I am trying to get back into blogging and from next week, I’m re-running last year’s Monday Mojo email series, but attempting to create a new piece of artwork each week. If you are not already on the list, check out the side bar for a sign up box. Monday Mojo is a weekly email tutorial delivered to your inbox early on a Monday morning with the idea of starting your week on a note of inspiration and creativity.
Last night I knew I only had about half an hour in my craft room, so I just wanted to create something quickly, without too much equipment or fuss. So this little tag came about using a kraft tag, Versafine inks (Onyx Black, Satin Red and behind the text is Spanish Moss) and coloursoft pencils. I stamped the leaf around the edge with Satin red, then stamped the bird on a branch with black and coloured it with pencils. I stamped the leaf again on a separate tag with Spanish Moss and stamped the words in black, then cut them out and edged each piece with the red before gluing onto the tag. The stamps are all from Woodland Dreams.
I made it with no purpose in mind, other than to just create something. Now I’m looking at it and thinking about the house we are hoping to buy at the moment and I can see the text making a good writing prompt for a journal page about the move.
I sprayed some journal pages last week with a mix of old and new Dylusions colours, so I think this tag will sit quite well on one of these.
Thanks for visiting – I hope to be back on a more regular basis.
