A Little Dylusion

Apr 3, 2012

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.
