A Little Dylusion
is very good for the creative soul! This was the make-n-take Carolyn taught Saturday, during her March Make-n-Take Madness event at The Crafty Scrapper. And since I took my tag home to finish it I decided to accent mine with a little bit of Diamond Stickles, Self Adhesive Pearls, Perfect Pearls Mist and Glossy Accents. I gotta say, I love creating with Dyan Reaveley’s fun and quirky styled Dylusions products. It was fun creating so far out of my style. You will be seeing more in the future for sure.
And since I finished my tag at home I thought I would show you a few step by steps so you can make one for yourself. Of course I got the okay from Carolyn to share it since it is her make-n-take design.
The first thing Carolyn had use do was attach a piece of vintage book paper to the tag using Glue N Seal. Side note for Carolyn, you need to guard that book better I’m not trustworthy. Once the book page was attached we just started using any Dylusions ink sprays we wanted. I have no clue which ones I used as I was just grabbing and spraying with and without Dylusions stencils. Then we dried it just a bit with the heat gun and stamped any of the Dylusions background stamps we wanted. I’m telling you it was a BLAST!
I added a little sparkle to my tag at home using Ranger’s Sunflower Sparkle & Biscotti Perfect Pearls Mist.
After we stamped the girl image onto white cardstock I colored her in using the new Tim Holtz Distress Markers. Since I was going to cut the image out using a craft knife I did not worry about getting out of the lines a bit.
At home, I added a few Self Adhesive Pearls, Diamond Stickles and Glossy Accents. I’m sure it is no surprise about me adding Pearls and Diamond Stickles. Since I was going to cut my girl out with my craft knife, to get rid of a few bubbles that appeared when putting the Glossy Accents onto the stripes on her tights I just pulled the Glossy Accents past the stamped image.
Once the Glossy Accents was dry I placed the stamped girl image onto a craft mat, then using a craft knife cut out the entire image.
I stitched around the tag using cream thread and my sewing machine set on a straight stitch setting. Then using scallop scissors I trimmed the side right and top edges of the tag. I then attached the girl onto the tag using foam squares. I like the dimension foam squares create.
The saying is supposed to go along the right side of the tag and well the wings go on the girls back. Once I get these I will take another photo to show you. Some how I lost them on my way home. This tag was so much fun to make, seriously SO MUCH FUN!
Thanks, Carolyn for such a fun make-n-take and thanks for letting me share it with all my blog readers.
