This week's challenge on Grungy Monday is to use a paint dabber resist with custom colorized pearl sprays. For the details on this technique click HERE to see Tim Holtz give the step-by-step instructions on his blog. Here we go!
I used the dabber resist technique at the top portion of the tag, using Tim Holtz starburst stamp. I accented the starburst with a black pitt pen. Here's a close up.
Then I got out some text printed canvas (Prima) and cut it slightly larger than the bottom portion of the tag, spritzed with some color sprays (same technique as above), and added some white drippage for another layer of interest.
I sketched in a small landscape and then added in some of Dyan Reaveley's wavy houses. Accented all portions of both houses with a white pen, cut the roof off the big house, and then used foam tape to add them to the tag, using a double thickness on the roof for extra dimension.
Then added the "it's all perspective" words (from Tim Holtz stamp), to emphasize the *perspective* of the tag, with the smaller house (hopefully) looking further away than the bigger one in the foreground.
Used my tiny attacher to staple the canvas to the tag base, and continued all the way around so the staples act as a frame.
Added some embellishments - an antique brass heart with charm clock, and a Maya Road star pin colored with alcohol ink (butterscotch). And some rag ribbon trim at the top.
Hope you liked this tag - be sure to check out the other awesome projects on the Grungy Monday blog!
Have a great week!
