Spread Wings in 2017 Butterfly Mixed Media Tag

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Spread Butterfly Wings Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Tim Holtz
Hello, my dear blog friends, welcome to the new challenge for Simon Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, Let's spread wings and fly! We challenge you to create something with wings in your project or you can interpret as starting a new adventure in your life.

I was inspired to create a mixed media tag with die cut butterflies using Sizzix Butterflies Die on Corrugate paper from Tim Holtz Textured Surfaces.

I started this project with die cutting this size 8 tag using corrugate paper with Sizzix tag die. The background was colored with Distress Paints in various shades randomly. and the edges were distressed using a distress tool. I covered the alpha parts with Gesso then Distress Paint after the Gesso was dry.

The butterflies were added on the tag after die cut and colored on the outline. I also attached the metal flower and sentiment stickers on the tag.

For the last step, I splatter some Gesso and water mixture using a pen brush and dripped the mixture using a Drip Dropper from Faber-Castell tools. 

I really enjoyed my new year so far and am ready for the new art adventure in 2017. Hope you join me and create your project with wings! Let's fly!

  11. This is such a fabulous tag! I adore that corrugated texture in the background and I thought it was so clever to mix numbers and words for your "twenty 17." I always see such clever details in your projects!
