With all the wonderful browns appearing in the garden I was inspired to return to a vintage brown palette for this size 10 tag.
I began with a scraped layer of gesso, heat dried and then some crackle paste through Tim’s Trellis mask. I left it wet ……
…. and then splattered distress paints and spritzed them so I could tilt the tag and let the colours run through the stencil patterns and over the tag.
It created some wonderful texture and colour mixes.
I altered and distressed bits like some ordinary gold paperclips which were painted with walnut stain distress paint and I added the word ‘found’ to a tag label and attached to a piece of the film strip which was placed over the smallest lad.
The silver nib was painted with pumice stone distress paint and some treasure copper brushed over it.
This plastic no: 3 was given Tim’s layered distress paint treatment.
So after all the brighter colour projects I have been doing over the summer I am in a happy place being back with my vintage colours and collage layers. Don’t you just love Tim’s Found Relatives photos? Do you like my link here? I couldn’t find the word relative in the chit chat stickers but I knew I had this one in my own printed chatty words.
The very rusty looking latticework gives a great background, I’m really pleased with that effect.
Have a great week.
