A Winter’s Wonder Tag & BIG Sale News!

Hi Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy weekend to you all! We’re already a couple of weeks into January, and I am still no closer to reaching my New Year’s goal of a regular blogging schedule again. Creativation (CHA) projects have been keeping me busy in the background, and I have been soaking up as much family time as I’ve been able this past month with both my kiddos and parents here visiting. So once again I’ve not much new to share at the moment… but I do have a few projects from Creativation 2017 still waiting in the archives to share, like this winter wonders tag I made for the Ranger Ink booth.

The focus here was on Distress Markers, which I used to create the free-hand funky plaid in the background of this Ranger Ink #8 manila tag. I selected brown and green markers for a natural woodland look, and used both the thick and thin tips of the pens to create a variety of lines in different widths… using a ruler for part of the design, and just winging the rest. To tone down the colors, the tag was heavily doused with water and blotted dry. Softens the design so it can fade into the background. Added die cut winter greens and some real mini pine cones I managed to find on a trip to the mountains last year.Β  Added a Sizzix sentiment and Clippings sticker, too.

Creativation is now less than a week away, so that means new products and new projects are coming soon! But until then, I’ve got some great deals and fun news to share with you!

  1. Oh my gosh, I thought you made those pinecones and I had to re-read to see they were real, lol. Either way, they are the perfect accent. Love your hand-drawn plaid, very clever. That minty machine is tempting me.

  2. Gorgeous tag, Audrey!! I thought the background was patterned paper! You did a fab job making the plaid background, so pretty! And, sweet little pine cones! I found some last fall. Thanks so much for the wonderful inspiration!!

  3. Absolutely beautiful Audrey! The background looks amazing and I love the foliage and fun little pinecones! Always so creative!!
    Hope you are having a wonderful start to 2018~Enjoy your time with your kiddos and parents πŸ™‚

  4. Well didn’t you get all creative with the markers to make that background. Fantastic! I really like those baby pinecones mixed with the die cuts. I’ve got a bunch of Creativation projects for Art Impressions to share soon. Isn’t fun to work on things you know will be displayed there. Hugs!
