Tag Friday - it's a bright one!

We have a Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey today.  I am still in my bright colour phase, following a couple of Dina Wakley online classes!
This time though I have used the new face stamp from PaperArtsy / France Papillon. I had great fun using these for a recent post for PaperArtsy - and Lilly (as FP calls her) was still on my desk.

The Dina influence is evident - but great mix and change styles!
The face is stamped on tissue paper, coloured on the reverse before adhering to the loosely painted background on the tag.

I hope everyone is keeping well during these difficult times. As some know I am struggling with the isolation of living alone, working at home and the gym shut. But art remains a great outlet for my frustrations.

  1. Such a fantastic tag Nikki x This is the first I have seen the FP stamps and the face is amazing. I love the colourful background, which looks quite complex to me xx It's clear you have enjoyed DW's online classes. I hope you are feeling better now you have finally met with a friend and gone walking xx Our crafts have certainly been therapeutic in giving another focus during these difficult times xx

  3. Gorgeous summery colours - the hangover from the DW class is serving you well! And it really suits the France Papillon face too, somehow. There's such intensity to her gaze with those vivid green eyes, and it works beautifully with the powerful words. A cracking Tag Friday tag.

  4. Brilliant Nikki, love that you painted the stamped tissue on the reverse before adhering it, what a great technique! Love your bright colour palette and I can definitely see Dina's influence, thanks so much for sharing it, Deb xo

  5. Love that face image Nikki! Great colors and design on your background and pretty layered leaves as accents! xx
