  Here's another textured tag. I absolutely love the "colour splash" Fx in photo editing, which is, having few elements in colour in an otherwise desaturated background. So I decided to do the same on paper & the sports theme seemed to match it perfectly.
Here's the tag.


Steps follow, digital remix at the end.

I decided upon the elements on the layout first And then made each of them.
The "#1" &  hoop was done with 3D liner, the ball with modeling clay.


3D liner applied to OHP sheet & peeled off carefully with the  help of craft knife. It's flexible when dry & perfect for the ropes.
Gave a coat of gesso over all of them & colored with acrylic paints.
As u can see I have colored only the ball with bright colors and everything else in black white.

For the base, I cut 6"×2 1/2" cardstock, applied gesso with an old game station card. This gives more texture than with a brush.
I sponged black paint on the edges.
Random stamping of scripts.
Modelling paste & stencil used for the numbers.


Arranged the elements in their respective place & gave the highlights & faux stitches with white gel pen.


Finally I gave a coat of modpodge to seal everything.


For the digital remix, I wondered how the colored version will look & what's not possible digitally ! !


Hope you liked it. Cheers.!
Create. Have fun
