"Christmas Tags"


I covered my tiny oval frame with white crackle paint and my small reindeer and star with German Glass Glitter in gold, I left my title "Noel" raw and added some gorgeous Green Tara Gold Mesh:

 I covered large tree and title with white crackle paint, I painted my holly flourish with white gel pen added some distress stickles to the leaves and gold glitter to berries and shapes on tree:


Here is the last one, using more Green Tara Gold Mesh and rose:

SCRAP AROUND THE WORLD NOVEMBER CHALLENGE!

Hello,

Today I have a sample for Scrap Around the World November Challenge, Imaginarium Designs are Guest Designers this month! Here is the Inspiration Board:


I was inspired by the right bottom corner picture - the pastel heart - I knew straight away what I wanted to do with that photo!

"Smile"



 1) I grabbed my Imaginarium Designs Alphas and glued them down on a handcut Heart! I applied a thick layer of Gesso over the lot, then I sprayed some Glimmermist, in yellow, pink, blue and green, I even got some orange when the yellow and pink mixed together! How easy and very cheap too! I love the effect!
2) I then glued the Heart on a home-made watercolour background, I did not use glimmermist for the background as I wanted a more subtle effect, I used watercolour pencils and water brush! And my favourite gasket masks + modeling paste!
3)I glued my background paper over a bigger piece of paper (12x12) on which I had sprayed glimmermist on the edges, same colours I used on my Heart.
4) I then added my cute photo and 8 different Green Tara flowers that were altered with some gesso. I am having a great time with all my Imaginarium Designs & Green Tara products as you can see! I am completely addicted to both!
I am such a pastel type of girl I have discovered! Love soft colours and textures...

I went for a neutral colour combo, some gorgeous Kaisercraft paper I was given by a scrappy friend :), some Imaginarium Chipboard and Green Tara flowers of course! and some GOLD accents here and there. I used some skeleton ribbon at the bottom of my photo matting (it is one of my favourite Green Tara product!!!!).

Here is a closie of the golden tip feather :)

I altered a Green Tara silver leaf with gesso and distress stickles and wrapped it around my photo frame, added a gorgeous gold leaf garland and an ID hexagon under my photo mat and some Green Tara skeleton mesh in gold:
