Follow Your Dreams

Today I have an Etcetera Tag decorated using my A4 Layered Grunge Set combined with Olga's Patches Stamp Set from AALLandCreate. A list of our stockists can be found HERE.
I began by painting my tag with a coat of Gesso, drying with a Heat Tool and then applying a layer of Cheddar Acrylic Paint to my base. I dried this layer of paint with my Heat Tool.
I then cut out a heart from scrap paper and used the aperture and drew around the heart shape onto my tag. I added the hearts randomly to the background. I also added highlights of Fuchsia Paint to the background, applying with a Brayer, using only a light touch to apply the paint.
I painted around each of the hearts with Turquoise Paint and again dried with my Heat Tool. To highlight the hearts further I drew around each one with a Stabilo All Pencil and then blended with a touch of water.
I added some background stamping to the tag using my A4 Layered Grunge Stamp and also added highlights of colour to the background. Adding the paint to a piece of scrap card and doing a mono print to add just light layers of paint.
I added stamping to each of the hearts, using both my A4 stamp set and Olga's set.
I love all the layers of paint and stamping combined. I also included some delicate splatters of white paint.

These are the products used in my piece.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy xx

I just love the colour combo Tracy (I bought those colours after seeing you use them a while back) and the Fuchsia touches really do lift the colours. A wonderful design too! Hugs, Anne xx
