Hi crafty friends!
The Christmas season has arrived. I love making tags during the season, so join me as I make a mixed media tag today.
First, we will need one of the tags from the Acrylic Tag Album set. Once you have you chosen one, remove the protective backing from one side. This will be the side will be working on. Now grab your rub-ons and add those all over. Be sure to leave empty spaces throughout.
Now grab your ephemera pieces. I chose to use a mix of acetate images and flowers to embellish this tag. Layer those up to form a colorful base.
Do not hesitate to play with height and/or hide parts of your elements. Once you have a base you are happy with, grab one of the Star Bulbs Chipboard Embellishments.
I chose to use a distress oxide sprays to add a base layer of color. I then went in with red embossing powder and added splotches of color to add texture and interest.
Once that is completed, adhere your chipboard bulb to the tag. From there, layer on more elements. I chose to add heat to some of my acetate elements to add movement. This further added interest to the tag as each element was layered on.
I then went back in with a bling piece and a ribbon tie for the top of the tag. There you have it.
I think this tag is so beautiful. Layering elements is something that I have to continuously practice. There is no one way to go about it. Just find elements and a rhythm that works for you.
