Mixed Media Tag Fall/ Autumn

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Fall Autumn Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz 1
Hello, my talented crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "FALL/AUTUMN". Fall is my favorite time of the year since kids are back to school, the weather is cooling down, and the trees and plants change colors. I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix Fall Foliage Thinlits Die for the leaves and embellished the tag with Idea-Ology Photo Booth Vintage Photos.

To start this project, I colored this size 8 tag with Distress Paints using yellow, orange and brown shades on the background, then applied a layer of Crackle Paint on it.

On a piece of white card stock, I die cut lots of fall leaves and colored them with Distress Paint and Simon Says Stamp Ink Pads using different colors, and outlined the leaves with brown Distress Paint and a brush pen. I layered the leaves and the two vintage photos and pasted them on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue.

The metal token and keyhole embellishments were adhered on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue. I splattered some Distress Paints and water mixture on the tag, and pasted Idea-Ology Metallic Stickers as the final touch. 

I really enjoyed making this mixed media tag with the Autumn theme and hope you got inspired with my project. I am looking forward to seeing what you create. Happy crafting and enjoy the beautiful weather!
