Just when I thought I was done for posts in January, PaperArtsy dragged me back to crafting again! ;o)
I was browsing through some blogs and hopped over to PaperArtsy and saw the latest Guest Designer Ellen Vargo take us through brayer and paint tag making....I have a brayer that has never been used and I never imagined I would ever used it - In fact I was about to dismiss it as a useless purchase and bin it!
I LOVED the effect that Ellen got - and so I grabbed a tag and some paints and got into a lot of painty mess - Brilliant fun!
I started by just rolling some paints onto the tag. I used Ice Blue, Lake Wanaka, Space Cadet, and Guacamole Fresco Paint with the brayer. Then I dabbed a little bit of Hey Pesto Fresco Paint to cover some gaps and add a lovely hint of translucent colour.
I distressed the edges of the tag with some scissors and dabbed Walnut Stain DI around the edges.
Flower die cuts were covered with Honeydew Fresco Paint and when dry dabbed with some Walnut Stain DI and secured with silver metal brads.
Some twine was used for the stems and leaves.
I used brown hemp string tied at the top to make a hanger.
Hope you like it! Thanks so much for being here
