Mixed Media Tag

Hey all, I just wanted to pop in and share with you all a mixed media inspired tag I created. 


I started with a large shipping tag that I backed with some thick chipboard for added sturdiness


I pulled out my handmade circle stencil and some modelling paste
 and completely covered my tag
 Once this dried I stamped down one edge with Jet Black Stazon and a large script stamp


I pulled out these three sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang.  They are Dark Chocolate Truffles; Tibetan Poppy Teal and Autumn Maple Crimson
 Here is the first coat of Tibetan Poppy Teal
 and the second and third coats.

 Then I decided to spray it with some of the Autumn Maple Crimson and I thought Oh no I have ruined it!!.  It went this mucky purple colour you see here.  Unfortunately peoples this is where most of the process pics stop.  I got busy trying to fix what I considered a hot mess.

This is what I ended up with....
In my efforts to salvage this tag I inked up the edge of the tag with more of the Jet Blac stazon and I splattered on some of the Dark Chocolate Truffles, which, once they dried, left gold splatters.  This really helped to blend in all the metal embellishments from Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd.

Here are some close ups on all the details....





Well readers that is it.  If you are going to SENZ this year please stop by the Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd stall and say hello. I would love to meet you :)


....remember to live your bliss......

  1. Oh my... Kimi, this is absolutely stunning! I liked the part you considered "mucky" ? The gold splatters compliment both the teal & those amazing eembellies! You should do more mixed media. A fave, great job.....
