Saturday Step X Step - Hey Mr Music man .

Well it is Trace here and my turn to show you a step X step. Now as soon as I saw the new Brett Weldele stamps ..I knew some of them were for me..the quirky style just appealed ...so here is my step X step make using Brett Weldeles' Music Man set . Linda has all the new designs from Brett Weldele in store now ...so why not check them out. Here is the set I have used.
 
I started with a #10 tag. I applied some distress stain in pumice stone and frayed burlap to my craft sheet , spritzed the tag and swooshed through the stains..drying and spritzing until happy with it. Then set this aside.
I then took a #8 tag and tore off the bottom part , covering with some Tim Holtz paper with music design.This is too dark for the final creation but with a little picket fence distress stain magic it can be toned down see below.
I wanted a hint of the design but not for it to over take the whole finished piece, so a couple of coats of picket fence distress stain and the detail is still visible but not the focus ...
Now for planning out the design of the final tag. I die cut some of the new trellis framework die from the same paper...found an adage ticket which I cut in two and also added some tissue tape to the smaller tag. I always leave my pieces loose until the end , as I like to play around and sometimes change the design but laying them out helps plan the final layout.
Here it is with the main image stamped out, I will fussy him but just using this to get the layout in my mind.
Once happy with the layout I stuck down the trellis using the plain side of the paper and then filled in the gaps using the patterned music side of the paper. I also added the two pieces of the adage ticket and some music tissue tape. For the sentiment I stamped in jet black archival and then tore the bottom part and cut the other edges . I coloured using frayed burlap distress ink and over stamped with the music stamp from the set in frayed burlap too, edging in walnut stain DI.
 Here is the detail , so you don't have to stand on your head!
Now for the main image ..I stamped him in jet black archival and then added colour using my treasured distress markers and water brush.
Now for the final touches...which again before gluing I lay onto the piece and fiddle around until happy.


So here are the details ...
Some rolled music tissue tape inside the little vial wrapped with wire . Some cogs too.
At the top of the tag some seam binding dyed with frayed burlap distress stain, a type charm filled with piece of the same music paper and covered with layer of glossy accents, a gorgeous new idea-ology arrow and also some more cogs x
Well hope you like this make and make sure you hop across to see all the other new goodies in the boutique...there are lots more Brett stamps to choose from as well of lots of other goodies x
