I really cannot tell you how many layers are on this tag, there are so many I could use it as a door stop! No seriously it's not that bad but there are a few.
I had absolutely no idea what direction I was going to take this project in so I just went with it and the end result didn't turn out too bad I don't think.
I started out with one of the massive Ranger tags. These tags are so big they stand alone as backgrounds and make great mini book pages or cards.
I put it through a wood grain embossing folder for texture and sprayed it with ink and I was initially hoping the spray would work it's way around the embossing and look totally cool but it just wasn't happening, so I covered that up with two coats of gesso. (Two because the first layer activated the ink colour). I sprayed again this time with two colours of Mr Hueys, Estate Green and Taxi Yellow. I loved the colour but over the gesso layer it was too bright and swamped the scrap layers on top so I toned this down a bit by scraping over some white acrylic.
The background still screamed at me but once I'd layered my photo and scrap papers it was looking a lot better.
I used Glitz color me happy papers, Ranger tissue tape and tiny alphabet stickers (Prima do some just the same).
Happy thursday, have fun and I'll see you next time.
