Tags with New Goodies

I treated myself to some Seth Apter stencils and some Teesha Moore stamps. These have all been on my wish list for ages!!!

I also treated myself to a Seth Apter Webinar called Magic of Mixed Media Layers, and first off was to give your chosen surface a coat of black gesso.

Next add a rough layer of a colour you're not too fond of, hence mine are all a shade of pink - lol 

Then add another layer of another colour.

Next, add paint to another surface, ie the tag on the right, and squish it onto the other tags. 

Keep going with these layers until you are happy with what you get, added bonus is, you end up with a forth background surface.

Next add random background stamping, I used various colours of Stazon and parts of a variety of cling stamps.

Then using my brand new Seth Stencils, I stenciled onto the tags using a stipple brush.

I added doodling with a white and black posca pen and outlined some of the stenciling and I really liked them as they are, but as Seth said, don't be afraid to add the next layer, so here goes!

I stamped some of my new Teesha girls onto white paper and coloured them in with a variety of bright coloured pens.

And this is how they've finished up.

The Teesha Moore stamps are gorgeous, and I love how you've embraced the pink in your layers. Looks like you've had a great play day.

They look great Sam, I loved them before you put the stamped images on but they add another dimention. It is always hard to cover up something you love.

I just finished Seth's webinar on Thurs. and took 5 pages of notes so I could try his technique. Love it! I cannot wait til they upload it so I can actually create this time. Love your pop sticks and tags above. I also love your Teehsha stamps. I have the one set of girls and hope to get the other soon
Happy Saturday!
