Find Your Happy Place

Good afternoon and happy Friday. It's Sue here with a few more details and pictures of how I made my happy tag.


I started by painted a large wooden tag with Deco Art Media acrylics in red and yellow.

Then added some greens and purples. I'm really liking how it looks now.

Well we can't have that! time to cover it all up. I put some vaseline in random patches, then painted with white acrylic and stamped all over with the script stamp from Leonardo's Accessory Set.

When this was dry I rubbed the tag with a damp cloth to remove the patches of vaseline and anything that went over the top. This is my favourite part 'cos it's always so unpredictable.

Then I went over again with a coat of transparent yellow oxide to age it a little more.
Time for some more stamping now.
I've used Rustic CheckerboardLeonardo's AccessoriesDoodle Dolls 1Fish and Hearts Set, and CV Happy Place

There's still loads of time for you to join in, and what could be easier than 'anything goes'. I hope to see you over on the Portal.

Have a fun weekend, and thanks very much for looking x
