EXPO TAGS | Colour Blast DT Share

Today, I am sharing another Brisbane Expo 2016 “creation” or should I say “Creations”. On the Sunday, I spent some time on the Colour Blast Stand demoing products for passers by. Being that this was the last day and a range of people had been demoing for every hour of the 2 days before there were quite a few samples floating around.  For ease of demoing in such a small space, tags were used to showcase the products and by the Sunday there were quite a few of them.  I decided that I would finish these so that they would not go to waste.  Not only did it mean half the work was done but I could show visitors how they could used the products as a base and build on them to create some really beautiful pieces.

I used tags finished by someone else. I used Chipboard and embossed it using the EMBOSSING POWDERS.  I used a Prima Bird stamp I purchased at the show, stamped it in Stayzon Ink so that it was water fast and then painted them Using the New SHIMMER DUST.  I then fussy cut them and used them as embellishments.  I also added a bit of thread for texture and visual interest.  To some of the backgrounds I added a bit of something else, some stamped texture, another layer of COLOUR PASTE or some embossed texture but I generally left them as is.

I created quite a few cards in my tags in my time on the stand just using what was there as inspiration I planned nothing.  It was a really great process to finish off a process that someone else had started. I think this is a great idea for an art journal class if anyone wants to have me come and teach it.  Do let me know. 😉

Here they are and some close ups:
