Turning Over a New Leaf - Tando Creative


Hi! I'm sharing my project for the Tag theme this week on the Tando Design Blog. I had a lot of fun with gesso, acrylic paint, a favorite stamp, book pages, and masking tape when building up and coloring the background of my tag.


I painted a Tall Leaf with the same supplies I used for the tag background. As I was adding the leaf to the finished tag, it was blending with the background a little too much, so I decided to turn the leaf over and have the less busy underside facing up. I'm figuratively and literally turning over a new leaf with this piece!


Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies: Tag: Avery; Chipboard: Tando Creative; Flowers: Prima; Leaf: Prima; Stamp: 100 Proof Press; Gesso: Golden; Acrylic Paint: Liquitex; Ink: Ranger; Marker: Sharpie; Other: Seam Binding, Thread, Book Page, Masking Tape
