One Little Tag Craft Challenge #112
Today the musical artist Prince died. His music has been part of the soundtrack of my life. As a teenager I was into alternative music and his fusion of rock, R&B, jazz and synthesized music was amazing. The song Starfish and Coffee was sort of an anthem for me. The idea of a young girl who did not fit in with everyone else and was teased for it resounded with the experience I had in school. This tag was made in his honor.
Spread several colors of acrylic paint on a non stick craft sheet. Mist with water. Smoosh manila tag into the paint, making sure to cover the entire tag. Let it dry. Stamp script stamp (A Stamp in the Hand) over the acrylic paint using Archival Ink Jet Black. Stamp quote on handmade paper with the same ink. Tear out each word individually. Spray a puddle of Dylusions Spray in Crushed Grape on a non stick craft sheet. Spray stamped pieces of paper with quote on it and then dip edges in the purple puddle. Let dry. Adhere to tag.
