I would imagine all of your festivities are well under way by now and the hustle and bustle of the season is being felt by all !!, as usual i am well behind, presents and food shop still to do, not forgetting the all important wine shop of course, we still have to get our tree (we get a real one and put it up the weekend before Christmas) so Christmas will be hitting the Scott household shortly !!
Have managed to find time to play with my fabulous Dina Wakley paints (of course there is always time to play !!) the coliours are perfect for all seasons and i decided to create a multi coloured Christmas tag to show how versatile they can be.
I started with the fabulous Distress Pads in Pickled Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Spiced Marmalade and Mowed Lawn (all of these colours compliment Dinas vibrant colours perfectly) and stencilled through one of Dylusions stencils to give a multi coloured effect completely covering the tag. I turned my tag upside down so that the hole was at the bottom.
I then used a dylusions circle stencil and stencilled over the top with texture paste to give some extra dimension.
I then went in with Dinas colours Turquoise, Magenta, Lemon, and a touch of Lime and randomly dry brushed them onto my tag building up layers.
Once this was done i took some vintage book paper and vintage music paper and tore into various length strips, crumpled them up and added some lime paint with a dry brush, These were then glued down to create the shape of my Christmas Tree.
I raided my button box and glued them to my tree and then dry brushed some white paint over the top to tone them down a little, I used white paint and a credit card to add some random paint lines all over my tag and then to finish i stamped my sentiment and added fibres to the top and bottom of my tag to be able to hang it up.
