I've been really enjoying my time off from work this week. We've had some beautiful weather so, needless to say, I have spent as much time as possible outside - love that!
Have you seen Virginia's newest challenge? She'd like us to create tags or scrapling and she also wants us to add a recycled or household item.
I decided to make a tag and I knew I wanted to have flowers on it but I had to figure out which item or product I would use to create those flowers. I decided to use tin foil - don't ask me why because I don't know!
After crinkling up the pieces of tin foil and pressing
them flat again, I covered them with a layer of Gesso. When that was
dry, I added some Distress Paint and blended them with water.
paint dried, I proceeded to cut out the flowers with my Cuttlebug. The die is from Simon Says Stamp's Whimsical Flowers set.
The die-cut flowers were very flimsy, so I layered each one on top of some cardstock scraps, which I had also cut out with the same die. Then I adhered them onto my tag, added some sequins and a bit of Crinkle Ribbon. I dyed the ribbon with the same distress Inks and water to match the colors of my flowers.
The texture is really cool looking! Here's a close-up:
I want to thank Virginia for always being so creative and inspiring!
Hope you're all having a good week! Thanks for stopping by! ♥
