Instructions 

There is nothing quite like the “pop” of radically, bright colors. Here we played with some colorful striping on tags for a beautiful effect. Follow along to see how we created these tags with the new Dina Wakley MEdia brights!

Step 1: Because we are creating a color band or spectrum, using a wide brush is handy. Here we chose the 2” wide Dina Wakley MEdia brush and white tags so the colors will remain bright.

Step 2: Spread out evenly a swath of each color on a glass mat or craft sheet. Dip your brush into the paint.
