Lot's of Layer's by Sam

Good Morning Splodgy Splodgers,

What are you all doing this weekend? I can't wait until Holly settles on a night so I can pull all my stash out and have a good play.

Today we are continuing with the theme 'Lot's of Layer's' and Sam is showcasing her monochrome tag. Find all the details below on how to make this beautiful tag.

Products Used:
12x12 SplodgeAway Mat
Black Soot Distress Ink
Knitted Top & Flower, ribbobs and card from my own stash
Tim Holtz Dress Form Die


 Cut out the Dress Form in the black card -   Dress it however you want to - mess around with a few fabrics, just glue them into place first if this is new to you, some people sew them on.  Decide on the angle you want it to be on i.e. leaning left, right, or straight.  I usually decide this depending on what I am going to put in the Tag Hole.  So I leaned it to the left - I am very symmetrical except when I am doing a tag? If you want the centre piece and the top to stand out its best if you don't line them up straight.

So the fun bit - I just couldn't decide which SplodgeAway Mask I wanted to use which was ideal because there you have your layers for the challenge.  I dressed the Form in the winter warmers and layered up the masks, I just grabbed a handful of my highly patterned Masks.  I had undercoated the tag with the Chalk Paint as it is cream and I wanted a whiter background so that I only had to use Black on the masks. 

So on this bit don't try to do the same as me just get out all your favourite SplodgeAway masks and go over a corner, to the side of the dressform, fill in gaps with the dots?  Just have some Splodgy fun.
Hope you like it Sam
