2015 Theme 12: Stencils
Hi Clare here with a starry tag tonight. I am using one of my favourite stencil techniques 'the wipe back' sounds like a surfer move or something doesn't it?
Step Three: I decided to stick my background onto a tag, applied a little Indigo Treasure Gold around the edge and stamped stars to the right hand side of the tag using EEG06.
Step Four: I stamped/coloured one of my girl images from ECL05 with watercolour pencils and cut her out. I felt that I needed to extend her body a little so she looked in proportion on the size of Manilla Tag I had chosen.
It was great to cut away the hearts around my girl and utilize the image in another context by looking up to the stars instead! Try and look at your stamps in that way, especially when journaling. Notice I coloured her hair grey, though I understand dyeing your hair grey is a trend with the young. I have never been trendy in my life and choose silver grey as I believe we should reflect the real us more often...wink!
