I see right through you

Summer's heating up - thank that big ol' fire ball in the sky! But summer also invokes beautiful colors, like a sunset or fresh flowers or even the iridescence of summer bubbles your kids are blowing through their bubble wands.

And it inspired me to create a different sort of tag...


I've always wanted to do a plastic tag but I didn't want it to be a regular old thing. I cut it into a square shape with a wavy edge at the top. And then had some fun with the heat gun!


I wanted it to have a sense of movement and shape - definitely not just flat. And my Lindy's sprays and shakers had some hills and valleys to run in. I used Witch's Potion Purple and Bachelor Button Blue sprays & Yodeling Yellow and Lederhosen Laurel shakers. I went around the edges with Obviously Black EP for contrast. I decided to add the word Joy - the colors and sun look peaceful and serene. 


I stamped my sun face and drew around it with a paint pen - he looks like he's melting somewhat. And I used all the Lindy's colors on a piece of string for a tie dye effect.


The heat gun really created great warps & shape as well as movement & pooling with the colors. It's a simple tag that packs a punch without being overloaded - the colors and warps speak volumes.

Since I'm talking about Lindy's, I'm entering this in their July challenge.


And I'll give it a whirl at Scrapki-wyzwaniowo for their Sun challenge


AND the Mixed Media Place June challenge which is all about summer as well!
