Hey-lo everyone! Hope you're all doing well. I have a tag and tutorial I created for the new mixed media challenge over at Artist Trading Post for you today!
I was inspired by Autumnal colours, pulling warm reds and oranges together.
A few details to spy ;)
I just love this butterfly, which I had sat on my desk for an age. It was cut from a sheet of 12x12 (Prima Lyric collection) and I'm very pleased I finally put it to good use!
Step 1: Applying white gesso to kraft tags, texturising with a palette knife.
Step 2: Next step, splodging some Dr. Martins india inks on top of the gesso.
Step 3: I dropped a selection of the india inks (Orange, Van Dyke Brown, Cherry Red and Yellow Ochre) onto acetate...
Step 5: Adding some details with a pencil and mask
Step 6: Spreading clear 3D Gel over the pencilled details.
Step 7: Next I applied a layer of crackle paint (Marigold) onto a strip of paper and sprinkled with Prima Art Ingredients Pearl glass glitter on top.
Step 8: Stamping onto a piece of ripped vellum with a Prima Vintage Vanity Advert #2 clear stamp.
Step 9: Time for layering up all the prepared tags and embellishing with Art Ingredients mica flakes in Granite and a glittered circle which I made by spreading 3D Gel into a bottle top, sprinkling with glitter and then leaving to dry. Once completely dry it peels away to form a perfect circle!
Step 10: I've finished up the tag with a few more embellies, including copper tape, butterfly which was painted and highlighted with Glossy Accents and "Imagine Freedom" title.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and have a fab weekend!
