Mixed Media Christmas Tag Let It Snow

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Christmas Tag Let It Snow Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz

Hi, crafters! I hope you all had a great weekend. The weather is getting really cold here in Dallas and I feel like we are skipping Fall and go strait to Winter. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "LET IT SNOW", and we challenge you to add some snow on your project.

I was inspired to make a mixed media tag using Prima Marketing Snowflake Paste to create the snowy scene and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Wreaths Adornments.

To start this project, I applied various shades of blue Distress Paints on the tag to create the sky background, then applied Prima Snowflake Paste on the bottom of the tag to create snow over the ground with a palette knife. To create the snowflake from the sky, I applied Snowflake Paste over the Tim Holtz mini stencil.

I colored Tim Holtz Wreath Adornment, Typography and Decorative Deer Findings with Distress Paints using Prima watercolor pen. The Prima flowers were layered and adhered on the tag. All the embellishments were attached on the tag using the foam tape and Tombow Mono Glue.

To finish off this tag, I splattered the white Distress Paint on the tag and outlined the tag using gold and black paints. I hope you got inspired by my Christmas tag and create your project with some snow on it. Join us and happy crafting!
