Happy Friday! Hope everyone has had a great week!.
Today I have a collaged tag to share with you. It was nice to spend a little time playing with paper and ephemera and doing a little layering and modge podging!
This tag is yet again basically me in a nut shell.. Grungy, vintage, collaged yumminess!!
I started with my #8 tag, a whole bunch of Tim Holtz paper and epherema, and of course my trusty bottle of modge podge! I started to build layers on my tag,
Some elements I fussy cut, then more layering and modge poding. Until I was happy with how my layers looked. I then added a thin layer of modge podge over my entire tag.
After letting it dry I then outlined some of the pieces with my black soot distress marker,
the smudged each line to give the elements a bit more depth and shadow.
Then a few random swipes of picket fence distress crackle paint..
While I was waiting for my distress crackle paint to dry I stamped my chosen sentiment for my tag..
and then added some remnant rubs randomly around my tag, and smudged the edges of the tag using my black soot distress marker..
I then cut out and inked the edges of each word in my phrase with distress ink. Stuck them to my tag and used my distress marker to define the edges.
And I was done.. or so I thought,
I then decided to add in another couple of elements and add in some machine stitching around the edges of the tag... This time I was done..
the tag is a little reminder to myself, to believe in where my art journey is taking me.. To do what makes my heart happy, not what I think others might like to see..
