Longing for the sun

 Hello everyone, 

Welcome to my blog where today I am sharing a tag I made for AALL & Create. It expresses my feelings on the day I made it. We are having a very cold and wet Spring and I so wish it would turn to Summer! 

Here's how:

First I created the background with acrylic paint. I painted the tag green, dried it and then painted over with turquoise. Whilst the paint was still wet I put the stencil on and wiped away the wet paint with a baby wipe. Next I put the stencil back on and added a little white here and there. 

Next: Stamping.

and more stamping

I then added some flowers that I cut out of this washi tape by Janet Klein. 

I then stamped and coloured the girl. 

And here is everything put together. I added some shading under her feet and some black lines along the edges and around the words which are clippings stickers by Tim Holtz. 

I have used the following AALL & Create products:

Stencil #101 - Secret Numbers by Autour de Mwa
Stamps : #423 - Seaside by Janet Klein
#443 - Scripted circles by Bipasha BK
#489 - Wisecracks by Autour de Mwa

  2. I'm LOVING this tag, Corrie...the colour combination alone speaks to that time on the cusp of wet spring and summer sun. You have such a fabulous way of expressing yourself through your work that I am always in awe (and very often in envy). You rock!
