Van Gogh Inspirational Tag Art
I am madly in love with creating little works of art with inspirational quotes. Art nourishes the heart and soul. I like to fill my home with uplifting reminders, and I love to make art-a match made in heaven! For this Van Gogh inspired piece, I chose colors that were reminded me of Starry Night. When I focus on the art of playing and exploring with layers and layers of textures and colors, I find myself embracing the happy accidents playing creates! The Crafter's Workshop stencils and ink sprays are the perfect artsy combo to create a fantastic background base! You'll begin to see areas in your background that you'd like to grow a bit, and then the sky is the limit! The mini tatting stencil is one of my absolute favorites, I created a kind of doily look by spraying Dylusions white linen ink spray through it, onto the rich background, of blue, purple and turquoise. Then I stamped the front (inky)side of the stencil randomly on other parts of the tag (I don't like to waste any of that inky goodness!) Next I took the Oblong stencil by TCW and spread some silver Inka Gold Metallic Rub through it to add some shimmer, shine and dimension. I could see the perfect spots for a little more dimension, the centers of the flowery edge of the 'doily' I dug into my stash and found some purple and blue Dew Drops (love them-not sure if they even make them any more!) and added them with some Glossy Accents-perfection! Lastly I added a favorite Van Gogh quote (and good reminder ) and a cluster of funky ribbons from my stash-Taa Daa!!!! I hope that you will gather some art materials and play today! Focus on the doing and make something cool today!
