Scrapping our Stash Monthly Blog Hop!

Hello, hello!  It's that time of the month where we scrap our stash, with Practical Scrappers!  You should have arrived here from Lee-Anne's blog - if you didn't you may want to go back and check out all of the wonderful inspiration!  This group of ladies are so talented and always are full of fabulous ideas!  This month I decided to make a Dina Wakley style tag.  Not sure how I'm going to use it yet, it could go into my journal, turned into a card, put on a present...I always have lots of ideas!  To start with I stamped the bird with jet black archival ink on watercolor paper.  I painted the bird using magenta, tangerine and lemon and a little bit of white Dina Wakley Media Paints.  Then I cut it out after it had dried thoroughly.  For the tag itself, I laid down a layer of white gesso and let dry.  I added a little turquoise and sky Dina Wakely Media Paint to the background and let dry.   I stamped one of Dina's word stamps with watering can archival ink all the way down the right side of the tag.  I splattered some picket fence distress spray stain and let dry.  To finish off my tag I added some vintage sheet music and some stitched glassine distress paper and a little black thread before gluing my bird down.  I love using Dina's product, it's always so full of color!
 I hope you enjoyed my Dina Wakley style tag, now it's time to hop on over to Wendy C's blog!  You can find all the supplies I used at Inspiration Emporium via the links below.  Remember to use my coupon code - vintagemuse - to save 10% on your order.   If you have any questions or if there's anything I missed please let me know I love your comments, I appreciate each and everyone of them!  As always thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time!

  11. Cute design but your blog is almost impossible to read! Too small and fonts are way to light...it's a shame, because it looks like it might have some great info on it. God bless!
