I would like to share a tag I created for Bona’s (aka Live Love Scrap) mix media tag swap that she hosted on her blog. I am in such awe of her creativity and was super excited I actually was able to get into one of her swaps.
I used a #8 tag which I did washes of the following paints: Folk Art (Slate Blue), Americana (Spa Blue), Ceramcoat (Turquoise and Green Tea).
After the washes dried I glued a piece of a 1920 dictionary page to the tag and then used Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens Fanciful Stencils over part of the page and tag. I then let that dry. I used Perfect Pearls Mists Sour Apple and sprayed a little coat of glimmer to the tag. I used the following rubber stamps: KaiserCraft (bird cage), Christy Tomlinson (butterfly), Limited Edition (complex corner) and Stampabilities (Felt With the Heart). The birdcage, quote and the butterfly I used StazOn Timber Brown and Teal Blue ink and for the complex corner I used Stampin Up’s Craft white ink. The quote I cut apart and inked all of the edges and glued to the tag. Then I fussy cut the butterfly out and applied glue to the center of the body. I folded the wings up to make the butterfly look like it was flying. To finish it off I added a bit of lace , button and a Robin’s Egg Dew Drop to the top of the button and then it was finshed.
I also created a envelope of goodies using a Tattered Angel Field Notes Stamp set, seam binding, scrapbook paper. I included this with each tag I created.
Also when you have a chance check out Bona’s You Tube video. I’ve included the link here. I hope this will inspire you to create your own tag.
Thanks for looking and enjoy creating!!!
