Alright, so here we are, tag number 12....
This whole project has been a great process for me, and has been hugely helped by all your wonderful comments and support! Many of you kept saying that you didn't think I had lost my mojo, the thing is, I really did.... right now it comes and goes, but I think that's normal. You see I think the thing with mojo is, it's all about how you feel, and not about the outcome of your projects...
Anyway, part of this project was experimenting with colour and texture, in some of the tags it was more about texture, in this one it was more about colour.
The main stamp is the Blazing Poppies by Indigoblu. I first saw this stamp used on the blog of the wonderful Paula Whittaker, and was so inspired that it went straight to the top of my wishlist. She has made several other projects with it since, - check them out, they are amazing!!
Anyway, here is my play with it. The background was inked with Wild Honey, Bundled Sage and Crushed Olives Distress Inks. I used the Crafters Workshop Chicken Wire and Chicken Wire reversed stencil, because they remind me of honey combs. The bees stamps are from Tim Holtz and the little butterfly at the top is from a Just Rite set. The emellishment at the top that was bright silver to start with was treated with numerous EPs and paints until it had a suitable rusty look, and the sentiment was computer generated.
Here are some close ups still:
Well, there you have it. Again, thank you so much for all your support during this project. I still have a new cover to do, but think I will give this project a bit of a break for just now.
Here finally you can see a picture of all 12 tags together:
Thank you so much for visiting and have a great week!
