Tag Inspired by Kate - PA


Over at the PA blog this week there is a new DT, Kate Yetter. Now Kate has created a journal cover which you can see here. I took her day 2 idea and created a tag using one of my gelli plate prints from yesterday. 


Close up of the stamping over the gesso which hasn't come out perfect due to the ridges created by the pallet knife when applying, but I quite like it.

Another fab piece Sam. Got a bit of either mystery or history to it. Clever girl as always. Xx

Great to see the fruits of your 'playtime'. I like the effect of your stamping over the Gesso. This LP image is perfect of that kind of aged look. Julie Ann xxx

I think the image not being stamped perfectly, fits the tag really well. It is beautiful !

It makes a change for a LP image to be not so perfect, i like it. The dry brushing is a nice touch too.
