Somehow tags have become a focus for me lately so today's post is mostly tag art. I'm going to start with this tag meant for the Simon Says Monday Challenge theme of "All Loved Up":
It's been difficult getting good photos as the sun has not been around (but for a fleeting moment or two) for days now.
Products: Tim Holtz Botanical tissue paper; gesso; pink acrylic paints; Golden Shading Grey High Flow paint; Tim Holtz Small Talk Occasions Stickers; foam heart sticker (AC Moore-sadly closing their doors); threads, ribbons, lace, vintage buttons from my stash.
For Tag Tuesday with the theme of Black,White, Red:
This is actually a tag card so I can write a note inside:)
For T Stands For Tuesday I have this yummy small plate to share from - again- our last visit to Cape May. Speaking of, we made our first reservations to go back in the Spring - one of several trips we hope to make again this year:):)
Another visit to Hemingways where we stopped for happy hour appetizers and a drink. Hummus with veggies and pita are a fave of mine, along with a nice glass of J Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon. Cheers!
Back to tags.
I used the above supplies along with some Dylusions Spray Inks on manila tags for a technique I was introduced to thru IG:
The technique is to coat your surface of choice with black acrylic paint ( I also tried a deep brown- on the brick stencil one). Let dry. Spritz with Dylusions spray inks. Let dry. Dab white acrylic paint thru a stencil over top. That's it! As the white paint dries the Dylusions inks will somewhat seep through the white bringing back some color. Pretty cool! You do need to use water soluble sprays- NOT permanent color sprays.
And lastly I will share this journal page for Art Journal Journey (theme is "something new") and Try It On Tuesday (white space or colourful grunge):
New are the two bottles of pink acrylic paint in Dragon Fruit (Americana), and Neon Pink (Craft Smart). This is in my Dina Wakley Media Journal. I also used her collage tissue words, Collage Collective image, stencil and Lapis and Penny paints.
Joining Paint Party Friday also. Looking forward to visiting and seeing what you've been up to. Have a super week!
