March - Vintage Sweetheart tag

Hello friends

Hope you are good...
Today I want to share with you this Shabby vintage tag...
To create the background I used distress oxides in Walnut stain and Iced spruce
I then added layers of Tim Holtz Design tape along with some crackle paste 
The photo is from the Idea-ology Photo Booth, which I distressed.
I added more layers using tags, stitching, vintage lace, flower and splashes of paint.
The tag was then mounted onto a Etcetera tag.
This was a fun tag to make and I enjoyed using the distress oxide sprays to create the muted background.
As always feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate them
Have a lovely weekend

March - Original Moments....

 Hello friends...

I hope you are good...
Sorry I've been missing for a few weeks,
I've been quite poorly but hopefully I'm now finally on the mend!

Today I wanted to share with you a very quick make, this grungy notebook....
The notebooks are from a shop here in the UK called "Flying Tiger"they stock some lovely book blanks, perfect for giving them a new unique look.
I was inspired by this old barn door that I took a photograph of while out walking....
I loved the worn paintwork and wanted to try and create something similar.
I used Ranger ink's Manila card stock as its perfect for adding lots of layers to.
I started by brayering gesso and fresco paints (Paperartsy)
I then added lots of layers of archival ink, infusions, oxides and crackle medium to 
get a cool grungy look
The Number five is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology-stencil chips, which I sewed into the cover 
The words are also from Idea-ology range...
As always feel free to leave a comment...I appreciate you passing by

Hopefully spring is on its way....look forward to sharing another make with you very soon 

Have a great day!
