Rebecca over at the new Tag Tuesday challenge really got creative this week! Her challenge is to recycle the trash! Yep, use things out of the garbage to make your tag this week. Here is my tag ...
I actually took the tag out of the trash because I'd started something and didn't like it, and it was inked black on the edges and kind of crinkled up. I finished inking the whole front, then added a layer of white tacky glue. Then I added an old, used, washed, then dried again fabric softener sheet, and tore it into pieces. It had spider web looking bits, so I knew - okay, spider's web, and kept tearing and layering bits and pieces as long as the glue would allow.
While the glue was wet I sprinkled on some silver German glass glitter, and it gives a really neat effect. Next I stuck on two SRM Stickers - one says 'creepy' and the other is a spider. I still wanted something kind of creepy, so I mixed red, yellow, blue and green food coloring with rubbing alcohol, put it into a small spray bottle and sprayed it onto the whole thing., and then dried it with a heat embossing gun. The labels curled up (which is what I wanted), and the white shows from under the stickers. It's so not me, but I really love how it turned out!
It felt good to be creating again!
The next few weeks are going to be really crazy, because the next 2 weekends I have craft shows, and I'm totally not ready, but I'll get done what I can, and the rest will just have to not get done! I hope to be back soon with another project! Blessings, Becky
