For today's AALL & Create
post I have made a tag book. I love making little books, it is very satisfying.
I used lots of stamps and stencils for this and here's how I made it:
I cut these tags with a die from white card stock and gave them some colour with Acrylic paints on the gelli plate. I also used the stencils with a darker shade to add some interest.
I made the tags into an accordion book with washitape; I used extra glue to make sure everything stays put. I then stamped the backgrounds. By the way the back is roughly the same, printed and stamped as well.
Next I took stamp sets #199 and @200 and stamped them on the tags and on white card stock. I also chose the sentiments and stamped those too.
I coloured all the flowers, using Copic Markers.
After cutting them out I adhered them over the top of the stamped images. I then added splatters with a white paint pen.. I love this effect.
I then added the sentiments; I matted them on black card stock to make them stand out more and added a ribbon so you can close the book:
I also decorated the front tag on the back because it shows when the book is closed. The rest of the tags are just painted and stencilled at the back.
I have used the following stamps:
#211 - Count on you by Aida Domisiewicz
#212 - Bright side by Aida Domisiewicz
#199 - Eclectic stems by Tracy Evans
#200 - Hope by Tracy Evans
#30 - Numbers by Autour de Mwa
#41 - Mickle Muckle by Autour de Mwa
#58 - Mock Croc by Autour de Maw
