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