Microglaze resist tag 1

Capture Beautiful Dreams


This is one of the follow up tags from the tutorial I did using the distress microglaze as a resist - if you missed the tutorial you can find it HERE.
You may remember the tag began this life as a mop up from my spare box of bits ...


... and had the microglaze treatment through a stencil.


 It looked like this before I blended more distress inks over it.


To make up the tag I collected elements I wanted to put together, but as always they changed and got added to as you will see in the finished photo.


I also stenciled through the latticework stencil with iced spruce and tea dye before using a small splatter stamp with picket fence distress paint. It was then ready to make up the design.


I changed the mini tag and added the numbers and a star, these helped complete the balance and interest of the final layout.


The sentiment was made up using chit chat stickers and I added a stamped pen nib too.


I love this picture from the photo booth collection. just a ticket a mini paperclip again add more interest, texture and depth.


With the film strip and numbers and a piece from a framework die the composition and design was complete.


There's tag 2 coming up in a couple of days so keep your eyes peeled to see how I used another of the tag collection from the tutorial.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
