Blue & Orange Tags 14

Hello Kraafters!

On the Kraaft It LIVE! show we issued a COLOR CHALLENGE.  Basically, use Blue and Orange together in a work of heART this month! 

I decided to make a tag because that is something I never do.  Honestly, I have a hard time finding a purpose for tags, so I really have a hard time making them.  I like my art to have purpose, but that may change now!  LOL

The two tags I finished on Tuesday were so much fun I kept on playing around.  I am just loving this color combo and all the fun mixed media goodies were out so I kept playing.

I played around with the watercolors, the paints and the glazes I made using my Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals and the extra tags I had made during the show and created a few more…3 actually!  

The first I stamped the word BRAVE.  I felt I was being pretty brave with this color combo and it was so much fun.  It made me feel FEARLESS and so I had to stamp that word on the second tag.  I added some silver bling tape and some Antique Silver Art Sugar to the third tag.

I just loved the way these came out but I was having trouble putting words on that final tag.  It just hit me today – it has been a little while since I had done the Word Of Inspiration Wednesday posting for myself…the last Wednesday of 2014 was “New Beginnings” so I embossed the word NEW and then hand wrote BEGINNINGS and 2015 on the tag!

Now I feel so accomplished! I have successfully completed a project that was fun, inspiring and fits well into 3 categories or challenges.

I even wrote a blog post about it! 

Now THAT is impressive.

About Heather Kraafter

First and foremost, I am a child of the One True King! I am blessed to be married to my best friend and was privileged to stay home and raise my boys. I began the Kraaft Shaak in 2010 as a way to experiment with crafting mediums and to teach others what I have learned and have come to enjoy it as my creative passion. Taking the 'show on the road' is my latest passion and each day is one step closer to that dream. Thanks for being a part of that journey too!

      oh you are too cute – I was proud of myself a little because I never GET TO PLAY anymore. There will be MUCH more of that in 2015!!!

    My phone is not letting me see a bigger version of your tag which is very frustrating! I know they are beautiful and I want to see the details!

      Thanks Zsuzsa, I hated to break them up but sending them to happy homes felt right and I hope the owners love them!
