Wow, Spoilt for choice this time, so many quotes and song lyrics to choose from.
The quote I kept coming back to was one by Jesse Joseph who had this to say about family – ” Family is like music, some high notes, some low notes, but always a beautiful song” I am not sure why I like it, I just do .
That’s my quote sorted now I just have to make the tag!
I have been playing with Brushos recently (cant stop playing with them, very addictive and you can use them in so many different ways, lots to learn) thanks to Eileen Godwin and her blog . They are such fun. I even let the Saturday craft group have a play last week. (You can see what we got up to on my previous post which also explains a little about them too)
This week I have been trying them with resist techniques and and this was the result of my first attempt with emboss resist using white embossing powder.
I just love the vibrancy of the colours and was determined that I was going to use this for my background, but how to get music into it as well? Then I remembered a recent Tim Holtz tag of 2014 where he had used embossed acetate.
So, a piece of some acetate packaging, run though embossing machine in embossing folder, paint the deboss side with white gesso, wipe off excess and voilà
Now all I need to do is turn it over write on my quote and attach to my tag.
Really like how this has turned out, hope you do too 🙂
