Mixed Media Tag With Heartfelt Creation Supplies
Posted by Rajni Chawla
A very warm welcome again !!
If I am stressed, I make poor decisions, I get sick more easily, and I spread my stress to those around me. And if I m not wrong ,it is same for all. Fortunately, I am an artist and for me there are numerous ways to create some motivational tags and journal pages to get my stress back under controll, I read to myself whenever I'm feeling stressed. My craft, my passion is the way in which I apply paint to a project, how I think about a new composition or how I structure and write small sentences in a small story. To keep myself motivated I keep surrounding myself with small art pieces which have some inspirational messages that make me understand that soon everything will be fine. Northing is better if I am able to create them by my own. I keep creating small art pieces and display them in my craft area which really helps me moving in today's stressfull life.
The tag that I am sharing today has become one of my favourite creation that always keeps me motivated to share more.
"Be an opener of doors"
According to me it means to consider others and try to help them when you can, because we all need help sometimes.
I love this message and always feel more loved if I am able to help someone. Few days back when I saw one of my fellow crafter destashing the Floral Doorway and Latch Stamp by Heartfelt Creations on fb, I immediately booked it for me as Heartfelt Creations Floral Key Collection was my very very first buy of this brand and missed ordering this particular stamp and its Designer papers. I bought rest of the whole collection at that time but was not even known to its proper usage. I had something in my mind already and this stamp really gave me a kick to try it immediately. Here is my output.
I used some dry mech, a leaf spray from Dusty Attics, metal chain, texture paste and deeply scored cardstock [you can use corrugated sheet if you have ] to create all textures. I used the die-cuts from Heartfelt Creation Layered Elegant Swirls to extend a little platform to work on.
The door latch is stamped couple of times and fussy-cut in different layers, painted with Gathered Twigs, Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.
The flowers from the stamped image are also fussy-cut and layered. these are painted using Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemon Distress inks. For the background I used different shades of coffee by making different consistancies of coffee and water. more water less intense is the colour and less water more intense is the shade. Few shades of acrylic paints and silk glazefrom Colourarte were perfect for highlighting.
Then comes the little decoration part which I did with Mica flakes, micro beads and glitters. Here are few more close-ups to show all details.
