I hope you all had a fab weekend?
I went to a class taught by Dyan Reaveley (creator of the Dylusions range) yesterday, it was fab! We were each given an art journal and spent the morning learning how to make backgrounds with the dylusions sprays, and how to add depth with stencils. I was inspired by Dyan's samples to make this tag.....
All the stamps are Dylusions, except the Live, Laugh, Love, which is a Visible Image freebie on this month's Craft Stamper magazine. The class was held at The Artistic Stamper shop in Faversham, Kent, and the owner, Jennie, now stocks all the Dylusions stamps and stencils, I could have spent a fortune in there yesterday!!
Here are some pictures of the backgrounds we made in our journals....
We learnt how to use the 'ghosting' technique, and used positive and negative stencil images with light and dark coloured ink to add depth to the page.
I hope you like the tag. Thank you for visiting my blog, and big hugs if you leave me a comment! ;) xxx
PS - I'm entering this tag in the Make it Monday blog! and Artistic Inspirations challenge, stitching, real or faux.xx
