Stampotique have merged their Designers Blog along with the Challenge Blog this time it is the lovely Claudine Criner who is the host, this is what she has to say:
Claudine Criner Most of us always create a New Year's Resolution and the beginning of the New Year. For 2015 try your hand at making something with your New Year's Resolution in mind.
I have never made NYR as i feel that i am setting myself up to fail so i have taken inspiration from the Scrapbooking and Journalling world where a Word of the Year is chosen,
is my word of 2015.
This word can be interpreted in so many ways which for me means that it will be a positive way forward, no failing.
Recycled a page from my 2014 documented Life Project book that Dyan Reaveley showed me how to make my page more durable. She glued two pages together and added some paint onto the page using a baby wipe, sorry not too sure what she used!
DecoArt Crackle Paste is fantastic and it dries quite quickly, used an Artist Cellar stencil from Willowing for the stars and hearts.
When they were dry went over them a few different Distress inks but they didn't look as i wanted them to so went over the top with Pan Pastels Rich Gold and Copper.
The Stabilo All black pencil gives a little depth and shadow round the edges.
The Paper Artsy stamp Breathe The Love is one of my favourite stamp sets, it is from set Love and Kisses 1. This was one of the first PA stamp set i ever bought. Moon Girl and Hare are both by Daniel Torrente by Stampotique.
Both Moon girl and Breathe The Love are stamped onto tissue paper with a white font and adhered onto the tag with pva glue. Hare is just stamped onto the Tag.
Brayered over the top using Snowflake Fresco as i wanted Moon girl to look a little ethereal.
Added a Signo white pen border around the sentiment and on some of the stars, then finished the Tag off with a black bow.
My NYR or Word is to Breathe…
Hope you enjoyed your visit today, thanks for dropping by and i look forward to your lovely comments.
