Tag You're It - Inspired by.....

Aww did you see the football such a brilliant start for England and such a disaster by the goalie xxx Lets hope we fair better against Algeria and Slovenia hey.

This week at Tag You're it the theme is Inspired by.... We want to who inspires you in your artistic journey with papercraft.

I chose one of the genius artists of the impressionist era. My Mother is French so when I was small we spent a lot of time in Paris. I remember going to the Musee D'Orsay to see an Impressionist exibition and was gobsmacked by the fantastic artwork. Monet Stood out for me as outstanding.

As a teenager in art class we had to replicate "The Lillies" again I was so intrigued. Most recently I attented the stunning exhibition at The Royal Academy. SPEECHLESS!!!

So my favourite stamps are Sweet Pea Stamps and so I used this little beauty Spring Spread to make my tag. I decided to have a play with my copics and promarkers and I used the dotting technique. Loved doing this a real challenge but very enjoyable. I then used the white gel pen to try and create the texture that oils/acrylic would have. I mounted onto some card stock.

The sentiment I stamped seperately glued on and then coloured over. It is a marvellous sentiment. I added some faux stitching some string and spacers with gems attatched.





Inspired by Claude Monet


Cannot wait to see who inspires you. Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it. Hugs Pascale xx
