Linda's Tag #11 this week is all silvery and uses metal. I took a little detour and tried my own way of creating a similar effect. (sponsored by her Funkie Junkie Boutique) I loved how elegant and industrial the foil looked on Linda's tag. I am also entering this into the Artistic Outpost Monthly challenge.
I started with white cardstock which I applied a layer of white gesso and while it was wet I attached a series of cardboard snowflakes and used gesso to paint them onto the tag. I let that thoroughly dry out. . (Just occurred to me I have black gesso and could have used that as a base. DUH!) I then applied a layer of black spray. That soaked in too much so I added a layer of black paint. After the paint I waited for it to dry and then sponged silver paint onto the snowflakes and used my fingers to smear it around the snowflakes.
Have a wonderful wednesday!
