Mixed Media Tag Trio

Welcome to the weekend and a Globecraft & Piccolo project! Today I have a trio of tags to share. When you're short on time, but still want to make a little something try a few tags!


Each of these tags were made using the same techniques. Supplies listed below. Using an old credit card or gift card spread a little gesso on the Rectangle Bezels, moving the paint up and down and back and forth with the card. It will leave an uneven layer - exactly what we want!


Using 2 colors of 3D Enamel Gel, add another layer. Spread with the card. Because the 3D Gels are transparent, the gesso layer will show through adding interest to our mixed media tags!


Below is what the Rectangle Bezels look like after they've dried. The 3D Gel colors used left to right:
Rose Pearl + Satin Gold
Mars Black + Satin Gold
Turquoise + Titanium White


I used Embossing Enamel Powders (Ruby Red Slippers and Mossy Glen) on the roses and 'colored' the open spaces (Deep Red) and 'crown' using (Satin Gold) 3D Gel. Wouldn't this make a cute tag for a new baby girl?


I think this tag is my favorite! I love the way the background looks like the river bottom - just perfect for my fish...and it was a 'big one!' The fish are painted using gesso and 3D Enamel Gels (Satin Gold and Rose Pearl).


I love the beach and this tag was fun to put together! These accents are definitely sea worthy, wouldn't you say? The seahorse is coated in Glastique Gloss and the steering wheel in Burnt Umber 3D Gel.


I like these simple, but you can dress the tags up by adding jump rings and beads or even smaller Accents.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Inky hugs,
Angi

Awesome tags. I love how you used the gels to color the backgrounds. They are all wonderful but the fish are my favorite.
