Christmas Tags by Lynne Forsythe

I whipped up some tags to adorn the 
presents I'll be putting under the tree!

I began my creative journey by coloring the tags with 
Distress Oxides.

Believe in yourself

Hello everyone,

Today I have made an artjournal for you. I must say I really love the Um Wow Chipboards because they are so sturdy. They stand up to a lot of abuse....

I have also used some (very old) design paper, a paper doll, some lace, paint and fabric for this page. The chipboard was embellished like this :

First I tool the scissors to it as I didn't like the straight edges so I did some trimming. Once I was happy I pressed my VersaMark ink pad onto the chipboard and sprinkled all three colours embossing powder onto it and melted them. 

This is how it came out, quite nice but I decided to sand some of the shine off and get some of the chipboard out again. 

This is the finished result and I really love it.  

A couple of close - ups ...

You can see where the chipboard is peeking through again. 

And this is the finished page ! 

I hope I have inspired you to dust off the chipboards and use them too ! Maybe even to make a card or something ! They are so versatile. 

You will find the Damaged Punchinella background I used HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !

It's my life

Hello everyone,

and welcome to another project made with the lovely UmWow Chippies...
I have made an art journal page today and this is what it looks like :

And here's what I did with the chipboards:

I glued some of the Square Confetti pieces on a piece of Mixed Media Paper and gave them a coat of gesso. 

Next I added some model paste through this UmWow Stencil. 

This is what that looked like. 

Next paint. I used Titan Buff and Translucent Yellow Iron Oxide by Deco Art. 

Here's the result. I thinned the yellow down a little with water, applied it to the page and then spritzed it with water to get drips. 

Next some Stabilo pencil to grunge it up a little... 

Love the result... 

And here is the finished page. I added some stamping and the main image was stamped on tissue paper and adhered with gel medium. I doodled around the edges of the page with a grey fine liner and that finished my project. 

You can find the Square Confetti HERE

Thank you for stopping by today !
