GD: Kate Yetter Project #3 Tag Board

Hello everyone, Kate here with my final project of the week. These 3 nights seem to fly by.

Items from PaperArtsy are as follows: HP1302EZ, HP1306EZ, Heavy Grey Board Tags, Fresco Finish Paints (IceBlue, Vanilla, Irish Cream, French Roast, Bora Bora, Caramel, Crackle Glaze), Crunchy Waxed Kraft Paper, Smoothy White Stamping Card Paper Flowers. From my stash: Buccaneer Bay Blue Ink Spray, Smooch Spritz Sea Kiss, I Am Roses Flowers, Gesso.

I spread Fresco Finish Ice Blue with a palette knife completely covering my Heavy Grey Board Tag.

Next I spread a thin coat of Fresco Finish Crackle Glaze over the entire tag.

Once the Crackle Glaze was completely dry, I painted a coat of Fresco Finish Vanilla over the top. The crackles appear pretty quickly.

I stamped my image from HP1303EZ and colored it in using Fresco Finish Bora Bora and Distress Markers.

I also used the oval stamp from HP1303EZ.

I stamped a script stamp from HP1306EZ on the tag background.

I added more stamping on the background from HP1302EZ.

Fresco Finish Caramel, Irish Cream and IceBlue were used to color my stamped image.

I sketched some shadows onto my stamped image with a micro pen.

I cut a rectangle from the Crunchy Waxed Kraft Paper.

I crinkled the paper by rolling it into a ball and then flattening it out.

I painted over the wax paper with a wash of Fresco Finish French Roast. I was attempting to give it a more leather-like appearance.

I used Lindy’s Moon Shadow Buccaneer Bay Blue on my tag background, allowing it to drip. (Can you tell by now that I love drippy paint?)

I added some more drips using Smooch Spritz Sea Kiss.

I attached the stamped image to the torn and crinkled wax paper with mini staples. I placed it where I wanted on my tag, added some flowers to embellish and used a palette knife and gesso to accent the areas around the image.

I used Fresco Finish Irish Cream and a Palette knife in the same way as the gesso to accent and add more color.

I found a piece of ephemera in my stash, washed it with a bit of gesso and then sprayed it with the Buccaneer Bay Blue spray. I cut out my stamped and colored image from HP1303EZ and attached it to the middle with a few flowers.

Lastly, I added holes to the ephemera and tag bottom before threading some brown ribbon to attach the two pieces.

Well that's it folks from me this week. Thank you for all the lovely comments and support. See you all again next month.


Leandra Says: Ohh I love the great way you have brought the face to life with your shading, and just adore those drippy drops, and the embellishment at the foot is the perfect finishing touch!

Gillian Says: So pretty and feminine, neat touch with the hanging label. Thanks for a great week of projects Kate.

Fabulous background and colours and especially like the added ephemera hanging from the bottom. I agree with the other commentors that your shadowing has definitely added to the beautiful face.
