Already it's time for another challenge from my team-mates at the DragonsDream team - this fortnight, Silvia is really challenging us with yellow and texture. Yellow - such a bright, spring-like fresh colour.. Not one I use a lot of in my work (and definitely haven't got the colouring to wear it!) but here goes...
I dabbed the spatula into the gesso to raise the levels and produce the bumpy texture you see.. I left it to dry on it's own, overnight.
Repeated until I got the look I wanted (still no idea where the tag was taking me at present!)
Dried it, then cut it out, before I painted it with Cherry Red Fresco paint, slightly watered down (mainly to aid the spread of paint on the fabric) - on the back of the cotton.
When dry, turned it over and painted a little more on the front, and sealed the whole thing with Fresco Matt Glaze, mostly to seal the edges so they wouldn't fray.
Punched a circle from a piece of card, stamped take flight on it (Sara Naumann, same set as the bird) and using pop dots mounted it on the tag, over a few strands of fusible fibres (without fusing them!!)
A bright yellow ribbon finishes this off.
So, Silvia, a tough colour to pick but I loved it and am pleased with how it's turned out - so a big thanks!
Hope you'll pop over to Dragons Dream to see the other gorgeous tags, and we'd love to see you joining in - don't forget to use at least one real (rubber) stamp on your tag. Thanks for looking!
