This hop started on the 1st of November and is 25 days long. There are plenty of possibilities to hop, get inspired and play along during that time, so don´t miss out! Here are the sponsors of this years event:
and here is the foto step-by-step to the tag process:
I wanted to use traditional colours this year and I love how by just adding a few layers of various cardstock, the tag has an overall interesting and happy look. And still was so easy to do! This tag idea is also great, if you need to do many tags. Just get your die cutting machine out and do piles, after that you could ask your kids to help out with putting them together and you can have a nice time crafting together!
Now hop on to the next blog and STAMPlorations blog for more inspiration. If you got lost on the way, you can always return to Tracey´s blog HERE and go from there :). Remember to stick to the rules :).
Hello and happy Friday! Today I´m stopping by with another tag share. These, again are created with plenty of Dina Wakley Media product. I am so enjoying this at the moment!
These are again done using plenty of gloss sprays, but also Dina´s heavy body paints as well as her collage collective book, her washi and tissue paper. The stencils on the right tag are all by The Crafter´s Workshop and the little words are handmade by my friend Lizzy. I adore them!
This background is pressed on splots of gloss sprays. Repeatedly. After the spray was dry, I attached the tissue paper image with gel medium and colored the face with Distress Crayons by Tim Holtz. The word is by my friend Lizzy and the red circle is from Dina´s collage collective book.
For this tag I was simply dabbing residue paint thru a stencil. Both paints by Dina. Then I sprayed the gorgeous lemon gloss spray on top. Let that layer dry and added the fussy cut circles from Dina´s collage collective book. Then some washi, the handmade word and some journaling.
I really like how these tags turned out. I might keep them as they are and even frame them OR I´ll add them to a journal page later. Time will tell.
I´m hoping the next weeks will be better, weather wise, because I am on vacation. Ha! So funny, doing a vacation without going anywhere special. Well, strange times require unusual measures. So no vacay.. I didn´t have one last summer due to my first knee surgery and now the second knee and covid19. I sure hope next year will be better (fingers crossed). I so, so, so miss the sand and the sea. What about you? Any plans?
Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Today I´m again sharing another „tag“ from my play time with Dina Wakley´s gloss sprays.
For this one I´ve used all kinds of residue pieces I had left over from previous play. The background has a layer of residue paint on it, on top of that there is a layer of Lindy´s spray ink.
Then, on top of that is a piece of Dylusions Creative Journal packaging paper that I applied some night gloss spray onto. There is also some magenta (does not show in the picture, sorry) gloss spray pressed onto the paper from a stencil. That was residue that I just could not wipe away.
Beneath the Dylusions paper there is stamping made with grey StazOn (stamp by Tim Holtz – Tiny Text). And on top of that paper, there is a cluster of Collage collective paper strips and a piece of used, dry, color covered baby wipe. All attached together with a tiny attacher. Then a hand written (thanks Lizzy!) sentiment and a few buttons.
I´m loving these „tags“! Creating them is almost meditative for me and I don´t think much when making them. Just putting stuff on paper :). So much fun!
Hello and happy 1st of July!!! Can you believe it´s already July!? June sure didn´t feel like June this year – we had rain, rain, rain and some more rain. Then it was all the time chilly and grey. Very much not June-like. So here´s to hoping that July will be a bit better. I miss the sunshine and sitting outside and just breathing in the summer vibes.
The weather is not good for hanging around outside in the garden, but it´s good for being creative! So I have been doing mixed media stuff. Lot´s, actually.
These tags are inspired by one of Dina Wakley´s Facebook lives. I had so much fun first applying gloss sprays, then bits and pieces from her Collage Collective book and then some washi and paper snippets.
These actually aren´t tags, but just wripped off pages form a very small journal. But they will make great additions to art journal pages and/or cards even.
And the gloss sprays! Boy do I like using them! I love the resist effect they create and how they react on top of each other and when mixed. And pulling prints from a spray splat – that sure is so much fun!! I haven´t even tried out what else is possible with this product, but I can say, they really are a great buy. AND the colours are just gorgeous! I really love them! And I don´t get paid for saying that, by the way :-D.
If you haven´t tried them yet and you are into art journaling, mixed media an such, I think you should give at least one or two colours a try :). Just saying!
