For The Birds

Good Monday morning everyone!  Hope you July is going great.  I wanted to share with you a tag I created for the current event going on over on the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity.  I've stepped out the process so you can see how it was created.


Start by stamping Bubbles onto a tag with black ink.  Sprinkle Nuance powders in different colors across the tag then mist to activate.  When that dried, I used yellow and orange markers to color in some of the bubbles.  I then dry brushed gesso over the tag to somewhat mute the very bright colors.

Stamp Mini Whimsical Birds 1 & 2 onto some mixed media paper and color with a selection of LSG sprays.  Cut out.  Next cut out some bricks (I used Sizzix's Mixed Media 3 set) and paint with Paper Artsy Cherry Red then emboss with DI Fired Brick EP.  Using a baby wipe, brush a little black paint across the bricks.

Water down some red and black paint and flick across the background.  Do the same with some gesso.  When that is dry, glue down the brick and add shadows with the gray Nuance powder mixed with a little water.  Cut out and paint some alphas and numerals and add to the background.  Add your bricks to the tag then position your birds over the bricks.  Finally, roll a piece of red ribbon in some gray Nuance powder mixed with water and tie off to the top of the tag.

Easy peasy!

Until later.............................
