Good Wednesday morning. I would like to inviteyou to join me in the CLASSroom for day three of the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2014 for my Poinsettia Window Tag and and step by step tutorial.
I had so much fun making my window tag for this very special event that I decided I had to do another tag project for my post today. I love making scene projects with all white images. I know you have heard that many times. I created a sparky snowy night scene with a frosty tree and fence line with a sweet little bunny. Sadly you can see the sparkle well in the photos. This may be one of the most difficult projects I have ever tried to photograph and capture the all white images and sparkle against the dark blue background.
I started by applying a dark blue piece of cardstock to the tag and punching a hole at the top for the ribbon. I placed the tag in a box and used white watercolor paint, water and a tooth brush to spatter the snow for the background. I cut the Tree Frame and cut the frame away leaving only the tree and trimmed off the square branches. I cut two Wide Tree sections and pieced them to the back of the tree to create additional branches and attached with glossy accents. I cut the fence sections, fir sprigs and the ground pieces to use for the scene. I painted Crafter’s Pick glue on the branches of the tree section by section and applied crystal glitter I applied the glue and glitter to the top of the fences, on the sprigs, the moon and the ground pieces and set it all aside to dry.
I attached the back ground piece with ATG adhesive and tucked the tree trunk in behind and attached with mounting tape. Next I attached the fences with mounting tape and covered with the front ground piece. I didn’t want that pieces to stick out quite as far as it would with mounting tape so instead I attached a rolled piece of 1/4” double stick tape.
I tucked the fir sprigs in behind the ground pieces attaching with glossy accents. I added the bunny for a sweet touch of nature for the finishing touch.
Thanks for coming by today. I sure hope you go on over to the CLASSroom and check out my post as well as Julie’s day 1 post and Jennifer’s day 2 post.
