{Mixed Media Tutorial} Melissa Marks Thyme




Hi! Are you headed towards Spring in your part of the world? Or would you like to grow some fresh herbs indoors? I may have a project that will interest you. I've made some herb garden markers to share with you. 

I hope that you enjoy seeing the process I used to create these cute little garden markers and are inspired to do a little crafting of your own.


I used the following STAMPlorations products for this tutorial: 
STAMPlorations: Trendy Leaves 2


1. For the "Thyme marker" I started by die cutting the tag out of heavy white card stock and stenciling a variety of greens and silver ink leaves onto the tag. I also cut out an uppercase "T."






2. I then embellished the herb tag/marker with black permanent marker, gel pens (silver, gold and white) and silver Smooch Spritz.







3. I adhered the "T" and then laminated the tag(s), fussy cut the tag and taped on a rigid push in marker plant stick.





4. I followed the same basic procedure to make the markers for my Parsley, Sage and Rosemary.











Already for my herb pots or garden!

That's all I have for you for today. I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and look forward to reading your comments.

I hope that you have a great day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,
