One of the annoying things about being creative is that once in a while you lose your mojo, your ambition, your courage... Big changes tend to do that to me and I haven't been motivated much lately. I finally sat down to checking my Bloglovin account and getting caught up and noticed a few that are no longer posting for various reasons and decided to unfollow them. Then I realised Hey! That could be me! I do love to share and blog and this epiphany was the kick in the pants I needed. Thank you to the ladies I do follow!
So Here is a project I completed at the end of June for a girlfriend I care for very much.
I have been participating in a tag challenge at a local store this year and some of the tags were sent to my girlfriend as a birthday present. I created some more to add to them and made a year round hanging decoration... Here are the January and February tags:
The January tag was truly made just for her...
I started with a spraying ink through a snowflake stencil. Let dry.
Took a second stencil and used clear embossing paste over top the first pattern. Let dry.
StazOn ink was used to stamp the greeting in the bottom right.
I stamped two copies of the mandala image by Outlines Rubber Stamps in StazOn and accented with silver pen. I cut off the last three layers off one stamped image then layered the rest at an angle over a whole mandala. I then took the cut off edges, flipped them and attached to the outside edge to look more snowflake-like. I used pop dots to adhere the centre portion.
I'll be posting more of her tags in the next couple weeks.
Hope you enjoy and hope you still wish to follow me!
Happy Thanksgiving from this Canadian!
