Big Dreams Tag

Hi there,

we are starting a new Mixed Media Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers and this month it is all about Texture:

  • adhere some tissue paper strips to a Manila Tag using Multi Medium Matte
  • cover the tag with gesso
  • create a background using Distress Paints (Peeled Paint, Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord)
  • use a pencil to sketch a girl on a piece of patterned paper from the Julie Nutting Buff paper pad and color her with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a waterbrush
  • adhere her to the tag using Multi Medium Matte
  • add a shadow using the Stabilo All Pen (black) and a waterbrush
  • apply white embossing paste through the TCW Art is stencil and Distress Ink (Dusty Concord) through the Dina Wakley Plastic Canvas stencil
  • ink up the edges of the tag with the same purple ink
  • spread some glue from the DecoFoil Adhesive Pen onto the top right and the bottom left corner of the tag, let it dry and rub some DecoFoil (Lilac) on top for shine and even more texture
  • dye a piece of seam binding with Distress Inks (Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint), thread it through the hole of the tag and tie it into a bow
