AVJ Tag Friday

Hi everyone,
I am thrilled beyond words to announce that I am now a creative guide at A Vintage JourneyI'm so honored to be part of this wonderful Creative Guide team! Secretly, this has been a huge goal of mine and I am so happy!  Today is not only the Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey but it is my first official post as an AVJ Creative Guide. How exciting! 

This is my first Tag Friday, I had some wrinkle-free fun with distress paints and I was really happy with the outcome of this vintage tag.

The Manila Tags was first given a coat of gesso.

Start to tear old book paper and glue them to the tag randomly.

I'd done some wrinkle-free distressing with those colors onto the tag. I really love the outcome.

I Stamped scrollwork stamp from Tim Holtz, I really love the shape.

I added Idea-ology Design Tape strips and then smeared some Crackle Paste in places.

I used my new Tim Holtz Wildflower Stems die to cut the flower from white card stock and I also do some blending using the distress oxide inks.

I dabbed the back of transparent wings with white paint to make wings stand out.

I sprayed the ribbon with Distress Spray Stain. I love using colored seam binding, it makes a nice embellishment on tags.

The Idea-ology Small Talk Stickers give me the necessary words to finish things off.

So please hop over to A Vintage Journey and be inspired by all the beautiful tags the Creative Guides have created this month! 
Thanks so much for stopping by & have a nice day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

ATC Coins

這次ATC交換的形式是製作ATC Coins。
藝術家交換幣(Artist Trading Coins)是在2.5英寸的圓形卡片上創作的小型藝術品。Artist Trading Coins是由Joanne於2018年創立。
大家可以搜尋 "CraftyHodges" 欣賞她的創作。

步驟一 : 先在水彩紙上噴顏料,乾後再用大隻的水彩筆滴上一大片水,形成一個圓形水窪。過幾分鐘,用廚房紙巾滾一滾,將多餘水分吸掉。再用白色壓克力顏料隨機噴上點點。

步驟二 : 用2.5"打洞器打下圓形底卡,在上面蓋印、刷邊。

步驟三 : 將在Etsy購買的紙娃娃圖案及雜誌上的人物圖案剪下拼貼,這是最好玩也作最久的部分,要找到大小、方向適合的頭還真有點困難......拼完後再用筆隨意塗鴉一下。

步驟四 : 將書頁撕下貼在圓形底卡上,並將紙娃娃貼上,組合完成。希望大家喜歡。
