Fairy Dreams Tag

This month we are teaming up with Sin City Stamps to bring you some fun combo projects using stamps and/or chipboard from this fun company.

Today I wanted to share my fairy themed tag...

Fairy Dreams

The green background was created by placing a stencil over a piece of white cardstock. Spread a layer of heavy body gesso, modeling or embossing paste over the stencil.  Carefully lift off the stencil and you have a fun design left on the cardstock.  Once dry you can color with desired medium.  For this example I used Silks Acrylic Glaze.

The Anime fairy was stamped on watercolor paper and colored using watercolor pencils and blended with a Niji Waterbrush.  A bit of clear Stickles Glitter Glue was added to her wings for a bit of  sparkle.  Once everything was dry I fussy cut her and mounted her on the tag using double stick foam tape to pop her off the background for a bit more dimension.

  1. Roni, I really like the tag. The soft aqua color almost makes her look like a water sprite. Very pretty!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
