|6" x 6" Swatton Grid|
|6" x 6" Mimosa|
Sometimes you have to work smarter, not harder, so today I'm doing just that. I'm thinking ahead to the busy Christmas season, and I want to make my own gift tags this year. I also want to get my November art journal calendar spread done, so in comes the 'smarter'.
I cut a bunch of these little tags out of card stock, hole punched them and then pulled out may art journal calendar.
I spritzed some yellow Dylusions ink spray on the page and used a baby wipe to swirl it around a bit.
"Swatton Grid" stencil.
After creating all of that fabulous background colour and texture, I removed the tags and set them aside.
I pulled out my Liquitex paint markers and added some outlines and numbers, etc. to the calendar spread.
Then I added some extra texture to the journalling blocks by stencilling some white through the stencils, alternating "Mimosa 6" and "Swatton Grid"
And now to get back to those Christmas tags I was making... I added some doodles to the beautifully patterned tags using a gold Pearl Pen and all they need now is a pretty bit of gold yarn and they're ready to go!
