Hallo There!

I don't know why I called this
thread Springtime -must be
wishful thinking!  

You never know, by the time 
this project is published it
may well be spring........
meantime it is bitter cold
and I was not made for
bitter cold.................don't
suppose you were either

To take us into a springlike
state, here's Helen Chilton
with a gorgeous tag

"For this tag I'm using Distress Crayons, which
I really love. They have one distinct advantage
 over Gelatos - if you heat them with a heatgun, 
they will dry, not remain tacky. 

This means you can stamp over them easily
 and add more colour over the top 
without it being contaminated by
 the colour beneath.

I've painted the tag with a thin layer
 of clear medium - any varnish or sealer will do.
 It helps the crayons blend.

Scribble on your colours.

Blend with your fingers.

Stencil over with a baby wipe.

take out a bit of extra colour where you're
 going to stamp.

Stamp the art stamps, heat set and add 
extra crayon over the top. 
Layer onto cardboard and add fibres and beads.

 Very quick and easy to make."

That was a treat of a project
Helen.  Many thanks for the
tips on using the DI Crayons too

If you are interested in adding
Distress Crayons to your stash
they are currently on offer at
a reduced price at 
head on over and grab
a bargain

'Till tomorrow
