I got up early to have another go, this time trying things that I remembered in the night.
I covered tags with cotton fabric and painted them with fresco Vanilla. I also restricted myself to 1 stencil, 1 sentiment, a few neutral fresco paints, distress and archival ink and a few embellishments. No kitchen sink this morning!
I stencilled my flowers with Irish Cream fresco and stamped the sentiment randomly with Brushed Corduroy distress. Then I gave it a thin wash of Vanilla fresco to knock it back a bit.
I continued to work with the stencil using both distress and archival ink, trying to build up layers.
I can see you learning all the time just as you say - it's so exciting! I love what you did on these tags. I know you preferred the neutral, but I did like the orange too: I love the warm glow it has. They are both gorgeous. Julie Ann xxReplyDelete
Well I think they're both really beautiful Hazel and I like the slight pop of the orange tissue while it still keeps within the colour 'shades' rather than a contrast. Love the neutrals and the composition of both tags is lovely.ReplyDelete
Well Hazel, I agree with both Lesley and Julie Ann, they are both beautiful. I love the neutral colours, it's something that I quite often struggle with myself. It is a learning curve and playing around, experimenting like this is the best way to learn.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous Tags Hazel, both are rocking the neutral look i especially love the orange sentiment, great colour pop.ReplyDelete
You continue learning every day, it is a pleasure to see your curve getting more curvy by the hour. Thanks for sharing your Journey :-) xxx
Really like both tags Hazel. Loving the colours what is the linen not seen before the other day? The journey in art is the art and we are all on a journey together and it is so much fun. XxxReplyDelete
Fab tags! Great layering, I really must be more patient then I can have a go at this technique.ReplyDelete
Oooh love both your tags, I actually like the one with the orange tissue paper the best, gives good contrast and works well with your choice of colour ink.ReplyDelete
These are both beautiful Hazel! Lovely layers!ReplyDelete
Ooo both are lovely, keep going and make a whole set, these would be fab for presents with brown papers xReplyDelete
