Extra Large Mixed Media Blue & Ochre Tag..


The current colour scheme of the PaperArtsy Challenge is so Alluring, I was inspired from the onset by Chris Cresswell and her Art Journal spread. With the element of surprise behind the doors and Chris's attention to detail; something close to my heART.. I just had to create something using those given colours of Blue and Ochre.

Here in words and pictures is my creation...


For my surface I used an Extra Large Tag (147mm x 296mm) by Dali Art. 
I squeezed a blob of Midnight Blue, Indian Turquoise, True Ochre and Yellow Ochre Americana Acrylic paint randomly onto it. The paint was spread over the surface from side to side with a piece of card and marks made into the paint using a comb to create some texture.


IndigoBlu Super Thick Slapiton was pushed through a Dina Wakley Stencil.


I Stamped Kim Dellow EKD06 stamps with versafine and coloured with pencils and illustrator Pens, some of the flowers I cut, shaped and layered to change their dimension.
I chose a selection of lace, ribbon and Sari border to coordinate with the colour way and used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber to tone down the whiteness of the lace.


After the Lace, Ribbon and Sari border had been adhered to the tag I used *Deep Blue and Sicilian Yellow Inktense pencils to add light and shade to areas of the tag adding water over the pencil areas to make the ink permanent.


Flat back pearls, micro beads and wire all add to the detail.


With Glossy accents and white  Posca Pen helping to highlight the finer details 
my mixed media tag is complete.


I've really enjoyed gathering colour coordinating materials and piecing together this mixed media Tag . I hope you like my creation and entry into The PaperArtsy Colour Challenge Topic 5: Blue and Ochre

Wishing you a wonderful day what ever you are up too..
