Film Strip Fun

Hello to you all, Jennie here and welcome to my first project this month. 

With drama being a great passion of mine I fell in love with Andy Skinner's Old Film Mask the minute I saw it! So here is it's first outing.

I started off with a blank gessoed tag and added some tissue tape and then used the bottom part of the stencil and crackled medium to create the layered film strip look. (Don't you just love that inky fingerprint !! - not ....)

When dry (and I always let cracke dry naturally) I sprayed the tag with Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans Distress Spay Stain giving a really heavy burst in the middle of the tag. Amazingly this dried disappointingly light by the time I had finished my tag.

I then used the top part of the stencil to create a little bit of texture on the top of the tag - I used both Faded Jeans and Vintage Photo Distress Ink but it really is quite light and again dried even lighter!

Then I added a little stamping - and my apologies that the stamps I have used are not in the shop, but hopefully soon (Andy Skinner's Chateau).

By the time I woke the next morning the inks had dried quite light so I added a vial label and some rub ons.

And finally .... a little collage using one of my favourite Photo Booth photos.

A neat little masculine tag which I think would be good to recreate in a card for a male family member.

Thank you for joining me today!

Happy Crafting!
