Creating tags can be a fun and easy way to play with your supplies, especially when you’re feeling stuck. There’s something about the size and simplicity of a tag that brings out creativity, plus once you start, it’s hard to stop!
Step 1: Gather an assortment of tags and paints. Using a 1 ½ inch brush, swipe some acrylic paint onto the tags. For these tags, Cheddar, Eggplant, Fuschia, and Marine were used.
Step 2: Using a mini blending tool, stencil some brighter colors over the tags. Here Stoked, Turquoise, Sage, and Carnation were used.
Step 3: Using Ultra Thick Gel Medium, collage some tissue and transparencies to the tags.
Step 4: Look through the Collage Sparks books for some colors that go well with the tags. Cut out different shapes, such as botanicals, or words and attach them with a stapler or more gel medium.
Step 5: Look through the Typed Ledger Papers or Tim Holtz Chipboard Quotes for some sentiments and attach them to the tags with a stapler or gel medium.
Step 6: Add some splatters using Gloss Spray. Here White, Black, and Ancient were used.
