It’s that time of the month again….and for February the Smeared and Smudged members have been challenge to create something with the theme of ‘Cracked and Broken’. If you are following the blog hop you will have arrived here from Black Dragon and your next stop is Shell. The full blog roll is below:
I have chosen to make a tag with a beautiful image from The East Wind called Broken Doll.
The tag is one of my Dylusions ‘mop ups’. I don’t like to waste the overspray on my non-stick mat when I’ve been doing my journal pages, so I always keep a stack of tags handy for mopping up the ink. Sometimes they look a bit muddy, sometimes they look really colourful – they are all useful additions to my stash, just waiting for some extra embellishment.
I used a black fineliner to draw through a criss-cross patterned stencil, then filled in with a black marker (to create the negative of the stencil). I then added the words with an alphabet stencil and a white gel pen.
I coloured the Broken Doll image with Promarkers then fussy cut. I used some Scattered Straw Distress Stickles on her hair for extra interest. I attached it to the tag with Pinflair gel glue to add dimension. A few fibres through the hole at the top added the finishing touch.
Please take the time to look at all the amazing projects that the others have made, there is always plenty of inspiration to be had.
