Mixed Media Tag In My Garden Beauty in Simplicity

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media My Garden Bird Cage Bonanical Flowers Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz 1

Hello my beautiful crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge! I hope you all had fun playing with us last week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Chalellenge. This week, our theme is "IN MY GARDEN".  I was looking forward to spring and created a mixed media garden tag with a bird using Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Caged Bird and decorated with some beautiful flowers using Idea-Ology Botanical Paperie.

I started this project with die cutting the heavy chipboard using Tim Holtz Caged Bird, Tag and Bookplate dies and Big Shot. 

On the background of the tag, I stenciled the modeling paste over the Tim Holtz Mini Stencil using a palette knife. The tag was colored with Tim Holtz Distress Paints, and distressed with Simon black ink pad. 

The bird, cage and bookplate were all colored using Distress Paints, and outlined using a black Pigma Brush Pen. I stamped some text image on the bird image and distressed the book plate using Simon black ink pad.

The flower embellishments were colored with Distress Markers. I layered these embellishments and pasted them on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue and Adhesive tabs for dimension. The sentiment stickers were pasted, and some splatter of Distress Paint and water mixture was added as the final touch.

  2. Beautiful! Love all the wonderful colors on your tag, Meihsia, and how so many of the elements hang off the edges - it adds a lot of interest. I've been starting to hear the birds singing here, and your tag reminds me of that. hugs, Maura
