I knew right away what I wanted to do on this tag when I looked through my Typography (Graphic 45) 8x8 paper pad. One of the pages is full of several different images and sentiments.
I picked this one because I just loved what it said...Keep your face to the sunshine! Isn't that a great quote to live by??? So I cut it out, distressed and inked the edges, and then made it the focal point of my tag.
I took a piece of a cardboard box, tore it, gessoed it, and then colored it with some Faber-Castell Gelato crayons. I love Gelatos, because of their colors and all the different techniques you can use with them.
I used embossing paste and stenciled the background of the tag. I used the Graduated Diamonds (MFT) and the Fleur de Lis (MFT) stencils. After the paste dried, I colored the raised areas with the gelato crayons mixed with water! Pretty cool, huh?
I added some gears, flowers, die cut leaves, lace and ribbon to complete the look.
I hope you will join us with our new Anything Goes Challenge starting tomorrow!!
