Wildflower GiganTAG by Tracey Fairgrieve


Hello everyone it's Monday again and it's my turn to share a little That's Crafty! creativity.

Today I'm showcasing my GiganTAG featured on last Fridays Hochanda shows using the *Sell Out* Large Wild Flower Greyboard embellishments and fabulous Shimmer Paints.

Here is my Wild Flower GiganTAG *How to do's in words and pictures.


Layering the White/Greyboard GiganTAG with lace I primed with white gesso and painted the lower lace with Green, and Yellow Shimmer paint new to the That's Crafty! range, a combination of Turquoise and Pink creates the summer sky. Watered down shimmer paints have been dripped down the tag pooling onto the lace to create atmosphere.






The large wildflower greyboard embellishments have been coloured using Posca Marker Pens as their matte finish contrasts with the shimmering background. When I was happy with the arrangement I glued on the large wildflowers raising some away from the tag to give dimension.







Directly onto the tag I stamped the flock of birds from Lynnes Affirmations Set 2, concealing some amongst the clouds adding shade using a Posca marker pen.






Attention to detail has been added using Stickles Distress Glitter Glue, micro beads, Glossy Accents and the finer detail using Posca Markers pens. My GiganTag is complete.






As these GiganTags are so large I decided to turn mine into a wall hanging by punching two holes into the tag and adapting a pair of unused chopsticks to create a hanger.






There is something quite freeing about having a large space to be creative and these 15" x 7,5" GiganTAGS really do give you that blank canvas.

Thank you for sharing your time, I look forward to sharing my That's Crafty! creativity with you all same time next Monday, until then take care and have a wonderful week.

Creative Hugs Tracey xx
