Have I ever mentioned how much I love That’s Crafty’s Alterable Surfaces?!!
Here I used one of the MDF hearts on a white/greyboard tag.
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics:- Sherbert, Brown Shed, Blush, Nougat, Antarctic, Blue Smurf, Lake Wanaka, Chalk, Lilac, Dolly Mix and Prawn from Limited Edition JOFY Set 3 and Fresco Pearl Glaze
Crackle Paste (I used Golden but That’s Crafty! stocks alternatives)
Old Rolling Pin or Clay Tools
Extras:- Fabric and Deli Paper
Due to the drying time, I always prepare any paperclay elements first.
Roll paperclay to required thickness. Stamp the wings into the paperclay, no need to ink up the stamp. Leave to dry on a flat surface.
Apply Grunge Paste and the various paints onto the tag, misting with water to allow the paints to drip and blend. Follow by randomly stamping Messy Writing.
Onto the MDF heart apply Gesso followed with a generous application of Crackle Paste. Once dry, paint with a mixture of Sherbert, Blush and Chalk. Also paint the paperclay wings. After painting the wings, I added a dab of Pearl Glaze to the wings.
Apply various paints onto deli paper followed by stamping various Finnabair circles and Messy Writing. Paint a scrap of watercolour, followed by stamping Finnabair sentiment then cutting into word tiles and inking edges.
Finally, assemble the tag with the stamped elements, heart and wings also adhering fabric to the top and bottom edges of the tag, pleating the fabric at the bottom.
Until next time,
