Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 27

This weeks challenge was page 60 of Tim's book, "Distress Misting Masks".  Something I've tried before but without the instructions from a qualified crafter, so was not very succesful.  Really enjoyed this and now feel the need to buy loads of Mini Misters so I can create more of my own recipe mists.  This is the tag I produced using the recipe.

to see more of other peoples attempts at this challenge visit the L3 studio.

Ace tag mississ
you might invest in the Collins little book of colour? - i use it all the time to mix my colour palettes, and I think it is only £5? if you are interested ask me for the ISBN, I do not mind at all if you ignore my ramblings....

i got mine second hand after losing my first one (or giving it away) and picked one up from amazon....it is also useful in that it tells me the different colour names used for differed media - so I can see the same colour cream is called different things for watercolour/acrylic/oil; it also means I do not have to find my own colour charts in various deeply buried journals.

I can then work out what to mix ( not oil and water tho) to get the complimentary or a scale of hue in the one tone and i write it on the book....I see colour as being like music and our brushes are the instrument - all it takes is determination and practice...

do yourself a colour wheel using Every thing you possess and then do one with the mixed colours -- hahahaha

you will be stunned....

then pin your super dooper rainbow to the wall for reference - a feast of colour for the eyes - it also helps to remind me why I usually stick to three or four colours in various hues in a real piece!!! two complimentary (the third another complimentary or a contrast) and a neutral. Only nature can do rainbows and even she makes it look unreal...

Great tag! I love that stamp you used, looks really good just off the edge like that.

Siobhan, this tag is great! I love the masked barbed wire, especially with the fabulous Stampotique image, and the shimmer in the background really comes through in the photo wonderfully. Love the sentiment, too!
