Alberto Gava - Alby has been busy creating this lovely tag and has written a tutorial for the newspaper background.
What you will need:
- Newspaper Pages
- White Card
- Plastic Sheet or Bag
- Spray Bottle filled with Water
- ZIG® 2 Way Glue
- ZIG® Art & Graphic Twins.
Cut your card to the size of the tag you wish for. Then, tear your newspaper into pieces roughly 4cm x 4cm in size and stick them on to your white card using ZIG® 2 Way Glue . Layer and overlap the pieces to create the best effect. Once your tag is fully covered add a layer of PVA glue and allow to dry.
Take your chosen colours of ZIG® Art & Graphic Twins and scribble your colours onto the plastic bag or sheet. Your ink should remain as a liquid as the plastic will not absorb the ink.
Now take your tag and drag it over the colour a number of times to create a similar effect to this...
You then have the beautiful tag that Alby used as a background to his creation.
