Would you believe that the background for this tag was made out of toilet paper? Cuchy did a great demo of squashing wet toilet paper with an embossing folder in the second of the creative jumpstart workshops. She lives in Spain and we are hoping to go camping near Tarragona in Spain come the summer...so this tag holds my dream of doing that. I have painted the dried embossed toilet paper with watercolours and white paint to make it look aged..these colours remind me of my last visit to Spain when I stayed near Cadaques many years ago! I decided to add the tags to my altered book..this is the one I did last year where I used gesso and brown ink to distress the pages.
I made these 2 pages last night as I needed to do some art as I was really fed up..I find art very therapeutic especially when I have had a bad day. I incorporated the bliss tag on to a page just using inks and paints and stamps...I wasnt happy with the square edges of the bliss sticker and found that by holding a heat tool over it for a few seconds that you can scratch the edges to make it blend in the page better..so that is my free tip for you today!
