Black Gesso Magic

Hello, Friends!
Today we have another Creative Team showstopper!
Elena writes that her tags make a great addition to a gift but I would rather say they would make a perfect gift themselves! Just see for yourselves...


Hello,
today I'd like to show you two mixed-media tags I created using new Finnabair products.
This was the first time that I used black gesso and I have to tell you - it's amazing!


When creating these tags I used Silks paints from Luminarte. I used the Iridesсent line which shows the color best on dark surfaces - and here comes in the black gesso - it made just a perfect background for these paints and allowed to really show their true beauty!



The twinkle and shimmer on the tags look just unreally beautiful!
You really need to try out these two products together!


These tags are always nice to have in reserve as I think they make a great addition to your present!

If you'd like to see how the tags were created, I prepared a short video tutorial especially for you:

p.s. In case you missed the latest news - there is a celebratory giveaway on my blog!
       It's only up 'till Tuesday midnight CET so don't wait and join us all to win the goodies and congratulate my Creative Team on their first month of creative adventure. :)
