Sing In The Rain by Lynne Moncrieff


Hello, This week I am sharing a tag which is a page from a larger project. 


Ranger Manilla Tag #10
Extras:- Bodhi Leaf, Found Papers, Mop-Up Papers, Old Button, Cotton Sewing Thread, Silk Sari Ribbon


Apply Gesso to tag and once dry, randomly apply Grunge Paste. Follow this with Infusions, sprinkling 2 to 3 colours, misting generously with water. Allow colour to drip downwards, catching excess colour with various papers and textiles. All to dry.

Stamp Lin Brown sentiment and textural elements onto stained found papers. Layer the stamped elements onto the stained tag, also layering pieces of stained found papers including torn corrugated cardboard. Embellish with old button, allowing thread to trail. 

Onto bottom edge stamp Leaf Prints – the stamping is irregular because I applied Grunge Paste here. Continue adding more stamped texture to the tag, with Lin Brown stamps.

As I said, this tag is part of a larger project but sari silk ribbon, stained with Infusions, could be threaded through the tag’s hole, to complete the project.

Until next time,
