Mixed Media Tags with Gelatos

Let's have fun at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, my dear crafty friends. Our DT member Tracy suggested “winged things” as the theme this week. Would you use a favorite bird stamp? Add fairy wings to something? Create a tag featuring a spring scene? accent a scrapbook page with butterflies? There are so many possibilities from airplanes to angel’s wings…

I created two mixed media tags with butterflies for this spring.
 

 
It is always so fun to create spring projects with flowers and butterflies. I cut two watercolor paper tags, and colored the background with Gelatos and water mixture. You can also use the pre cut #8 manila tag.


After pasting the cheese cloth with Gel Medium, I attached the Prima Flowers and some vintage trinkets on these two tags.



The printed sentiment was cut from the Cosmo Cricret stickers. The Tim Holtz Idea-ology Alpha Parts in Ransom were also attached on this tag.



 Love the beautiful colors of Gelatos and the great textures of modeling paste and cheese cloth.
 


The same techniques and similar products were used on my second tag.






I have a goal to make 100 simple and fun tags in 2014 as they are just like the smaller version of my art journal pages to record the colors and techniques I am having fun with. There are already 28 tags and these two tags will be the number 29 and 30. Love what I've completed so far.
