'Find Happiness' Tag - 7 Dots Studio Challenge





Check out my Christmas Giveaways HERE.


Hi again, time to share my take on the new 7 Dots Challenge HERE.


The theme this month is TEXTURE so I concentrated on that 
& loaded up this little tag full of lots of tactile dimension.  


This is what I had to say on the 7 Dots Studio blog.  


"I decided to create a tag for my “Texture” project this month, so I could really play around & experiment!I used black archival ink to shade all over an oversized manila postal tag , stamped it with “Illumination” collection background stamps then added an abstract gesso base. I followed with some masking using texture paste & some light misting, then finished if off with layers of Illumination patterned paper off-cuts & tags mixed in with co-ordinating chipboard, muslin & metallic thread. Total textural overload! Yummy!!"

I hope you will play along with the 7 Dots Studio TEXTURE CHALLENGE.

You can create ANYTHING for this challenge - as long as it showcases your
artistic abilities as well as some 7 Dots Studio Products.
