Hello my bloggy friends!
I am in a very pleasant mood today! My whole family is getting together after a long long time! I have been waiting for this day since long..almost a year! I just couldn't sleep in excitement to meet my sisters. So what could be better than some giving myself crafty time :)
Here is small project I worked on today.. A tag. This is one of my very favourite styles.. Grunge.
I love it but don't try it often. This is the second grunge project I have made in these 2 years!
Have a look.
click on the pics to have a better view.
I have used some prima stationers desk pattern paper for the strips and the dream sentiment. The background paper is also from Prima stationers desk. I used Vintage photo, walnut stain and black soot distress ink to get this look.
Used Kaiserkraft stamp and crafters workshop stencil.
I applied gesso on the metal embellishments and then inked them with alcohol ink in ginger, caramel etc. colours. basically earthy tones.
I used a chain from an old handbag. I am using this in bits and pieces.. I avoid buying stuff I can easily find at home. Up-cycling and reusing things gives me so much satisfaction! The beads you see are from a old Dupatta ( A traditional Indian wear). it was quite old.. and the weak thread broke I was more than happy! :D
I have also used some crackle paint on the strips of paper and feather. Some diamond dust and glitter balls as well to add to the textures. Used some embroidery thread beneath the DREAM sentiment.
Hope you liked it.
