Happy Wednesday Everyone!
Yes, I know, this post was supposed to go up yesterday. I'm way behind on things, thanks to a stinky summertime cold that is kicking my backside. In fact, my tag isn't even complete. How's that for lack of leadership here? lol
So this month's theme was ocean/nautical and/or a blues and greens color theme. I envisioned doing something "beachy" but that's as far as I got.
I started with a plain manila tag and my Neocolor II crayons. I scribbled them on and then used a water brush to dissolve/activate them. I did discover if you overwork the color, these tags will "pill."
I then used my bubbles stencils and Color Bloom sprays to add some interest to each color section.
I wasn't worried about the plain line where the two areas meet. I had plans for it! You know how when the waves are fairly turbulent and wash up on the beach, they can leave a "foam" behind? Yeah....you see where I'm going with this. Enter glass beads!
This is as far as I got. The more I look at this, the more I think it looks like something animal-ish...like a cheetah or giraffe! I'm struggling to make this into something that fits my theme. I may have to start over when my mind isn't clouded by so much congestion and I stop coughing and sniffling!
How did you do with this month's theme? Hopefully, better than I did. I'm looking forward to seeing your project! Let the linking begin!
Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves.
