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.

Your mixed media tag really turned out well. I'm in awe of what you've done with the digis. Not sure I could ever come close to making anything like this. The colors are perfect and I love all the dimension and texture. Awesome. Bev
