Life Book Week 2 – Playing Tag

It’s week 2 of Life Book 2015 and we have a bonus project this week, which is nice. It gives people some who might still be working on week 1, a little breathing room. This week we’re Playing Tag with Roben-Marie Smith, who is part of Art to the 5th, the wonderful group of ladies that run the Documented Life Project. We were to create a tag using a word that we’ll be carrying with us through out the year. As you know from my previous posts, my word for the year is Release, so that’s what I used for my tag. 2015-01-06 18.25.49 I’ll show you how you can create your own to hang in your craft space or pin to your inspiration board, any place that you might need a gentle little reminder of your intention for the year. 2015-01-06 17.55.24I started by spraying a tag with Dylusions ink. I used Cherry Pie and Pure Sunshine, then dried it with a heat tool. Don’t worry if it begins to curl up on you, as it dries it will flatten itself out. 2015-01-06 18.01.39 Using one of my own hand carved stamps and StazOn ink, I stamped around one edge. 2015-01-06 18.04.06Using a white Molotow marker and a white Uni-Ball Signo I added a few doodles. 2015-01-06 18.05.28Next, I gave my tag a few splatters of Golden Fluid Acrylic in White Titanium and set it aside to dry. 2015-01-06 17.53.48 Using StazOn again, I stamped a bold flower stamp and an arrow stamp onto old book paper. The stamps are from Paperbag Studios. The two that I used are from Roben-Marie’s Media Essentials #1 set and Rae’s Missigman’s Natural Elements set. 2015-01-06 18.02.17 2015-01-06 18.13.39After cutting them out, I glued them to my tag and used a Stabilo Marks All and a water brush to go around the edges and make them pop. 2015-01-06 18.18.02Next, I took the tag to my sewing machine a gave it a little wonky stitching around the edges. 2015-01-06 18.21.59I added a few more doodles, used a “Scratches” stamp from Darkroom Door to add a bit more texture, looped a bit of Sari silk ribbon through the hole and finished it off by adding my word for the year. 2015-01-06 18.24.572015-01-06 18.25.18 2015-01-06 18.29.26 2015-01-06 18.24.322015-01-06 18.27.35Thank you for looking, I hope you found the post of value. Wishing you a wonderful and art filled week!
