Favourite Five #2 ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Today’s look back was fun and hard at the same time lol! I struggled to pick five favourite 2015 cards but it in the end it came down to the ones I loved then and still do the bonus is that they are also the cards that taught me a lot although I didn’t realise it at first lol.
#1 Watercolour, inks, H2O paints and glossy medium on one card that had stamping and stencilling. I had fun combining them and learnt more about them.
#2 Stamping onto PP/DP, colouring the images and applying glossy medium once I was finished made the stamped images look like they were part of the PP/DP.
#3 My favourite flower stamp again, a stencilling experiment and a new to me technique = happy bunny!
Last year was the year that I really got into using stencils along with stamps and many different products at the same time too. Then I really started enjoying creating tags and off the page projects too. So as I had already done my Favourite Five Christmas Cards and now my Favourite Five Cards I wanted to look back at the tags that I have created as well as off the page projects too, so I hope you don’t mind me sharing my Favourite Five Tags and Favourite Five Off the Page too!
I made this for my mum but I forgot to give it to her at Christmas, lol!
The canvas, LHS, my OH loves so we'll keep it.
The hanging, RHS, one of my favourites because I drew and coloured the female so I'll keep that one
This one is two sided so you can go almost neon bright or pastel!
I recycled a little box that came with embellishments: love it!
Then I started playing with tags and I learnt a lot. I have a lot more to learn too and I played along with the Tim Holtz techniques three times last year. This year I want to and am hoping to do the techniques every month.
I love all five of these tags!
This one is two sided, I love both!
I learnt to like paint and embrace the mucky. I found out that I love distress and shabby and I’m able to cope with a little brown! ttfn Karen xx
