I finally had some time to play yesterday and today! I am doing a Holiday gift tag swap that is hosted by Wishstudio. There is still time to enter, if you are interested follow this link WishStudio Gift Tag Swap.
I had fun...first I cut out my tags from my favorite grunge paper, then I painted a coat of gesso on both sides. When I painted the gesso on the front side I made sure to leave a few lumps and bumps to add texture. Next I used a paper towel to paint on several shades of blue.
Art Chix Studio. I decided that I wanted the trees silver, so I used silver embossing powder and a heating tool to change the color.
I am entering a contest that they have on their blog using German Scrap materials, if you'd like to enter there is still time on that one too! Check out the post on My Artistic Life.
Next, I added a little sparkle with Swarovski crystals and a pretty white ribbon to attach it to a gift. Here is the end product.
I am excited to send them off in the mail and can't wait to see the tags that I get back. I will post photos of them when I receive them in the mail.
There will be no Artist of the Week Post this week because of the holiday week. I hope you all have a wonderful Turkey Day! Stacie
