Good evening! I am almost pleased to share with you number five of seven in the tag art mini series of blog posts.
Now, I wasn’t sure about sharing this one as I wasn’t too happy with the results however a good friend of mine said that it was good to share your warts with people. I’m not sure I got the analogy right but I kind of agreed as people sometimes put me on a pedestal but I am as error prone as anyone else.
So, back to the point. This one used acrylic paints again. I also used a sage coloured pigment inkpad, versafine Onyx Black inkpad, some free clear stamps and a white gel pen.
I started out with a light coating of acrylic paint and let it dry. I then dusted the edges with a pigment inkpad, and to be honest this is where I started to doubt my choice as it turned out quite muddy.
Undeterred I carried on and stamped out the two stamps to create the picture at the bottom of the tag. Having acceidentally smudged these I then painted over them with some acrylic paint and restamped them.
The design had lost some life so I decided to highlight the picture with a white gel pen. It kind of worked when viewed from a distance so I went with it.
To finished I added a few brown pearls and some green sating ribbon – and then threw it in the bin after I had photographed it. Lol!
Many thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed this little bit of creativity.
See you again soon for another one.
