Hi folks, welcome to my blog and thank you for visiting. I really appreciate that you've chosen to take a look at what I've been doing. Today it's my effort for The Artful Times blog challenge, which is to make a fabric tag.
Up till now I've resisted doing anything with a Yuletide theme, for a couple of reasons, one being that I can't really to begin to think about it until after my son's birthday in the middle of November. However, I think it's about time, so here it is!
Once the background was dry, I stamped the harlequin pattern (another Artistic Stamper stamp) in gold Brilliance and brushed gold Perfect Pearls where I wanted the pattern to stand out. I stuck the adhesive swirls down onto the background and glittered them with Old Gold Art Institute glitter. Finally, I arranged the holly leaves on the tag ( I stuck them down with offcuts of the adhesive sheet left over from cutting the swirl - thrifty, eh?)
And there we have it. In the flesh, the red and gold are very vibrant and I am thinking of developing the theme for one of the pages in the mini-album I began earlier this week. Could be good!
