Brayered Tag

Art washes away from the soul the dust of every day life. The quote on this tag is one of my favourites. I try to get out the inks and paints every evening, even if is it for just half an hour. It really gets me detached from my work.

The tag is inspired by the tag Ellen Vargo made on the Paperartsy blog. I used the same techniques to create my tag.


The background is made by brayering several layers of yellow, green and blue Fresco's. I used Haystack, Lime Light, Guacamole, Hey Pesto, Beach Hut, and Baltic Blue. I also added some red accents with London Bus.

The yellow dots are made with a stamp from HP1004. I used the Dylusions Luscious Leaves stencil with Grunge Paste and some Treasure Gold.
