Stunning Gansai Tambi Starry Colors Tag

Hi, today it’s my turn again to show you how I made my creation step by step. And I’m having some fun using the Gansai Tambi watercolors and the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors.

I started by cutting a piece of watercolor in the shape of a tag. I also cutted out a circle that I used to trace around, each time drawing 3 circles slightly overlapping. I used the Zig Millenium marker as this one is waterproof when dry.

Then I took out the nr 54 olive green and nr 47 dark brown Gansai Tambi and colored my tag. First a light layer, afterwards I colored in the circles a bit darker. I also had some splotches of color on my tag.

I then took the Gansai Tambi Starry colors nr. 901 Blue gold and nr.903 Yellow gold. I used the nr. 903 Yellow gold to create a big drip, the nr. 901 Blue gold to make a little shade where my focal image will be glued down.

I then used the same two golden Starry colors to color in my focal image: a butterfly that was embossed on black paper using a clear embossingpowder.

To finish off my background I stamped little pieces of a stamp. I used the Zig Art and Graphic marker as this made it easy to just ink up the pieces of my stamp that I wanted to use.

When my stamping was done it was just a matter of gluing everything together and add a sentiment.

Thanks for watching, I hope you give it a try.

Scrapbooking with fabricolors pens

Hello fellow readers!

Here I will show you my project using my collection of ZIG Fabricolors; I was in the mood to do some scrapbooking, so I grabbed a couple of craft tags and my pens and just let my imagination run free.

 Products used :

I started doodling on the fabric, with different colours.

Even if I don't use the violet and gold flowers, I will save this for a projects in my art book. They are too pretty to waste them. Mixing colors with the gold and silver tones look amazing.

I painted some red, and then let it dry for a while before painting silver dots; then a teapot appeared. 

I drew the little mushrooms using the brush tip of the black pen. I coloured the background in yellow, and added some details in golden.  I also added some stitch work around the artwork to add some interesting effects to the tag.

I glued the little pieces of fabric together adding some nice embellishments.

It was a quick and easy process, just doodling following my instincts, and putting everything together. Different for me as I'm not used to working with fabrics. 

Hope you have all enjoyed and gathered new ideas for your art crafting :D
Take care!
