She's no Wallflower by Tracey Fairgrieve


Hello Creative Friends..

It's my turn to share some That's Crafty! creativity with today's 
creation focusing on the Pantone colour of the 2018 *Ultra Violet*

Here's today's how to do's in words and pictures..

Using one of my MDF Tester Tags (I often use these as a palette to 
mix paints and paste) I scratched back some of the surface using a fork.

Amelie was stamped then coloured in pencil using similar colours within the tag.
A left over found flower from Lynnes Affirmations was darkened with a purple brush pen.

Using Sari Yarn I spiralled patterns to create interesting shapes
all glued down using 3D Gel Medium and embellished with flat back gems.

Stippling white paint through the Cobble Stones Dinky Stencil
 helps break up some of those shades of purple.

With Amelie glued in place the flower acts as a hair 
accessory adorned with a large lilac pearl.

My Tag Creation is complete.

I've never been fond of the colour purple but it seems to be everywhere
at the moment and I must admit Donna's Fabulous Amelie looks fab in any colour.

Thank you for sharing your time
I look forward to sharing more of mine with you all
the same time next week.

Take care everyone

Creative Hugs
Tracey xx
