March Tag.. Spring is in the air.

As some of you may know each month I have been creating a Tag using the same 
prompts/instructions given in a 12 week Tag challenge last year... 
It's a *Personal* Challenge I have set myself....Here is my March creation

1:Tando Long Tag Covered with White Gesso then  layer of paint Dylusions Lemon Zest, 
2: A Layer of Blue Sky Acrylic, applied with a sponge to mark make.
3: Modelling paste pushed through a leaf design stencil (not too sure who its made by)
4: Strips of torn book pages used as collage and covered with matt medium.

       5: A layer of Diluted Lemon Meringue Acrylic paint covers the tag.
6: Dylusions Chopped Pesto dripped down the side of the tag.
 7: DecoArt Textured Sand paste pushed through a flower design stencil.

8:Coated the whole tag in clear Gesso
9: Stamped Foliage from PaperArtsy Eclectica EKD06 by Kim Dellow..
(Thank you James I love my Mothers Day Stamps)
10: Used the Large Flower head from the set as my Focal image
coloured with pencils and layered for dimension. 

11: Leaves have been coloured with wink of stella dark green,
Indentations highlighted with Inktense pencils and washed with water to fix them.
Gilding wax rubbed over any raised area.
White Posca pen highlights dotted here and there.
Distress dyed ribbon along with another coloured stamp from Kim Dellow
adds to the embellishing.

12: Words Spring is in the air are from Tim Holtz

and that is my March Tag completed following those simple instructions.

Thank you for popping by, I hope you have been inspired by my creation using those 
(Thanks again Chris..x)

  1. Gorgeous , I love the textural background and the colours are wonderful . Lovely design. Tracy x

    1. Thank you Tracy, I love using these instructions but worry i'm over thinking the task ahead as they were originally given to take no longer than 10 minutes each task. It's difficult when you already know what lies ahead. Thank you for taking time to come and look Tracy.. Take care x Hugs Tracey xx

    1. It's not until the end when I start to highlight areas that the textures really do seem to come to lift. Thank you for visiting xx
