A while ago my good friend Dede showed, on her ustream show, how she puts together a list of colours to use as prompts when she feels lacking in inspiration.
We all scribbled down on scraps of paper the colours she read out.
After the show, I looked at this little pile of square pieces of paper, with hurried writing on them, and thought well they look crap!!! I a not going to have them allover the place, they will drive me insane...they need to be pretty.
So this is what I did...
I ripped up some sheets of paper, popped the into a cardboard box and sprayed them with inks..both sides, several colours.
I then used a sizzix die to cut out a whole bunch of tags.
Next I got out all these foam stamps that my friend Mitzi had sent to me.
I used the stamps and a load of acrylic paints to stamp all over the tags, using the paint really thick to create texture. You can see how many I had on the go, they were all over the place...and I decorated them both sides.
