Joie de Vivre

Relax and get ready for summer!  Even Zombies need a break from groaning and eating brains.  Check out my tutorial on this fun summery Ectetera Tag.


DCWV is joining with Xyron for some awesome projects all week.  I was sent the Jioe de Vivre paper and 6X6 Brights Paper Stack full of fun bright patterns.  I grabbed some dies (linked below) and cut some of the Brights paper (linked below)

Check it out..


I prepped the zombie and cut a surf board with matching Jioe de Vivre paper.


I ran the pattern paper surf board I cut through the Create a Sticker a to adhere to the matboard surfboard.  With the zombie dry I was able to ink some green skin with Oxide ink Peeled Paint.


I die cut brights and Jioe de Vivre  to create a tropical shirt and Bermuda shorts.  I flicked some distress paint on them and used the Create a Sticker to adhere.


How adorable... mini boards with more pattern paper.  I cut the brights paper using the Tapered Fringe die for the grassy shirt, island and bottom of the tag.  I prepped the Ectetera Tag with white gesso and used distress crayons for a watery, sunset background.


I used the Rays stencil to create sun rays.  I cut out the Jioe de Vivre  (meaning- enjoyment of life) from one of the papers, attached with collage medium crazing.  I cut the twisted die with the 6X6 Brights Paper Stack in various blues paper to create waves.


More fringe for the bottom cut with Jioe de Vivre  paper.  I created this fun banner because who doesn't want to relax!  Now to prep some crazy things balloons!


Ink and cut!  I twisted some metal for the balloons using the Twist n' Style Tool.  I attached the balloons and cut some scraps to hold them in place with a circle punch.  Super easy!


Surfs Up...


I made the circle part of the tag look like a life saver!  


I love the little island oasis with grassy bits and surfboards!


A little mixed media element with the joie de vivre sentiment.


The balloons are a fun pop of colour!


OMGOSH I love his tropical shirt and surfboard!


The twisted waves, grassy fringe and Relax banner are all pulled together for a hang loose vibe!


Who's ready for a tropical vacation!  Check out the whole Xyron Team all week for more DCWV inspiration.  Get creative and just Relax!
