Mixed Media Tag by Melina Dahl



It´s Melina here today with a step-by-step tutorial on this mixed media tag.

Here´s what I did:

Step 1 - I used a That's Crafty! white/greyboard tag as my surface and added a piece of tissue paper using That's Crafty! 3D Gloss Gel. I diluted some That's Crafty! white gesso and added to the tag to push the patterns back and take away the glossy surface. 

Step 2 – I blended That's Crafty! Light Texture Paste with Black and Brown Multi Surface paints and added to my tag through That's Crafty! stencil TC8005. Let dry. 

Step 3 – I added crackle paste to two That's Crafty! greyboard feathers. When dry I added That's Crafty! Multi Surface Paint Metallic Antique Gold to both the feathers and the tag. One of my favourite techniques is to cook metallic paint with the heat gun – it gives great texture! 

Step 4 – I diluted some That's Crafty! Teal Multi Surface Paint and added to my tag, I both let it run around and made some splashes. 

Step 5 – I stamped the birds from Lynne's Affirmations Set 3 directly to the tag and stamped the quote from the same stamp set on a scrap piece of paper. I also added a piece of cheese cloth in the middle of the tag. 

Finally I glued my feathers down and used golden wire to frame the quote.

Thank you for stopping by today!
