Journey Tag with Tutorial

Hey there Peeps. Well I'm recovering from a little too much holiday fun and getting myself back to the workday.  I created this tag tutorial with lots of lovely chippies and some mixed medias and ribbon and flowers.

Please enjoy this tutorial I've created so you can create a tag just like this for yourself....

Prepare all pieces except the wood charm with a white base coat.
Begin layering on an additional base coat with gold paint, copper paint and black archival ink.
Add newspaper patterned paper to the back of the arch.
Add shading and contouring to the wings with Distress Ink.  Layer on pattern with text stamp and black ink.

Color back of arch with multiple shades of Gelatos. Blend well.
Coat remaining pieces with gold paint. Allow to dry. Add copper colored texture paint being aware of leaving some parts thick and some thin. Once dry dab sections with Steel Luxe paint.
Secure top of arch to base.
With glue secure a tattered piece of cheesecloth.
Clip Photo Reel in half and add to arch.
Sprinkle Micro Beads onto any glue still showing.
Secure wings with middles touching.
Layer on pocket watch, gears and key.
Add a variety of flowers in coordinating colors.

Finish tag with wood charm sentiment and tie off ribbon trim with twine.

Okay that's all for me. I hope I've inspired you to create a mixed media tag of your own. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
