This is the first of two tags that I made for Tag It Tuesday February 2017 on the theme of geometric shapes. They are for my son, who has been unwell and will take some time to fully recover.
This tag is obviously based around circles. I started with a #8 Manilla Tag and glued on a selection of book text circles, die cut using the four smallest of the nesting circles dies by Tonic Studios.
Next, a layer of watered down gesso.
Texture was added using several sections of the 7" x 7" Dotty Wave stencil by Claritystamp and some Pebeo High Density Modelling Paste.
Once dry, I sprayed some Mowed Lawn Distress spray over the centre of the tag, spritzed with water and let it drip down. Once dry, I blended some Forest Moss ink down the right hand side. I added a light mist of water and dabbed some kitchen towel over the right hand side to lift some of the colour and add a mottled effect.
When everything had been dried off with my heat tool, I sprayed Twisted Citron distress spray down the left hand side of the tag, added a spritz of water and allowed it to drip down around the textured sections.
