Hello fellow crafters!
This is Jaya here today on the Crafters corner blog and I have a tag to share with you all.
This is a mixed media tag that I created. Have a look.
I also have a pictorial tutorial you can see later in the post
Here is a pictorial tutorial for the same-
I used some scrap cardstock paper that I had randomly misted/sprayed using Lindys stamp gang sprays. I had a big sheet that was spoiled as I spilled a lot of my mist of it.Then it became my testing sheet for mists and finally I decided to make it my base for tags.
Isn't that a great way to reuse what you always thought as scrap? I simply loved using this as my base. More so as I could make use of something that was totally a waste. You can use almost any colours of sprays you wish to.
I cut this sheet into 4 rectangular tag shapes using my We R memory Keepers trim and score board. This is a trimmer cum score board in one and is a good buy if you are looking for something affordable and compact as it it is a two in one at the cost of one equipment and is fold-able at the same time thus saving storage space.
I distressed the edges of the tags using the Prima comfort craft distressing tool. I just love using this tool for giving distressed edges to my paper. This is so versatile you will sure fall in love with this tool. It is by far my most favourite purchase of all times in tools!
I stacked the smaller tag shape on the lager one and did this with both the sets . One of them I glued down with white glue easily available in the market. You may use the Aleene's tacky glue which have really great reviews. and the second one I used the double sided foam tape. It is one of the best ways to give dimension.
I did some stamping on the tags using some black archival ink and Kaisercraft dictionary meanings stamp.
Heat dry with Rangers heat it tool. You can get this heating tool at the best price in the Crafters corner shop.
Added some mist on the stencilled area again . I chose Sweet violet purple teal starburst spray from Lindy's stamp gang. Any colour spray can be used here.
I looked at how I wanted my embellishments to go.
Finally start adhering the embellishments. I have used quite a few Prima embellishments and flowers you see here.
Mulberry flowers- Poppy flower
Fussy cut some gorgeous butterflies from the Pion design paper- Paris flea market- Postcards using my Tonic scissors. Another of my HOT FAVOURITE tools!
I then adhered them on the tag using white glue.
Once my butterflies where in place I applied some diamond dust and
Prima art ingredient- Granite Mica flakes randomly to give some interest to the composition. Also added a few rhinestones here and there.
I punched a hole on the top centre portion of the tag using the We r memory keepers crop a dile punch and misted some seam binding ribbon using the Lindy's sparys using the Yellow Rose of Texas and Hottie patoite Hot pink starburst spray and Mowed lawn distress ink.
Next was just pulling the ribbon through the punched hole and tying the knot.
