Tag Trio


Over at Artful Times they have asked to see something a la T!m style. Left tag was pulled through distress inks, middle tag was a mop up of the first one. Right tag is distress paints.


I used the layering stencils and distress inks to add more interest in the backgrounds, stamped various TH images in black stazon onto each tag and embellished with idea-ology pieces.


Over at Tag Along they want us to show our favourite technique. Well one of my favourite things to do is to take a white posca pen and pick out parts of the images to hi-light.


I used a pen nib for the body, and the word art was covered in glossy crackle and of course the white pen hi-lights.


And finally the spinners for the bodies and a spinner mounted on a couple of cogs and the white pen.

PanPastelUk are asking us to use stencils in our projects this week too.
