I decided to make some tags to go with the circle journal for each of the participants to have as a keepsake.
I started with distress stain in Fossilised Amber and Pumpkin Pie. Then I added some Candied Apple.
Next I added more of the Fossilised amber to coat the tags.
Next I added the stencilling using the lovely circles stencil and the Candied Apple ink.
I added the circles from the Kim Dellow stamp set in the Fossilised amber ink.
Now to start getting the colours to pop… Black gesso through a stencil… and on the stamped sentiment from the Darcy stamps.
I also added some more stamping with the text heart from Darcy’s stamps. And this is how all 13 of the tags I made stayed whilst I tried to decide how to finish it off.
I used the same colours and also added some Abandoned Coral distress stain too. Oh and I edged the tag front and back with the black gesso to frame the art.
It doesn’t make a massive difference to the image in terms of the colour underneath showing through… but love the dimension it gives them and lifts then off the background a bit.
It took me ages to come up with this idea …. I cut a stencil from some scrap, mixed the glass bead gel with some Brusho for colour and then applied it thickly through the heart stencil. They were then left to dry overnight.
It’s quite subtle in some ways but not in others and defintely is a different type of embellishment!
So happy with these and hope the recipient’s like them too! I also sent one to my friend Darcy who added the last page in my last journal as a thank you.
