Sea Witch

For some beautiful summer inspiration go check out Tim's July tag.   I had none of the supplies he used so I wandered off the path a little and created a sea witch in a grotto.


 It was really hard to get a photo to show the cool effect of the background with my sea-witch perching in her blend of sea-weed.


 My tag is an acetate tag embossed, painted, splattered with paint, water, and alcohol inks.   You name it it was applied.

I tamped the image on tissue paper and used decoupage to add her to the tag base.  That made her translucent. I added highlights and a layer of paint around the edges to blend her in.  I wanted texture for my sea-weed and ended up die cutting flowers, and branches from tissue paper and cardstock.  I painted them to coordinate and layered them around the edges.  Along the bottom is a new product from Stampendous which will be released at the end of the week and I love them. It is a pre-mixed jar of mica and glitters.  I mixed in a little shabby pink embossing enamel.  Tim's sand mixture was very cool and you should go see how he mixed it up.

That's all for me!  Have a wonderful Thursday!

  15. I absolutely love your take on Tim's July tag! Using a sea witch & making her translucent was the perfect touch as she searches for something among the colored jewels in the sand... The new mica/glitter mixture is stunning & made beautiful jewels in the sand. Awesome tag!

  16. The background or "sea weed" as you call it, is just plain old fantastic. It is more like a "sea fairy garden" than a week. And the sand with the glitter, WOW...just so pretty. Not sure how much it uses the techniques Tim is highlighting this month but it sure is spectacular. And unique...really refreshingly unique. Thank you so much for sharing it with everyone.
