Dylusions Journal Tags by Carol Fox


I quite often like to add pockets for tags between the pages of my journal as this gives me room to write and I do love the way my journals look with the tags sticking out. Today I am decorating a couple of tags for a page I did a while ago.


What I did


·       I gave my tags a coat of gesso.

·       I then masked off parts of the tag and sprayed it with orange ink, blot and dry it.


·       Reposition your masks to cover the orange bits and then spray with the pink ink, again blot and dry. 



·       Remove the masks and spritz with water to blend the colours slightly, while wet stand up the tag to let the colours run down and blend a little bit, use a heat gun to dry them. 


·       Use a stencil and add Melted Chocolate to the bottom of the tags, dry.


·       Use a different stencil and apply gesso to your tags, dry them thoroughly. 



·       To finish my background I sprayed Melted Chocolate onto my craft mat, I tapped the top of my tags into this, then lightly spritzed them with water and stood them up to let the colour run downwards.


·       I finished my tags with direct stamping and coloured my images using DecoArt Multi Surface Paint.




I used the following
