Hope you are all good!
Its been another super busy week here.....with not a lot of free time to get inky!
However, I did manage to squeeze in a quick playtime using the Distress oxides....
I love, love, love the effects they give....the best way to describe them is its a bit like adding milk to your ink, they are a real game changer allowing you to create some cool backgrounds!
I had a play on two tags
For this tag I used fossilised Amber, faded jeans, cracked pistachio,
spiced marmalade and walnut stain
I built up the layers of oxides, I love that they don't mud,
you can still see the colour onto of each layer.
I then added lots of Idea-ology cogs....these were painted using texture paste
then coloured using the oxides
The man doll is from the Idea-ology paper dolls....his wings are from the botanical ephemera pack
For the next tag used the oxides to create a background and stamped using a text background.
I then added a layer of ranger crackle paste and left it to dry.
Next I added some texture using one of Tim's stencils with some grit paste,
when it had dried I used distress crayons and the oxides to colour the paste.
(note: the paste will pick up some of the oxide colour of the background too as it is distress!)
I then painted the girls using distress paint and crayons
I used cracked pistachio, walnut stain and fossilised amber in the oxides
The stars were punched out and coloured the same way
To finish I added some words from the Idea-ology clippings and framed them in a vintage optical slide from my own stash.
These tags were fun to create and were great to experiment with the oxides....
As always please feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate you popping by
Have a lovely week
Bye for now
