Lesson number 1 today was stamping through a stencil. Kristina suggested using a stencil with a big open area, but since I don't have any that fit that description, I just chose this Mini Tri Mosaic one and experimented. I like the results!
I used 3 distress inks, tumbled glass, broken china and peacock feathers, to sponge in the triangles. I started from the top left with the darkest ink and worked downward and diagonally, lightening the inks as I went. At that point there was a blank space at the upper right corner. Next I found a tiny music stamp (Skipping Stones Heartsong) and, while the stencil was still on, repeatedly stamped it with Splash ink across the surface. When I removed my stencil the music filled in the rest of the design.
I loved making the vellum tag yesterday, so I did another one today, using a Penny Black sentiment which I love, and then to illustrate it, I added the Memory Box branch and bird dies. And to add more of the kraft and red colors, I used a Doodlebug doodle twine and some natural twine to tie my tag.
Thanks for visiting me today!
