December tagalong


Today I'm sharing the last tag of the year for the challenge with Isa. The challenge was to use three elements or techniques from the ones used over the year. I went with crackle, sparkle and wings, and frame it.

I used reds and oranges on the base layer, followed by the crackle glaze when it was totally dry. I've found I get best results if I use a generous amount of glaze, apply it in one direction, don't go back over it and leave it to slowly air dry.

When the glaze was dry I went over it with contrasting colours and left it to dry slowly to maximise the cracks.

With the tag made it was easy to add the other elements...

 ...some stamping in the backgound and ink around the edges...a Giogiocraft frame coloured with Distress Oxide ink and gilding wax...the Katzelkraft butterfly designed by Isa... and a sentiment sticker...done.

For a bit of extra shimmer I used clear Wink of Stella on the wings. Finished the last tag of the year. 

I've had lots of fun with the group and the challenges. There isn’t going to be a group running next year but I am enormously grateful to Isa for the huge amount of time she gave and all the tips and techniques shared. 

Thank you for following along on my crafty adventures this year. Wishing you a Happy New Year and I look forward to hearing from you in 2023 xxx
