Mixed Media Tag Spring Journey Play with Paint

Hello, my talented crafty friends, I am so glad that you are back. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "Play with Paint". Since Spring is officially here, I'd like to create this week's project using the sprint theme. I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Distress Paints and Daniel Smith Watercolor Paints, and decorated it with Sizzix Geo Spring Time Thinlits Die and Prima Marketing Dark Romance Midnight Garden Flowers.

On this size 8 tag, I first applied the modeling paste using a palette knife to create the texture on the background. After the modeling paste was dry, I applied different colors of Distress Paints on the tag. Some Tim Holtz Rubs On texts were added on the background of the tag. 

On a piece of watercolor paper, I painted some Daniel Smith watercolors. I die cut the hummingbird and pasted it on the colored watercolor paper with Tombow Mono Glue. The hummingbird was cut and pasted on the tag with foam tabs. 

The Prima flower embellishments were arranged and attached on the tag using Glue Dots. The metal embellishment was colored with Distress Paints and attached on the tag. 

I really love to create with the spring theme and play with paint. I hope you liked my project and got inspired to create your painted project! Join us and have fun!

This was a great project! I've been interested to see these geometric creature dies in use, so I loved seeing what you did with that gorgeous hummingbird. I think the geometrics look amazing next to the florals.
