....a technique tag!!

Howdy Peeps....
I wanted to share
with you a Technique Tag that I created!!
A while back,
I had the pleasure of attending
CKC ~ Lancaster, PA
with Cheryl Mezzetti
and working the Splash of Color booth.
What a WONDERFUL experience.
I had packed up a bag of creative goodies
to bring along with me....
just in case we had some free time to create.
So, as I was unpacking,
I decided to challenge myself to create with
only the contents of the bag.
There was no "STUFF" in my
bag so I did allow myself to pick
a few other Splash of Color products....
one texture,
one color of Silks
one package of Primary Elements
and one bottle of Precious Metal Effect Paint....
 I began by coating the vintage bingo card,
cut into a tag, with Honey Amber ~ Silks Acrylic Glaze.
Love how it changed the tone of the bingo card!!
I then began playing with the 3pk of Primary Elements ~ Emperor.
I mixed (not completely)
the Olive Vine ~ Primary Elements with a bit of
Viva Colour ~ Amber Gold ~ Ferroand spread it through
a stencil.
While the Ferro was still damp,
I applied some of Plum Crazy ~ Primary Elements
with a #4 round paintbrush.
(Ferro is an adhesive while wet)
I then mixed a smidge of
Yellow Rose ~ Primary Elements
with Primary Elements ~ Clear Glaze Medium
and painted the chipboard frame.

Next, I mixed
Olive Vine ~ Primary Elements with
the Primary Elements ~ Clear Glaze Medium
to paint the diecut leaves.
Of course, I had to color a few flowers.

I began by spritzing the large flower with water,
then with a fan brush I applied
Blackeberry ~ Precious Metal Effect Paint to
the edges of the petals and sprized again with water.
I then mixed a bit of
Plum Crazy ~ Primary Elements with
a bit of Primary Elements ~ Clear Glaze Medium
and brushed it onto the flower.
Spraying at times with water to move/blend the colors.
If you look behind the flowers....
you will see a bit of vintage border paper
that I painted with the left over above mixture. 
Did you know that you could use Primary Elements is
soooo many different ways???
Hope you enjoyed my Technique tag....
I REALLY had FUN exploring the MANY different ways
Primary Elements can be used.
HOPE YOU enjoyed the journey with me!!
