Having Fun With Shipping Tags #8 - Background Reveal

Hi everyone!

After 5 months of no crafting, no tag challenges (except for one that I did at Mandy's) I found it very hard to get back into the swing of things for this one. From start to finish I was not enjoying it at all. When I finally did the journal page based on this tag challenge I was much happier! Thank goodness the tags are only a guide and I'm learning from them also!

I did like how the sponged application of the paint looked, if only I didn't continue to cover it up LOL.

So today started out with just sponging on the mediums until I got sick of that LOL. Instead of the sponging technique this tag ended up being the background reveal - a technique I just love!

So I decided to get the gesso out and go over what I did! Pretty much did the same as before but without the masking fluid. I added the colour, traced some butterflies and painted around them to leave the coloured butterflies as the focal images. I'm not a fan of going over something I've created just because I didn't like it, but I did it for this one, given that it was a challenge LOL.

Don't give up on this one just yet - the journal page worked out great, and that's the whole point of the tags, to give something a go and try to create a page based on it.
