Good morning blog friends. This is the post I thought I might get done yesterday but Say La Doo Da as usual things got busy. Working on the PaperArtsy Challenge where this week France has been sharing her techniques. I decided to work on a tissue tag which she cut up and sewed back together. Why? I don't know. I think it's all part of the art. I though it's a bit like patchwork lets give it a go.....
I decided I wanted a large tag so I cut a piece of card and coloured my tissue and stuck it down. Then overpainted and knocked the colour back with a baby wipe. Great technique. It exposed some of the underlying colour but also added some shading to the top colour. Then I used Tando Ink Splatters mask and a couple of shades of blue and tried the bump technique. I still don't quite got that but it looked OK. Not on this photo in case you are squinting to see it........
I brayered my stamps from LPCoo1 and SIDD5 with white acrylic, cut up my tag and sewed it back together. I like the stitch detail, and the sewing machine played along!! Wonders never cease. I'm not sure I would actually go to the bother of cutting it up next time but I will definitely use stitching again. It all in the spirit of live and learn.... I pinned two tickets onto my tag using staples and then added a pocket watch I had painted as per Tim for a Timmy Tag that never was. I decided I wanted a chain and since it was quite long used it as the tag tie as well.
