{Mixed Media Tutorial} Quick Tags by MariLynn



Sometimes I work for hours doing mixed media and sometimes I want to make something fast. I have a fast project for you today. 


I started with white cardstock. I die cut two tags using CUTplorations TAG O COFFEE die.



I used cheap water soluble markers and ARTplorations CURVE PLAY stencil. I traced along the edges of the stencil. I used mostly blues.



Then I used more markers and ARTplorations EMANATIONS stencil. I used green this time. 



I moved the EMANATIONS stencil and did blue markers again.



Here is what it looked like after I traced the two stencils. It kinda looks like a mess at this point doesn't it?



Here is where the fun kicks in. I sprayed the tag with water.



While the tag was still really wet, I placed the second tag on top and pushed them together.



When I separated the tags. I noticed that the right lower corner on the left tag needed more spraying. So I sprayed more water and pressed the tags together again.



Here is how it looked after I sprayed it the second time.



The hardest part of this project was waiting for the tags to dry. If you are impatient like me, you can use a heat gun or a hair dryer to dry the tags faster.


Then I stamped on the tags using black stazon ink and TRENDY BIRDS and TRENDY BIRDS 2
