Instructions 

Dina Wakley Media Layered Tags by Laura Dame Step 1

Step 1: Gather your supplies! Choose your favorite Gloss colors and some tags of various sizes. I chose 3 warm colors (Magenta, Lemon, & Tangelo) and 3 cool colors (Sage, Turquoise, & Lapis) plus white.

Step 2: Spray or splatter Glosses on the tags. Let the colors run together to make interesting patterns and texture.

Step 3: Before the tags dry, gently lay a stencil overtop of them and spray with White gloss. This will add the stencil pattern in a more subtle way as the gloss mixes. Let the tags dry.

Step 4: Using botanical stamps and some like colors, build layers on your tags by adding some stamping to the tag backgrounds. Here, Dylusions Archival Inks were used.

Step 6: Using similar colors as the tags, add some stenciling to pieces of typed ledger paper. We’ll use this to build our tag focal points.

Step 7: Layer the fussy-cut botanical stamped images, images from transparencies, and the stenciled papers together to create focal points. Use Heavy Matte Gel Medium to adhere to the tags, or staple with a stapler. Add some phrases as well.
