I’m a details girl. I teach classes about it, and my style as a crafter is entirely built around details. So today, I want to feature a whole bunch of detail assisting goodies from Tonic. I have known them forever as makers of great tools – but their Nuvo line digs deep into my beloved mixed media world and I was thrilled when they asked if they could send some goodies for me to play with (and some for you to win!!)
For me, details go into two areas on the bulk of my projects: the backgrounds and the finishing touches. Before I even began creating the focal point for this tag I had used 7 different things to make the background itself detailed and rich. Then once I was done I added all kinds of detail from glitter to clear glaze to fibers to add oomph to the project. Here is my YouTube video tutorial.
Oh how I love this tag! It is so much wild fun and I think my favorite detail is the glitter filled heart at the top. Fabulous! Browns + aqua colors have always been a favorite of mine and I love how this version turned out. Why make a tag? You know when I filmed at scrapbook.com I was asked this and I have many reasons! First and foremost it’s just paper. It’s another place to test ideas. But it can become a tag for a gift, be put on a card, hung on a wall, or incorporated into a scrapbook as well as many other things. It’s just a fun no pressure place for me to play.
Challenge: Dig into some ‘details’ yourself today!
