Show a little restraint, will you? I did in February. It was my word for the month. It’s a good word to keep top of mind for someone like me…someone who needs to keep her cards a little closer to her chest.
I created the tag as part of the art to the 5th, Documented Life Unplanner 2016 project. Week 2 of February’s challenge was create with variations of one color. What a perfect challenge for showing some restraint.
I used a black tag. Sprayed Dylusions White Lined spray over a stencil at bottom right and top left of tag. Spray is awesome but provides very little control. Be prepared to surrender perfection. Loved the shades of white on the black tag. Splattered some ink randomly on the tag. Printed “restraint” on white copy paper. Layered a titch of white polka dot paper and almost called it done. But it seemed a little too restrained. Added a silver flower from a bracelet and some sheer white ribbon. The icing on the cake really turned out to be the large tag I adhered it to, another shade of white ribbon and some white uniball pen doodles; I was struggling with how to store the tag in my book without putting holes in the actual tag when I decided adhering it to another tag created the same way was the perfect layered piece.
