Sparkly Christmas Tag Set – Finnabair Art Recipe
Hi lovely friends,
it’s time for a new Finnabair Art Recipe!
You can find all the fabulous projects on Prima blog
For today’s Art Recipe I decided to create a tag set. Shabby chic with a touch of vintage, these tags are trying to reflect my love for Christmas.
I created the textured background using a generous coat of Snowflake Paste. When this layer was dry, I applied Clear Crackle Texture Paste in a few spots and, while still wet, I sprinkled my favourite Art Stones and Mini Art Stones to suggest drifts of glistening snow. I left everything to dry overnight allowing the crackles to develop naturally. This way they will be perfect!
For my centre I created a small collage using different small pieces of fabric, lace and cardboard that I glued down with Soft Gloss Gel and then added a bit of stitching using a sewing machine. I attached the composition with 3D Gel Gloss. To add hints of colour to my tags and to enhance the gorgeous crackles I used Mica Powders and Art Alchemy Paints.
When the paint was dry I brushed some Heavy White Gesso to tone down the colours a bit and bring back the snowy feel. I created the focal point by wrapping some wire around a chipboard shape, covered everything with Heavy White Gesso and then painted it.
As a finishing touch I added some magic Christmas sparkle using different Glitter sets and tiny Mechanicals Star brads. Did you know you can make your custom coloured glitter paste? Just mix the colours you love, add some Soft gloss gel and then apply with a soft brush. Just the perfect touch!
