Mixed Media Tag

Today I have a mixed media tag that's simply oooooozing with embellishments.

The tag is a heavyweight chipboard from Prima and measures 3.5 x 6 inches.

Gesso'd first to prepare the base then a layer of white, crackle paste.

I decided to go for a rustic look with embellishments painted and waxed with browns, golds and brassy colours. I used Prima Impasto paint and then a selection of acrylic paints and metallique waxes, again all from Prima / Finnabair.

Lots of embellishments surround the picture frame, which has an opening on one side so you can slip a photo in.

So what did I use? kitchen sink this, but I did use wooden hearts, glass stones, microbeads, glitter (regular and glass glitter), ....

.... some wooden shapes and metal flowers. I painted the flowers pink in the end as I felt they were getting a bit lost being a bronze colour.

So there you have it.
A really touch, feely tag.
