Hi peeps
thank you for stopping by for part 2 of “MAKIN’ TAGS”.
If you missed part one
it can be seen here.
As mentioned in my previous post,
I created tags using Core’dinations ~ Heavyweight 110lb ~ White Cardstock.
…..wicked nice paper!
Today you by Lynne Forsythe
I used TCW487s ~ Alhambra Stencil
and a bit of Wendy Vecchi ~ crackled texture paste.
….love this stuff too!
Today you by Lynne Forsythe
When the embossing paste had dried,
I gave the tag a good spritz of Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist.
Isn’t it awesome how it just seeped into the
crackled embossing paste!!!

Here is my finished tag….
a bit of gauze,
a piece of chippie
a Die~Namites Dies ~ Large Ivy and
some Petaloo Darjeeling and Penny Lane flowers
and a few words of inspiration!
Now are you ready for my last tag??
You Lynne Forsythe
Have you seen the Fragments by The Crafter’s Workshop??
This is the first time I have ever used one….
I especially LOVE……
TCW2050 Crosshatched Frags!
Today you by Lynne Forsythe
I loaded up my palette knife with Glass Beads
and randomly smeared it through the Crosshatched Fragment.
Then, I liberally spritzed the tag with Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist,
when it had dried.
Today you by Lynne Forsythe
I randomly stamped on the tag
with a stamp from Viva LasVegaStamps ~ Pound ‘o Rubber.
Finished it off with a chippie
and some Petaloo Darjeeling and Botanica flowers.
I hope you have enjoyed my tags….

Makin' Tags......

Did you know The Crafter's Workshop has a NEW RELEASE of stencils??
I’m having a BLAST playing with them!
I’m also having a blast playing with some NEW TEXTURES
with my NEW STENCILS!!
Today, I am going to share with you
2 of the 4 tags I recently created!
I cut my tags from Core’dinations Heavyweight 110lb White Cardstock.
This paper is AMAZING….
it’ll take all the liquid you can give it and pretty much
retain it’s shape!!
For my first tag I used
TCW494s ~ Trapezoid Flower.
I applied both Wendy Vecchi ~ Metallic Gold Embossing and Crackled Texture Pastes
through the stencil.
When dry, I then spritzed the tag with Tattered Angels ~ Kraft Glimmer Mist
and painted on a bit of Tattered Angels ~ Blue Bubbles Glimmer Mist
over the Wendy Vecchi ~ Crackled texture paste.
I then ran a bit of Wendy Vecchi/Ranger ~ Watering Can Archival Ink over the entire tag face. Lynne Forsythe
When dry, I then embellished the tag with Petaloo ~ Textured Elements flowers
and Tattered Angels ~ Mistable Papers
diecut using Die~Namites Dies ~ Large Ivy. Lynne Forsythe
For my second tag….
I used TCW486s ~ Labyrinth Stencil
and a bit of Wendy Vecchi ~ Translucent Embossing Paste.
I then created a tie-dye effect by spritzing
various Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mists and letting them run together.
Once again…..
I embellished the tag with
Petaloo Botanica Collection flowers, burlap and a bit of jute
I hope you have enjoyed my tags….
’cause I sure had fun making them!!
Make sure to stop back later for my other 2 tags.

I hope you enjoyed my tags.....
I am entering them into the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!!

Chase the DREAM!

I really had a FUN TIME creating this project....
I had no idea what I was doing....
.....or where it would take me!

This is how I created the background paper.
I began with a piece of white cardstock.
Then, I laid down a layer of Ranger's ~ Multi Medium
all over the cardstock with a fan brush.
I placed Petaloo ~ Embossed Daisies ~ Tangerine and Tulip Yellow
randomly all over the cardstock and dried it.
Next, using a fan brush,
 I brushed on a layer of Ranger ~ Dina Wakely ~ White Gesso
not completely covering the flowers.
When dry, I applied
Wendy Vecchi's ~ embossing paste ~ translucent
I dried the paper throughly.
Then I spritzed the paper with
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist ~ Aquamarine.
Dried the paper again and spritzed the paper with
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist ~ Candlelight.
When dry, I used TCW ~ Kasia's Letter Template again,
 this time applying the White Gesso
with a Stencil Brush.
Creating this....

I cut the paper to size to cover my
"Chunky ATC"

I then embellished the top and front of 
my "Chunky ATC".

I had left over "created" paper and pieces parts so, I made this card.

I just love Tattered Angels ~ Mistable Papers ~ Linen
colored with 
cut with Die~Namites Dies ~ Large Ivy die.

Hope you enjoyed my creative journey!!!
