Mixed media tags

Hi, DT Henriëtte here today sharing two mixed media tags I’ve created using different CrafTangles products.

I’ve made a lot of photo’s of the entire process so let’s get started.
The first thing I did was to cut two tag shapes using heavy cardboard. They are about 9 x 15 cm.

I covered the tags with the Craftangles ombre watercolor papers.

and coated the tags with white gesso (I diluted the gesso with water). Gesso prepares the surface of the tags for painting/spray inks. Without the gesso the inks will soak into the papers.

After the gesso dried, I’ve added texture to the tags. I used CrafTangles stencils and texture paste.
Once the texture paste dried I sprayed trendy teal on one tag
and bamboo brown on the other.
I also used these inks on my embellishments;  chipboards, cheesecloth and paper flowers.

I used the same ombre watercolors paperpad to die cut my flowers.

These art sprays give really vibrant colors to your projects.
I also used some glimmer paste on the cheesecloth and chipboard pieces to make them shiny and glittery.
and here is the assembled blue tag. The leaves are die cuts from scraps of cardstock and then covered with copper glitter paste. I’ve also added a few sequins and a die cut sentiment from metallic paper. Finally I’ve added some gesso in some of the area’s to get more dimension.
On the second tag I’ve added some lace at the bottom of the tag (the lace is also colored with the bamboo brown art spray). The sentiment is a copper metallic piece of paper with a “Thanks” sentiment printed on. You can print on metallic paper and then heat set the ink with a heat tool, then the letters won’t smear.
I hope you like these mixed media tags and that you found some inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by today.
Hugs, Henriëtte.
