Sketch week - Gio

Scrapbooking on a giant tag is how Gio chose to approach the sketch this week. Scrapbooking along with cardmaking are probably the way sketches are used the most. Scrapbooking on a giant tag is a change from the traditional 12x12 page. 
Hope you like it. 

 I cut a giant tag from a sheet of Grungeboard basics plain. 
I covered it partially with some PaperArtsy Grunge Paste with a palette knife. 
When still wet, I stamped with a flower stamp from Hot Picks 1206 plate to create some texture. When dry I swiped on the surface the Distress Inks Distress Ink pad: Salty ocean and Distress Ink pad: Seedless Preserve and I gessoed lightly. 
I stamped some flowers using the same stamps and Ranger Archival Ink pad: Deep Purple. Using an applicator and the Distress Ink, I added the eye chart with the The Crafters Workshop template - Eye Chart. 
I adhered some pieces of tissue tape and I stamped the date and placed using Stampendous Small Typewriter Alphabet and Ranger Archival Ink pad: Deep purple. 
I cut from the very printed sketch the little frames, I coloured , stamped and used them to frame the pictures. 
I added the frames to the tag along with ribbons and some self-adhesive pearls

Gio used:
Tim Holtz embellishments: Tissue Tape Journeyman  

See you tomorrow
