Catch a falling star by Sanderijn de Bruin-Mittendorff

I made two tags with a combination of Dreamscapes and Hazy Days collections. I loved creating these tags. They are easy to make, and you will get a gorgeous result. I made them to give away as a gift. With the stencil patterns and word stickers, they get a 3 dimensional outcome, which I love to create.

I made a little step by step tutorial for you:
Step 1 : Cover the tags with a layer of clear gesso.

Step 2 : Add stencil pattern with modelling paste and a palette knife and let dry.

Step 3 : When the paste is dry, add several layers of Lindy’s sprays (or similar coloured sprays) over the tags, dry them with a heattool.

Step 4 : Paint your chipboard pieces with acrylic paint and dabber tool. Add a little bit of the white paint on the tags too.

Step 5 : Spray your chipboard pieces with the sprays as well. Add a new layer to the tags too, if desired.

Step 6 : When the tags are dry, sew them onto another piece of 6 x 6 paper with a sweing machine.

Step 7 : Add your chipboard, flowers, embellishments, etc. Finish with sequins and some custum made coloured ribbon.

Special by Sanderijn de Bruin-Mittendorff

Hi everybody,
Today I want to show you my newest layout, made with the gorgeous Dreamscapes collection. The picture I used, says a thousend words…my little girl, looking a little bit rebellious, but still being the sweetest ever. I want her to know how special she is to me. I hope she never looses her twinkle in her eyes, and will always pursuit her dreams.

First, I primed my paper with clear gesso, and then I used the geometric stencil on the paper. I used a different technique this time: I added white gesso on the stencil, on just a piece of old paper, and then I laid my stencil on the actual paper, and used a clean palette knife to go over it. This way I got a real subtle background design, which you can see in the close up picture. I added some Lindy’s spray, to give the background just a little bit more color, and splattered the ink here and there. Then I stamped with the clear stamp from Homegrown collection, and embossed it with embossing powder. I used tags, flowers, cheese cloth, and some feathers to build op my page. I painted my chipboard wings and title and glued them down. I used Lindy’s spray also on my word sticker, before adding it to the wings. Some white acrylic paint splatters and my page is finished!

Thank you for watching!
Love, Sanderijn
