AALL & Create Project 2

Hello Friends

I am pleased to share with you my second project for AALL & Create, a large tag.  Autumn is one of my favourite seasons and Tracy Evans' gorgeous large flower reminds me of my favourite Autumn sunflowers which are still in abundance at the moment

The products I used from AALL&Create are:  A4 Stamp #109, by Tracy Evans, Stamp #6 by Tracy Evans, Stamp #45 by Tracy Evans and Stencil #39 by Autour de Mwa.  These are available from a list of suppliers HERE.

I started by covering a tag with gesso and then a random coat of crackle paint.
Once dry I gave the tag a coat of rusty colour paint, followed by a layer of blue and let this dry.  I lightly sanded the top so that some of the rusty colour would show through.
Next, I stamped the flower onto tissue paper, cut it out and painted it from the back with acrylic paint.

I attached the flower to the tag, stamped a second centre and raised it up with some silicone and used one of Tracy's trademark designs - thread, to add another texture.
I added a butterfly from one of Tracy's earlier release of stamps and used a clock hand as a body.
I always like to add charms to chunkier tags, I stamped the flower onto shrink plastic, coloured it with markers and then shrank it down, it makes a lovely sized charm.
Here is another look at the completed tag again, where you can see the stencilling I did on each side using AALL & Create Stencil #39 to tie my elements together, and the sentiment I added.

Thanks so much for your visit, as always, I appreciate your comments.  I hope to see you again next week, if not before, if I can fit in a Halloween project.

Hugs, Anne xx

  5. Beautiful! I love this set of Tracy's! Your colour choice really does the job!! The flower charm is just the perfect addition! Hugs,Chrisx

  6. So very lovely Anne. Fantastic range of techniques to illustrate the fab stamps and stencil. It must have been very tricky to do that stem on tissue paper and yet its perfect! Love the dangles too. Nicola x

  7. A wonderful flower to be inspired by Anne, you've picked out those colours of the sunflower perfectly. The addition of the clock hand upon the Butterfly is genius, a favourite set of mine. I'm so impressed with your shrink plastic flower Anne, not an easy shape to cut out.. looks stunning as an embellishment.
    Thank you for sharing another fabulous creation, it's like Spring has come early.

  8. What a stunning tag Anne!! The colours are so vibrant and the texture is awesome! So enjoyed seeing how you put it all together and love the different techniques used. Thank you for sharing! hugs xx

  9. Gorgeous tag with some unexpected details, like the reverse painting on tissue. It looks amazing! The shrink plastic tag is so sweet, and again, a real treat! I really love the delicate dots stenciled in white--perfect touch! Can't wait to see your Halloween project! Hugs!

    1. PS I really had to comment on that butterfly--she just pops right off the tag--beautiful colors!

  10. What a brilliant project Anne, and you've accesorised it beautifully with your charm, it really is your finishing touch. Have a lovely weekend, Sue xx

  11. This is brilliant, Annie! Love the colors, the stencils, the butterfly and how you created that tissue flower! The ribbon and charms are cool elements, especially how you made the flower out of shrink plastic. I haven't done that in ages!! ❤Hugs, Darnell xxoo

  12. Gorgeous - I love the rusty blues of the background, and how the petals of the flower pop, even though they're in quite a soft yellow. A delightful tag.

  13. Ooh Anne, another stunner! I adore the colours and the gorgeous sunflower looks amazing! Love how you have used tissue paper - it looks seamless and really pops against the wonderful background. The beautiful butterfly is a wonderful addition too - I love Tracy's stamps and your design is perfect for them! I always forget to say that I also adore your charms, they always look awesome! Hugs xxxxxxxx

  14. As I've said before, so many times, your thought process while creating just amazes me. That you can realize what to do with different products, supplies - that it would work to do 'thus & so'. Then you have the skills to make imagination into reality. This is another stunning look, and using the tissue for the flower petals...I would never know what to do with these stamp sets, but you've made another artistic masterpiece. You can have the end of summer all winter long! Loved the red hanging charm too! TFS & Hugs

  15. Anne, you truly rock everything you make, in my opinion! This is gorgeous! and you make it look simple to do, but I don't believe just anyone can create, the same way you do! You gotta going!
    sending hugs,Jackie
