Hope you you are all good!
Spring is finally here....thank goodness!
winter hung around...way too long!
It seems like ages since I used a tag in my work...
I had forgotten how much I love working on them,
its a great way to experiment with different mediums,
products and techniques....it's how I first got bitten by the ink bug!
So I started by creating lots of layers using gesso and distress paints
I lost count how many layers.......but it was many!
When I was happy with background I added a layer of the new Ranger Opaque crackle paste using a palette knife...
This product is so VERY cool! I think I will be using pots of it!
(I got mine from Art from the heart here)
When the paste had dried I added more layers using distress crayons, paints, stencils and stamps
(Tim Holtz -Birch and pine set and Correspondence)
The heart is a Sizzix thinlit, which also got the grunge treatment using the paste...
I added the words from Idea-ology "Clippings" and framed them with some rusty wire
To finish I added lots of stitching and some painty splats!
It was great to experiment with a new product, it helps revive the old mojo when its feeling a bit flat!
As always feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate you passing by!
Have a great week!
Bye for now
