Time for some color play with bags & tags!
The bag on the left is full of color with the bold and bright Americana Neon colors.
To the right,this bag, is lighter and springy using some Americana Multi Surface Satin mixed with Media Fluid Acrylic.
Brown paper Kraft bags I purchased awhile ago for a project,were used as my substrate.
To begin,the bags received a coat of white gesso.
For the first bag:
After the gesso was dried,I stenciled the NEONS through a circle stencil using a pouncer.
Repeat on reverse side of bag.
On the next second bag:
Mix Iris and White Titanium and stencil
Repeat on opposite side of bag.
Mix small amount of Iris and White Modeling Paste.
Scrape with palette knife through same stencil on one or both sides.
Allow to dry fully
Next are the tags I created by drawing egg shapes onto and cutting out of shipping tags.
Base coat each egg both side with white gesso
Apply chosen colors to each tag,allowing first side to dry and repeating on opposite.
Flick and spatter some tags with contrasting colors.
Spritz & spray a few tags with Shimmer Misters.
On one or more eggs,
Apply White Crackle Paint,
When dry add Sand texture paste through stencil,let dry
Lightly paint acrylic paint and coat over entire egg,wiping back areas for interest.
When dry smudge Metallic Lustre' over raised areas and along the edges of eggs as well.
Coat backsides of all eggs with Gloss Medium
Now,time to doll up the egg tags using
Gecko Galz collage sheets
After fancy cutting and tearing edges of my collage picks,I used Metallic Lustre around the edges,applied with my fingers.
A few embellishments added,bits of lace,torn papers as well as flowers.
Add some fancy ribbon or string for hanging.
Final step was to add gloss to front of tags as well.
And here is your Free blog stamp for the month of March!
Thank you Gecko Galz!!
