Hello my friends! Thanks for joining me. Just the other day, I was talking about the One Little Tag Craft Challenge (here)that I have been participating in this year. I have fallen very behind and I was explaining that for the time being, I am going to ignore the (optional) prompts and just create whatever tags I feel inspired to create. Well, Jenny Barnett Rohrs, creator of the One Little Tag Craft Challenge on Facebook, who has actually been tied up herself with a big move, issues another challenge. Sprays and stencils! I am sorry, but I cannot ignore this delicious challenge.
So, as usual, I like to do a lot at once, while I have everything out.
Do you think maybe I like stencils? (and trust me, this is just a sampling!)
Do you think that maybe I like sprays? (also just a sampling)
I have lots of photos here for you to have a look at if you like. I just grabbed whatever spray and stencil I felt compelled to grab, so I am not identifying each one, but you can get the idea of what I am up to. I started with spraying a "base" I just t used regular Recollections white cardstock.
It was quite warm today and I just put them out on the porch for a while. So after these dried, which didn't take long, it was time for the stencils...
I sprayed through the stencil, which I just sat loosely on the sheet. I didn't tape them down, I wasn't going for a really pressie look. On several of them, I flipped the stencil over and used the excess spray to give me the reverse image
(I just love how this one turned out)
I also had some tags already cut and some scrap card and watercolour paper that I had cut down. I used these to "clean" the stencils. These photos do not do thee justice. They turned out soooo cool!
Some of the previous inks also transferred which gives them a certain depth and texture with some beautiful shimmery areas. I like some of the ghost prints as much or better than the original images
Some of the pages that I created today will be cut down into tags, I will keep some as mixed media backgrounds, some will be cards and perhaps, some will become some of the first ever ATCs that I may try.
I have not actually produced a tag today. However, I did have a very productive day participating in the challenge!
Thanks so much for joining me and having a look at my blog, You are so appreciated!
