made.
I also used washi tape.

Here are the ladies that did the swap this time.
I am the one in the burgundy Stephanie is the one holding her selfie stick :)

Only 3 of us were in this swap this time.
Me Stephanie and her mom Louann.
Mt tag is on the left, Stephanie's (The Littlest Mermaid inspired) is the center and Louann's is on the right.
They all turned out so beautiful and unique.

Oh look!!!
I did a video of my tag...not only to share more of this tag with you, but I also did a process video on how I created it.
