Whenever there is a 5th Friday in a month - we have a Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey where several of the Creative Guides create tags for everyone's inspiration. This month I'm one of the Creative Guides sharing a tag and here it is.
I started with my background which I created using the cling wrap technique. I used a 12" x 14" piece of watercolor paper and 2 colors of acrylic paint - I used Americana acrylic paints in Mint Julep Green and Milk Chocolate. I painted the colors on in broad strokes, brushing in different directions and kept adding watered down paint until the page was covered. (you want it to be a little wet)
Then I laid a piece of cling wrap (Saran Wrap) over the paper and scrunched it up pressing with my fingers.
I removed the cling wrap and let the panel dry, and got this lovely distressed look.
I die cut a piece of my painted panel using Tim's Tag and Bookplate die. I added several strips of washi tapes and stapled on 2 pieces of lace.
I stamped one of Alison's stamps from her EAB05 set by PaperArtsy onto the tag. I cut a slightly larger piece of black cardstock and layered the tag to it. I looped a piece of wrinkled seam tape through the hole.
I colored 3 Mirrored Stars with Adirondack Lettuce Ink and added them to the tag.
I colored the Paperdoll girls using Ranger Distress Markers in Brushed Corduroy, Peeled Paint and Spun Sugar and popped them onto the tag with foam dots. I added several Metallic Quotations/Quotes stickers.
So please stop by the A Vintage Journey Blog today and be inspired by all the Tag Friday Tags the Creative Guides have created for you!
