Hmmmm, where will all this good stuff lead...?
Today I have made a giant tag using the new "Tag Pad" that Altered Pages now carries.
The paper is quality watercolor paper and I LOVED working with it. I am going to keep the commentary as short as possible and let the pictures do most of the talking (this should be interesting.) A detailed supply list is provided and the end of this post.
Background created first with palette knife, gesso and punchinella. I was too excited and forgot to snap
a pic before I began painting. Picture all of those circles started out white. ;-)
The color was achieved by using watercolor and then a bit of white and black acrylic around the edges.
The acrylic was just finger painted on.
This next pic is the back of the tag. Now, pretty from both sides.
This is vintage text applied with matte medium.
Then a bit of that same watercolor...
Now, for some gold gilding...oh, ahhhh...
A couple architectural collage images.
Pretty pink flowers given a bit more depth with
watercolor and white acrylic paint.
Finishing touches with fibers and butterfly collage images.
And, here ya go. Pretty layers of gesso, watercolor,
acrylic paint, gold gild, collage, fibers and DIY-able flowers.
I hope you enjoyed. All month long we are showcasing projects made with USArtQuest.
The gold golding/leafing used here is just one of their products.
