12 Coasters July

You know the challenge I have been having with doing the coasters is they are 4″x4″ not a lot of room to work with however now that we are at the halfway mark I can see how my idea for the coasters is shaping up. I am sure by now your starting to get an inkling of what the finished 12 will be turned into given that I have been using the same colours for them all in various ways.

See T!m’s tag of the month here : July Tag

I loved the layering of this tag as well as the technique not having pressed air (although have been contemplating getting a mini air compressor as they are quite economical) I used a wide straw. For those Aussies reading this I emptied out a Sippah straw and used that.

For me I had fun building up layers and a little texture. Though the picture no where does the center scalloped circle justice in the sense you do not see all the layers . I then used some Kraft Core to make two larger scalloped circles and sanded them. Added in some glazed mini roses in victorian velvet and added them to a back that is layers of tissue paper stamped and painted over then inked around the edges. Stamped on my quote and embossed it. Viola Coaster of the Month.

I am really happy with how this one turned out.
