Hi, my dear friends! Today is a very good day because I could play with my new Magicals from Alexandra’s Artists set . I decided to make a couple of tags and present them to my crafty friends.
I made very simple but effective backgrounds and added some embellishments. After taking video I had another look at my tags and glued some small extra flowers and crystals. I usually do the same – make my project in the night and make the last decoration only in the morning with fresh eyes.
I began with covering the cardstock with white gesso and used pages from an old book to make my background more complex. Then I added some crackle paste to let the Magicals flow into the crackles. I created the background for the butterfly in the same way: glued old book’s page on the cardstock and covered with a thin layer of white gesso.
To make my tags more interesting I stamped several branches on the watercolor paper with gray archival inks. I did it in advance cause I love making fussy cuts while watching different series, it’s a kind of evening relaxation for me!
