Welcome to my blog! I am a stamp addict who has become obsessed with Mixed Media techniques and learning new techniques! I’m trying to learn how to draw and paint using books and social media. I love creating cards and mixed media projects for others and my family. I blog to keep a record of my progress.
you want to know how I created the background please go to Tim Holtz step by stephere. The phrase I printed from my computer and I
have added Distress ink before trimming them and attaching to the tag. I also used several black snippets to die cut
the birdcage and bird from. I cut the
bird cage for a second time in funky foam and attached that to the bird cage
and left it to dry I don’t have any black funky fun and the yellow that I used
was visible on the side view. So I
splashed some black acrylic paint to the sides of the yellow foam and left it
to dry. Once it was dry I attached that
to the tag.
funky foam is a tip I have learnt from Jennifer McGuire and it’s a fabulous way
to create your own specially shaped adhesive foam square and if you are
attaching a big layer (see post 1st November) it stops that layer
from dipping in some places. I usually
attach it to the base with double sided tape I used glue this time because my
tape is and was too wide for the bird cage.
Thank you so much for taking
the time to visit and comment. I really
do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this soon ttfn Karen x
