These are the three challenges i am entering today.
I am loving the Guest Designers over on the Paper Artsy Blog, this week it is again the turn of Clare Lloyd. Her first challenge is to make a funky art journal style tag. I followed Clare’s instructions and this is what i came up with.
Forgot to take pictures of how i added the base colours to the tag. Used Pan Pastel red shades but didn’t like the colour so added a layer of Nougat Fresco Paint, added a thick layer on one of the tags and pressed the other into it and then pulled it off to get a lighter coating.
Stamped the images on the Tag using Darcy Wilkinson’s cog border, JOFY stamps. The Rhonda Palazzari stencil is a favourite of mine, used Pea coat Fresco Paint to go through the stencil. On a separate piece of card painted Bora Bora Fresco Paint then stamped the wonderful smiling happy faces from the JOFY plate 09. Cut them out with a border and coloured in with Sakura Glaze Pens and a white fine tip Posca Pen.
Used Distress inks Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves and Black Archival for all the stamping and edging of the Tag. Coloured the happy face stamps using Fresco Paints Autumn fire and Claret.
Added a layer of Fresco Metallic Glaze over the Tag as i like a little sparkle.
One of the things i am not good at is sewing, 2014 is the year i am going to remedy that. I was very pleased when i saw that Clare had added stitching to her funky journal Tag.
Used navy and green rayon thread to sew around the flowers and on the stems of the JOFY flowers.
Added two different sentiments to the Tag both from JOFY plates using Seedless Preserves DI and Archival Black inks.
Hope you like my funky journal tag, looking forward to your comments.
