After watching the video I did just that, cutting my own tags as I didn't have any large enough.
I tend to be a bit conservative with colour so this was a bit scary at first but I just went for it, no thinking just colour sprays and water and I love the results, although the photo is just a tad more intense than they are in reality. My favourites are the ones on the left and as they were a little wet (soaking actually) I dragged my ruler through the ink to make those 'tendrils'. Tomorrow I am going to add stamping to a few of them and the rest will go in my scrap box.
On a roll now I got out the journal - all that lovely white space - as the next step was to add colour in a similar way to my first ever journal pages. The paper in it is quite thin so I stuck two pages together and added gesso before spraying direct on the pages, adding a little mica spray and water and then mopping up the excess inks.
You can just make out the impression of circles left by the kitchen roll I used to mop up the ink. Although the inks I used on both tag and pages was the same, give or take a spray or two, the effect is very different - maybe the gesso has lightened the colours. Not sure whats next for the pages but it will incorporate at least one of the tags as a record of my kick-started mojo. Think the hardest thing for me will be to actually write on the page - hate my handwriting.
The next video is due tomorrow and I can't wait to see what that one is - watch this space and get signed up to that site.
