Here's a clue - I started with these
Well, three to be precise, with a vague idea about what I wanted to do.
Last year I was lucky enough to get a place on a Tim Holtz workshop where goodies were set out on the table so having limited resources at the caravan I dug out these
First thing I did was coat the envelopes in gesso then added some paint, using a baby wipe.
While things were drying I started on some tags (can you see where I'm going?)
I keep a selection of tags - some of which have been run the through the cuttlebug and thought they would be ideal for this.Lots of cutting out, stamping, distressing and tearing involved!
Then back to finishing the envelopes.
I don't suppose I kept you guessing at all!
I did have a lovely discovery while making this - Gesso plus copper acrylic paint gives a lovely shade of pink, not what I intend but I do like it!
I would like to enter this in A Vintage Journey's challenge this time - 'A little bit French' Take a look at their blog for loads of inspiration.
Thanks for looking, Chris
