Another Tag Trio & An Angelic Canvas: DT post for Scrapmatts

I told everyone last month to be on the lookout for more
Junk-It Tags and true to form that's what you get this month...

My second project is an Angelic Winged Heart Canvas that I

did for my fabulously wacky friends birthday.

And as an added bonus this month because Scrapmatts have

sponsored CSI Challenge 233 and after assessing all the evidence
my interpretation can be seen at the end of this post...

Cupids & Chevrons Junk-It Tag Trio

The beauty about these tags is that the Scrapmatts 1000 series stencils
seem to be a perfect match in size and with a vast selection
to chose from and no end to the look you can create.
If you are looking for something a bit larger then look no further
because the lovely duo that is Sofie & Andrew have
created A4 - A5 & A6 to cover all our projects.
Otherwise, yet again this "Junk-It" style is as easy as applying
some texture paste over these stencils and
spraying with a colour suitable to whatever you have gathered
up off your desk from past projects...
You know the ones!!! The bits that never quite got put back away...

From here it is as easy as positioning the bits evenly over the tags
and digging through your stash (of carefully organised and categorised container) of Scrapmatts chippies to the pretty it up...

ST1009 Paint Drips

All other items that where floating about my craft table that
were separated into
3 piles as a kind of chaos inspiration project…

Angelic Winged Heart Canvas

Where does a person start...
OK...In to the repurposing pile I go again for an old frame
and glue in a canvas board.
The dark background is simply some black gesso to help outline
all the wild and wonderful embellishments and
Chippies that were to adorn it. 

Before anything else could go down the stencils were laid and coloured.

The task then of centering the heart and attaching the wings
and leaving it to properly dry before continuing

I had to add a Happy Birthday and a flower for the occasion
and it was job done...

With the scene centred around summer relaxing I thought
it appropriate to incorporate the outdoors...
The subtleness of the 5 colours was difficult to confine myself to

but managed to remain true to them and although green is
not normally one of my favourite colours enjoyed its addition to
this case file.

As well as being able to incorporate a few of
Scrapmatts Chipboards and Stenciling I managed to tick off
more than the minimum pieces of evidence.
Layering/stacking started with the use of the A5 Bricks stencil.

No Scrapmatts project would be complete for me if it didnt
have some form of stencil and adding colour on top of them
always makes them shine.
Here I also faded out the carnation pink
whilst letting some other elements spill into it.

Documenting the moment was incorporated as a border

The product list was a variable one set only by the limitations
of the Case File but apart from that we were free to
use our own crafting style
