{Mixed Media Tutorial} There is Beauty In Simplicity Tag by Tanja

Hi there,it's Tanja here and I would like to show you how to create this tag step by step.

If you are interested in the products I used or other STAMPlorations, ARTplorations or CUTplorations products, I have a special treat for you: use the discount code STAMPGIRLTANJA and get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies.

  • add color using watered-down Gelatos (Margarita Mix, Cotton Candy)

  • accentuate the edges with the help of the Iced Chai Gelato

  • cut out some scallops from old book paper and glue them to the tag and outline them with the black Stabilo All pencil

  • prepare a strip of torn corrugated board, a piece of beige sari silk ribbon and leaves and a flower cut from watercolor paper using the  CUTplorations Trendy Spring Blooms die set. Color the flower and the leaves with watered-down Gelatos (Pistachio, Green Tea, Grape)

  • adhere the elements with hot glue

  • thread a piece of off-white torn seam binding through the hole of the tag and add black splatters with watered-down acrylic paint. Finish with a sentiment from the Small Talk Sticker set

I hope you got inspired and don't forget to join us for our Februrary "Paint it Red" Challenge over at the STAMPlorations Blog. 

Thanks for stopping by.
