If You Met My Family by Donna Gray


Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today with a head swap and who doesn't love a good head swap right?! Meet Saffie who is Fred's big sister and she has plenty of attitude let me tell you :)

What I did:

I used one of the gorgeous little greyboard tags from That's Crafty! as my base, coating it with a layer of their scrummy yummy black Gesso for a lovely chalkboard finish.

I stamped the body from Lilith (AALL and Create) and the head from Freddy and Friends (That's Crafty!) onto a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper and coloured them in with a mixture of Mermaid and Distress Markers. They were fussy cut out and put to one side while I took a white Posca pen and just added some random doodling to the background of the tag.

I then stamped a hat (Poppy and Daisy Collection) and the thought bubble (from Bentley) onto more Strathmore paper and coloured the hat in the same way as mentioned before.

I then adhered everything to the tag with small foam pads to add extra dimension and drew a little white line to connect the balloon/thought bubble to Saffie.

I added a snarky comment from Tim Holtz and a piece of twine as the finishing touches.

I firmly believe this is what Saffie thinks of her family....especially her little bro Fred ;)
