Just be yourself

Hi Guys,
Jess here today with a simple and fun technique. 

 These guys started off as an experiment.  I wasn't quite sure what I was thinking would work, but after playing for a bit I love how they turned out.

Use the smallest crown from the Steampunk Shape Set.  I embossed this using a couple colors from Emerald Creek.  

Put on his fancy pants.  
Paint your fragment.  I used Dina Wakley's Magenta here.  This one is from the Mixed Media Fragments 2 set.  In the final product you can see I also used pieces from the Mixed Media Fragments 1 set.  I used the same technique on all three tags.  I used a foam brush and dabbed on the color to get some texture in the paint. 

Use Distress Ink to create your tag.  I used the same four colors on all three tags.  

Flick on paint in black, silver, and copper.  Add Black Soot Distress Ink and Crayon on the edges.  

Flick your fragment with paint at the same time.  I also just tapped the brush in various spots. 
Glue your Fragment to your tag.  Use foam tape to adhere your paperdoll.  Add your sentiment and any other final touches.  

Super fun and really easy project.
