Free For All – Cheiron Brandon

  

Greetings from the Creative Squad! Today we have a bright and happy tag project from Cheiron Brandon that will be perfect for the next hostess gift you present! She’s using my Love Tag stamp from the Stroll Through the Hood 1 set and stamps from my Embroidery set, and of course, this month’s theme: Free for All! It’s time for summer vacation and relaxing so around here the Creative Squad is taking a break from themes this month. They’re just going with the flow and making a project of their choosing. It’s a Free for All!


Hi there, it’s Cheiron here with my monthly post for July using the Free for All theme. Sometimes it’s just fun to have a little creative play at your desk and not complete a finished project at all. I love trying out new inks and paints so this month I gessoed up some tags and played around with Distress Oxides. To create these tags is really simple, put the Distress Oxides onto a non-stick craft sheet, spray with water and swipe the tags through to add some color to the background and dry them with a heat tool.

I used the Cross Circle, Running, and Grannies stamps from the Embroidery set to stamp different patterns using the same color of inks that I used to make my tags. These inks stamp wonderfully with Nat’s stamps. To finish off the tags, I added a heart die cut and stamped the graffiti word LOVE from the Stroll Through the Hood 1 set on them. What to do with these tags once you are done? That is entirely up to you! I like to embellish them with some bling and tie them onto a bottle of wine when going to a friend’s house, add them to an art journal spread or simply use them as a gift topper on a package. Hope you will try making some fun tags next time you want to experiment with a new medium.


Thank you Cheiron for these beauties! Cheiron used the following supplies in her project (some are affiliate links):

All of Me Loves All of You – Art Journal

I guess I have spring feelings- LOL. I love this – “All of Me Loves All of You” .

This was a quick but fun spread using different acrylic spray paints over three different stencils.

I like how the stencil pattern of Santa Fe, Granada and Mesa Verde look so good together – I want a blanket with this :)

I added the journaling with a Fude pen and stamped with the Love Tag stamp into the heart.

To define the heart a bit more I traced it with some Artgraf Pigments -dry and wet.

I think I found a new color combination I like :)

Here are some of the supplies I used for this spread- some links are affiliate links:

    This page looks 3D. It seems to me like I am looking thru a screen and there are some lovely orange flowers and then the sky. The sky looks far away – 3D to me!!! Orange is my favorite color and that deep sky blue looks so yummy with it here. I REALLY am enjoying this journal creations Nat. Thanks bunches for your inspiration! Xj.

    I love my Fude pens and the color combo of rust and blue has been a fav of mine. I wouldn’t have thought to use the purple with it but I like it.

      sue, that is so true- it was a surprise for me too how much I liked the color combination. It is fun to sometimes try out new things – this is a good reminder for me :)
