Happy Tuesday Everyone!
It's that time of the month when we link up the altered tags we've made with this month's theme. For the month of March, we're using the Pantone color "Green Flash" as well as adding a favorite quote or word to your tag.
First of all, two disclaimers from me: 1) As usual, I forgot to take still shots of my process while I was filming my video, and 2) I totally screwed up my quote on this tag. The actual quote is "The Earth laughs in flowers." For some reason, the word bloom popped in my head and that's what I used instead.
Here's my process video. I hope you'll take a look.
I started this tag by collaging some papers onto it. I then added some Dylusions ink sprays, Color Bloom sprays, and some white acrylic paint applied through my favorite bubbles stencil. I tried to do some ghost stenciling with the Flower Medley stencil, but the background was just too busy for it to show up.
I took some white paper flowers and colored them with sprays as well. After cutting off the wire stems, I curled those with my paper bead making tool. I love doing that. It adds a fun extra touch to go along with the flowers.
I used my Derwent Inktense Pencils to add shading around the outside edge of the tag, the quote panel, and a few of the paint dots. I also added Liquitex Glass Bead Gel to the flowers, tendrils, and a couple of edges. I love that silly stuff!
After I finished filming and the tag was dry, I decided to add a bit of gold and cream baker's twine around the lower portion of the tag. I also backed it with some green card stock to emphasize the "Green Flash" color we're using this month.
Now it's your turn to link up your tag! And please be sure to visit the other participating artists and leave them some love as well!
Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves.
