Mug Shots

Continuing with the coffee themes:

I was looking through my digital files when I came across the sentiment "mug shots" in the Crafty Secrets kitchen collection.

The idea immediately came to mind to show a film strip of mugs.  I found a film strip in my Pixel Scrappers digi collection, made by Janet Scott.  Using my Photoshop software, I filled the strip with cups from the Cup Collection found at Vera Lane Studio etsy shop.  The photographer and bow also are from Vera Lane Studio 

This time I wanted to create a mixed media tag for my coffee themed album.  I started with Stampin' Up very vanilla card stock and printed out all the digis.  Then I used another piece for the background.  




I made a Gelli Plate print using Lumiere Crimson paint, Deco Art Primitive chalky paint, and dry wall tape.
Once my print was dry, I placed on top of it the STAMPlorations ARTplorations Holly Background stencil and used a sponger dabber with Ranger Pine Needles Distress Ink.  I tried a red Sharpie on the berries.  

Fussy cut images and tag edges are edged with a black sharpie.  I used Stampin' Up dimensionals with the photographer and word strips.  The ricrac is The Paper Studio trim.
