Mixed Media Tag Tutorial

Hi my dear crafty friends!


I'm sharing a mixed media tag tutorial today using stencils and stamps from STAMPlorations.


Step 1: I started with a white tag and colored it with an ombre effect with Distress Inks. I used: spiced marmalade, mustard seed and barn door. I added some texture paste with the ARTplorations "Botanical Lush" stencil in the next step. As the Distress Inks are reaktive with water they gave the texture paste a light color.


Step 2: I added some more texture with the "Dots and Dashes" stencil and the Marabu Art Sprays (chilli).

Step 3: I added some Prima Micro Beads to the tag. I used the colors "Pollen" and "Blush". I used Gel Medium to adhere the beads to the surface of my tag.


Step 4: I used some gesso to lighten up the colors a little bit. When the gesso was dry, I added some black licorice Gelatos color.


Step 5: I finished the tag by adding some embellishments. I used a clear epoxy sticker together with a free printable circle. I used dies from Sizzix and CAS-ual Fridays. The text comes with the Subway Art Builder Sets Dare & Create from STAMPlorations.



I wish you a nice and crafty day, see you next time!
Susanne.
