During the holidays I sometimes get a little down. Family logistics, Poppa not being here, as time goes on, time does make big changes. I know that there is one thing that can lift my spirit, Color. Having color around me brightens my day and my thoughts. So here we go!
I love making tags. I can tie them together, give them as gifts, and just look at them. I love getting lost in the making of them as well.
I started with a tag painted with white and blue acrylic paint.
I then took one of Mixed Media Supplies Crackle background rubber stamp and stamped silver ink all over it.
I layered another stamp Dark Distress over the first inking. I used a pink ink.
I used Punchinello with homemade molding paste mixed with Metallic Mica Powder
I then used a chalk to tint the edges and some interior areas of my tags.
I love the digital art sheets that are available from Mixed Media Supply. You can find many digital downloadable images here.
On this tag I also layered over with some wonderful gold paste that I had on hand. I feel that these tags helped my lift my spirits. If the holidays are a little rough for you, sometimes a little time spent relaxing can make all the difference.
