Hiya Crafty froends,
As promised, here are the tags that I have made to go with my ‘Turn The Page‘ project
Supplies used (available from Shernocky Crafts):
- PaperArtsy Stamps – HPXTO1,
- PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paint – Baltic Blue,
- Distress Ink – Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Fired Brick, Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet
There are some great background stamps in this set. I particularly like this map and also the postage mark stamps, which stamp beautifully.
I added the blue elements by watering down the Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic Paint (this is such a versatile paint) and brushing onto the areas I wanted to highlight.
I used the fab cog and oriental text stamps on this tag. I after distressing I used the watered down paint wash all over to give a weathered look.
Another great stamp in the clock face. I used pretty much the same technique on this tag as the one above, but instead of washing the whole tag I just just highlighted some of the lighter faces
Again, the same technicque was used on these last two tags, but this time at the end of the process I spritz the tag, quite heavily, to give a real bleaching effect.
All these tags now live in each of the pages of the book.
My mum now owns this book and is adding photographs to each of the tags…love that idea!!
