Spring Mixed Media Tag


Another tag today, this time with fresh, cheery, spring colours.
I started with a leafy piece of 6 x 6 inch paper from an old Basic Grey collection called 'Sultry' and cut it a few millimetres smaller than my chipboard tag, which is a 3.5 x 6 inch tag from Prima.


I roughed up the edges of the tag and the paper (in an non-violent way...lol), adhered the paper to the tag and then started decorating.


A mixture of elements....Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and flat beads, a Prima keyhole mould, wooden foliage and birdcage embellishments that I embossed with a white, glittery powder from Honey Doo Crafts.


There is additional colour in amongst the embellies using this luscious Green Apple Impasto paint from Prima.


More texture with various sized artstones, which I love...


....sisal and and then a couple of metal dragonflies.


I love making these tags, they can either be used on gift packaging or as a hanging ornament. Sometimes I like to add a message or encouraging sentiment.
And then, as if by magic, when I photographed it the sun came out.
