{Mixed Media Tutorial} With Brave Wings Tag by Tanja

Hi there, it's Tanja here and I would like to show you how to create this Mixed Media Tag step by step:

  • cut out a tag from watercolor paper using the biggest of the CUTplorations Stitched Tags
  • cover the tag with white gesso
  • apply Prima Marketing Modeling Paste through the ARTplorations Flower Burst Large stencil and let it dry thoroughly

  • add color with Brushos Turquoise and let this layer dry as well
  • glue down some strips of torn patterned paper
  • apply heavy white gesso to random spots of the tag and over the patterned paper in order to let it blend with the rest of the tag
  • grunge up the edges with a black Stabilo All pencil

  • adhere some birch bark, one of the CUTplorations For the Birds and some thread behind it with hot glue
  • dye a piece of torn seam binding with Distress Ink Mermaid Lagoon
  • and add a sticker from the Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker set

I hope you got inspired.
