Tag Fun

Have you ever checked out Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas Challenge?  I usually do one tag for it but this year I have done three (maybe next year I can get to 12).  The tags in the challenge are totally delightful mixed media creations! Here is one of my tags which was all made with DRS Designs Images.


This one was made by painting up some corrugated cardboard with white acrylic paint.  Then I let that dry and used a Prima zig zag stencil and some modeling paste to create the texture in between the ridges.  Next, I stamped four Giant Poinsettias, colored them up with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons and layered them.  For the middle I took some gel medium and formed three round dots which I covered in gold glitter (took forever to dry but I love the dimension on them).  For a sentiment, I used part of the new DRS Designs' All is Calm Christmas Greeting.  I am out of time this morning so I will post the other two tonight.

Hugz,

Nancy

  6. Amazing depth and texture for your tag base Nancy. Looks awesome with the white acrylic paint, but then you took it even further with your stenciled embossing paste. Very cool!! Your layered poinsettia is so pretty .. love the glittery center. I have TH distress crayons, but have not had much luck using them yet --- you've done a wonderful job! Thanks so much for sharing at my tag event! xx
