Mixed Media Tag Travel

newchallenge sssm

Hello, everyone! Let's "Explore The world"! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we are creating the WORLD theme. You might like to make a winter wonderland project with the North and South Poles as your inspiration, or maybe you would prefer to go on a desert safari or an underwater voyage of discovery. This challenge is open to so many different themes.

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Idea-Ology Paper Stash Correspondence and Souvenir Adornments.

To start this project, I cut a tag using the paper from Tim Holtz Paper Stash Correspondence, and pasted it on the size 8 manila tag so that it would be sturdy to add mixed media on it.

On the background of the tag, I stenciled the modeling paste over Tim Holtz layering stencil using a palette knife. The edges of the tag and the stenciled area were distressed with ink pads and Art Dauber. I applied Tim Holtz white crayon around the stenciled are for more texture.

After the metal embellishments were colored with Distress Paints, I attached them on the tag using Tombow glue.

Some sentiments were attached with Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers. I really enjoy traveling and had fun creating this tag for this challenge. Hope you like it and got inspired to join us. Happy crafting!
