I cannot believe it is already December! This month is always fast for me for the obvious holiday reasons and also it is the month of both my and my husband’s birthday! Needless to say, there’s a whole lot of gift giving going on, so today I knew I needed to make some tags.
I love mixed media tags but don’t end up getting to make them as often as I would like. They can also be created for art journals and backgrounds. Sometimes it’s even fun to make pockets in your art journal with a tag slipped in.
Last month for my Patreon (www.patreon.com/panart) I designed and gave away a couple of stencils, so I had these watercolor cards lying around from where I had “tested” the stencil with DecoArt’s metallic lustre. I didn’t want anything to go to waste, so I cut the paper down into two cute little tag sized pieces. Then, I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and Artistcellar “Quasicrystals” and “Arabian Nights” series stencils.
Then, I dried it with a heat gun and added ice stickles glitter glue over the top for extra shine. To finish it, I punched a hole and added some ribbon and even fabric.
The sky is really the limit with tags, and they’re fun to make because they are so small — you can really make a lot of them in a short amount of time. They make for a great way to experiment with colors and supplies!
