In the desk photo we have….this week’s Tag, 3 ATCs made with some of the masterboard tissue I made a couple of weeks ago, some goodies on the left from a trip to Camden Town with Lewis on Monday (I still don’t like London much and definitely not the underground!) – we went in a little tardis craft shop….visit Slanchogled.com, they have some lovely ‘bits and pieces’……. some flowers from the latest PA releases coloured with polychromos and ready to do ‘something’ with, and last but definitely not lease Shrek Girl Tag from Helen!!! 🙂 Thank you so much….she came this morning and made me smile, love her!!
Especially for ‘Lunch Lady’ Jan…here’s the (not very good) bag photo that I forgot last week!!
My offering for this week is the results of another playtime with frescos and Infusions! This is using one of the large size 10 tags as a base and brayered frescos to start.
I then added highlights of Teresa Green and Blue Oyster. Next was a play with grunge paste……a little bit mixed with Pansy put through a TCW stencil
I also did some plain GP through a circle stencil but forgot to take a photo as I was getting into the swing of things by then!!
I knocked it all back a bit with Chalk fresco on the beautiful PA script stamp in several places.
So the final bits were some of the new Kay Carley flowers from EKC01 and EKC02 stamped with Lilac fresco, Watering Can archival ink and then several of the grasses stamped on the bottom of the stems with shades of green.
I had another play with Blackcurrant Infusions and metallic glaze – this time I added a little bit more to see what depth of colour I could get and they turned out a beautiful purple!! I used this trial and stamped more Kay Carley flowers and layered them up and also a flower from JM34 minis. Adding few touches of Amethyst and white fire treasure gold on the edges and the grunge paste for the finishing touches. Ooops…totally forgot…the butterfly is white Clearly for Art, heat shaped, (fingers burnt) and glued on
I cut the bottom off the tag and put some eyelets through and then tied them together with some thin gold braid. The bottom has a quote from ELB05 stamp set and one of the bugs from JM45 and leaves from JM12 on metallic glaze and A Bit Jaded Infusion. Last touch was some turquoise seam binding through the top with some more of the braid.
As usual for a Wednesday, you can visit Queen Julia’s place to find out about WOYWW if you don’t already know and find links to other WOYWWers’ blogs.
