Mixed Media Tag for Yvonne (ScrapBliss)

Hey Everyone! I'm back with a post that is NOT as card WOOHOO! So as I mentioned in my previous post that I had created a mixed media tag. So here it is! Yvonne (Scrapliss) and I decided to do a mixed media tag swap a few months ago so here is mine! I used a bunch of different products on this  tag and I absolutely love the way it came out! For a list of the main products used please check the bottom of this post which will include links list most of the products used.

So with out delay here is collage picture of the tag. I absolutely adore it! I had such a hard time sending this out lol. This tag came together fairly quickly. I say it took me between 1.5-2hrs to create and most of that time was spent coloring the flowers and waiting glossy accents to dry a lil bit before moving on lol.. The background came together quickly as i was impatient and used me heat tool to dry all the layers. So I had the thought of garden theme in my head when I started the tag and of course I had to add metal.. it wouldn't be a project of mine if it didn't have metal somewhere on it. So as in all my projects I like to capture both mine and my swap partners styles/tastes. So the metal represents me and all the colors for my swap partner. I also chose to personalize the tag and add her full name to it with some scrabble tiles. So for the background I used a couple of stencils and sprays which are listed below and chose to keep the flowers different shades as opposed to gesso-ing and spraying with the background as I did with my previous tag. I wanted the metal to stand out as well.
Ok I am rambling enough. I did do a finished project video on this tag. to check it out click HERE.
