2015 Theme 9: Words
Hi everyone Clare Lloyd here, joining you this evening with a post about my girlie hang ups...LOL! I really love a play on words, as they can provoke thought or raise a smile. For me they are an important part of any journal or mixed media project. My little tags or hangers make a perfect humorous gift for a like minded pal or as a reminder to yourself when having a bad day:
To tell you the truth these girlie faces were coloured for another project but I went off on a tangent and so kept them for a rainy day. Today they got to be cut out and used, well all that colouring in with watercolour pencil couldn't be wasted...could it!
I used some Heavy weight Smoothy card, stamped a journal card image from EEG02 using Black Archival Ink. Then layered up images from Pierott 2, Mini 72 using different generations of black ink and a LimeLight Fresco paint ink splat Mini 57.
On a scrap on card I smeared on some leftover Limelight and Southern Skies Fresco paint. Then stamped out some hats and the phrase from Pierott 2 using Black Archival ink.
All these elements got layered up onto my journal tag using foam pads. As you will probably spot I even used some of the hats to make a border at the bottom of my hanger. I was in the zone with these hangers so made 2 more hangers using the rest of my girlie faces plus journal cards/words from EEG01, EEG03 and also used elements Hot Pick 1008. To create the circle borders I cut out a tear drop shape from each element so I had a bit to stick down onto the back without losing the circle shapes.

Why no try a play on words in one of your projects? Look out for some single words or part of sentiments that can be cut out to create new phrases. Don't forget mixing fonts styles can look great so have a rummage through all your crafting stash.
Great hang ups Clare, such a brilliant mix of stamp collections.It is always fun to use up leftovers, and these will bring a smile to anyone who receives them.
