I received this piece with my November's Creativity add on from Scraps of Darkness. I wanted to collage it but I didn't like the look, I felt it needed more dimension so I started to punch hearts, (tons of them) to cover it. Well, I didn't cover it all, just a portion and glued really tiny ones here and there along with some sequins on the other side.
To color the heart I used the paint that came with the Color add on and added Crackle paint too.
When I received my November kit "Serenade" from Scraps of Darkness I immediately thought of making this gift bag for a special one, loved the papers and all the goodies that came in the main kit, color and creativity add ons.
Today I want to share a few tips on how I organize my sprays, based on a YouTube video I saw a while ago organizing inks. I normally sort them by color but in this particular case I wanted to show how many different colors look together.
For each color I spray one manila tag, one 2" x 2" white cardstock square (to put on the plastic sheet which is a coin organizer), 2 circles of the same papers and one white round sticker for the bottle. As you can see, I also label each color using a labeler but you can just write the color on your square if you prefer.
I find the little circles are easier to manage when I want to combine colors. The reason I spray a manila tag is, that the color looks different on manila than over white, and I use lots of tags in my projects, so its convenient for me to have a swatch of the colors on that material as well. If for example, you use a lot of kraft paper in your projects, you could do a similar thing, but instead of manila, use kraft paper, and you’ll have easy access to how your colors look on your most favorite materials to use while creating.
I use a coin organizer sheet, and round mailing seals, manila tags, a label maker, and white cardstock as my materials. You can find all those items at your local office supply store and/or online. Super fast and easy way to inventory the colors you have. If you have a large collection of colors, it might take a bit of time to get all the swatches done, but all the time you’ll save after having everything organized, is so worth the effort!
I hope you find my tips useful for your own product organizing, I know it makes finding the perfect color I need for a project so much easier!
