Tag Book

Morning everyone, hope you are all well.

Today I am showcasing a Tag Book, which is a workshop I will be teaching on 14th-16th May 2021, start time 10am. If you are unable to join live, you can watch at your convenience. The workshop is £20 and if you would like to join, please feel free to email me - tracy@craft-addicts.co.uk. 

I adore the colours on this book and all the layers and textures. I created all the backgrounds with paint.

Each of these pictures shows the detail on each page. The colours are so uplifting.






I will definitely be working with these colours again, they work so well.



These are all the stamps showcased in my accordion, all from my new March release.

Happy Dog

Morning everyone, hope you are all well.

Toaday I have a card using my newly released A7 Stamp, Happy Dog.

I love the colours on this piece. I stamped the background using my Snippet Alphabet #456 and Distress Oxide Inks. I used the stamp as a whole, stamping without the use of an acrylic block, to give me more of a mixed media feel and look.

I also incorporated some cheesecloth and cotton threads to give further texture to my pieces.

The heart has been stamped with my Heart Grunge Stamp, a new favourite #453. I love how there are so many elements on the stamp that can be used individually.

I added a touch of shading with an Inktense pencil and coloured my litle dog with Polychromo Pencils.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
