Hello. Welcome. It's been a busy old week. Spring has arrived, at least for a few days, and much time has been spent outdoors. A month ago Darcy was showing some amazing techniques with the Art Journal and I have been dabbling now and again. Suddenly the deadline is looming and it's a lovely sunny day!!! As luck would have it the farmers decided to spread cow muck today and despite the sun I have stayed in because the smell is horrendous. My man was out for a while and came in smelling awful. It just clings to you. So, I have had a go at finishing my AJ page.
Here's my page and faux tags. Really pleased how they turned out. I used a prima mask in the background with chocolate pigment ink and stamps from EDY06. I hav followed quite closely with Darcy's method. Loved using the ruler to make the tag on the right look like ledger paper. The tag holes look better in the picture than in the real I think but I am pleased with the drop shadow which I created using promarkers. The tag on the right is coloured using promarkers. I went round the edge with a thin black marker and then added some inky smudgy fingerprints to the corners and the edge to make it look like I had inked the edge. The sentiment is from USFD1 stamped onto an area I masked and made white with my paint marker. Added some shadows round with promarkers.
This is the real tag I made. I was dissapointed my crackle didn't crackle but once I used the prima stencil I used for the background with some cream acrylic I thought it looked a bit old wood so happy in the end. I stamped the tree from EDY06 on tissue and added itand also the sentiment from the same set.
Had to make one of those darling butterflies. Used Prima Fairy Belle flowers and they came this colour which was great.
