Altered Tag by Stephanie Papin

Hello everyone!  Today, I’m sharing with you one of the last tags I’ve made for this month. In my country (France), we say that we have all the month of January to send happy new year wishes. So it’s  yet  again time to prepare some other tags!

This January color palette is very sweet, and I like to work with colors like these a lot.
Obviously, I used the kit of the month to illustrate this color palette :
January 2015 Color Challenge
 
I started with a collage of coordinated papers. I covered my collage with gel medium, and then with gesso, and from here I’ve begun to play with  the inks.
By using colors at different times, and by over layering them,  you obtain beautiful gradients of color.
I really like Lindy’s colors. They are so special, and each one to me is absolutely magnificent! Look at this beautiful light purple!

I leave you to have a look at my video, to discover how I’ve used the color sprays here. It’s really easy and very interesting at the same time. Everyone can do it!


Supplies used :
 January 2015  Color Challenge
Midnight Rendezvous Raven Starbust
– Don’t Eat Golden Snow Starbust (found in the Winter Wonderland Set)
Jarry Jivin’ Purple starbust
– Cape Cod Coral starbust
Tea Pot Purple starbust

I hope you like this idea, and enjoyed the video.
See you all back here soon!
