Today I made a simple, but yet fancy, Mixed Media tag . This is one layer tag, made with different mediums, lots of new ARTplorations stencils and some new STAMPlorations stamps. It's totally flat, but looks like it has a lot of texture and layers.
So let's see how to make this tag.
1. Paint your hand made tag (or use the real one if you have it) with a mix of 3 fluid acrylics for the full coverage of the cardstock.
2.Use texture paste to make one single long arrow using the new stencil called Feathers and Arrows. I used just one simple arrow from the top to bottom of this tag. Heat dry the paste to make some " bubbles" texture.
3.Add " Create art" words with the same paste and another new stencil called Fearless. Let this one air dry.
5.Now let's stamp! I stamped the EXPLORE the unknown over the texture words and the Beyond Boundaries between the words to make the whole title of this tag. Use some permanent ink or heat emboss the black ink if you used the pigmented ink. Add the line from the borders set around the edges and make some black pen outlining and white pen doodling over the finished tag.I also added a bit of golden and dark red paint over the white letters and shapes.
Two STAMPlorations stamp set used here are Explore and Artsy border makers.
7.Tie the ribbons and your fancy artsy tag is done!
