Mixed Media Tag Time Out

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Time Out Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz 1

Welcome back to my blog, my dear crafty friends! Let's play for the new challenge. This week, at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "TIME OUT". I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Sizzix Weathered Die Bigz Clock Alterations and decorated it with Idea-Ology Story Sticks.

I started this project with coloring this size 8 tag with various shades of Dylusions Acrylic Paints to create the weathered effect using a pen brush. After the paints were dry, I added some Modeling Paste and Crackle Paint to create the texture on the background.

The die cut clock was colored with the same set of Acrylic Paints and added Crackle Paint for the texture. I pasted the clock on the tag and cut the excess to fit the tag. All the metal embellishment were colored using Dylusions Acrylic Paints, too. I pasted these embellishments on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue.

Some Prima Flowers were pasted on the tag to finish off this project. I really enjoy creating this tag for the old weathered effect since I love how it looked worn by long exposure by the weather. 
I hope you like this tag and got inspired to create your "TIME OUT" project and join us this week. Can't wait to see what you make!
