Sarinda here with your mid week muse and a tag tutorial that will create oodles of texture on your works. This technique is stunning on canvas as well as smaller works. Also this technique I learned from an Artsy friend. Her name is Magda and her blog is also fun to go visit.
I have a secret that I what to let you in on.... I use all the time. I love color and often when I have a creative freeze I hop over to Design Seeds and look at all the color inspiration. This will always do the trick for me. Below is the color inspire image from Design Seeds that I used for this project.
Here is what you will need:
- Artistcellar Stencils TEXTures 2 and Tam's Inspiration
- Pitt Pens
- Gel Medium
- Palette Knife
- Acrylic Paint
- Sponge Brush
- Distress Ink Walnut Stain
- H2O in spray bottle
- Tissue Ephemera
Apply generous Gel Medium onto your tag.
Adhere ephemera to the tag. I used an old pattern and some Tim Holtz Tissue. Then trim off excess around the edges.
Step 3: Add your layers of acrylic paint. I started with a Yellow.
Find the TEXTures Stencils and add Raw Umber to parts of the tag.
Add a darker more intense Teal to parts of the edge and add water to blend.
Add Distress Ink to the surface and edges of tag.
Paint a yellow heart and fussy cut out.
Use Tam's Word stencil Loved.... Use the Pitt brush Pen and outline LOVE.
Give your new creation to a friend who needs to hear they are loved.
Thank you for joining me today. Wishing you all a very creative week.
