Post 418: Two Mixed Media Vintage Tags- Joy & Create Art

Hi friends!

I'd like to share 2 Vintage Mixed Media Tags today. These were part of my DT work for Bob n Betty. All the details are here.


Started by cutting one of the vintage design decoupage papers from Bob n Betty’s Vintage Wheels Collection & distressing the edges. Since I was making a pair of tags, I worked on both together, using similar supplies on both but changing the composition a little to create variation. Matted the paper with black cardstock. Did background stamping with archival inks. For the layers, used a few, small bits of papers from the Glam Craft Collection, lace, gauze, buttons, chipboards, paper dolls, flowers, dried hay & stalks, thread & wooden alphabets. Embellished with a few Nuvo drops, Liquid pearl drops & sequins. Then created some white splatter with watered down white gesso. Foam mounted the panels onto white cardstock and threaded some natural twine at the top of the tags. In the end, for shine, added Inka Gold & Prima Waxes in some areas with my fingers.

Here are some photos of the tags:

Tag 1: Joy

Tag 2: Create Art

I am playing along with the following challenges:

1. Creative Embellishments March Challenge (for the twist- used blue roses here, was inspired by the vintage photo, flowers & blue & brown colors in the inspiration photo)

3. Stamplorations March Challenge (was inspired by spring to include butterflies and flowers in the tags)

Thanks a lot for your time :)
Stay Blessed!
