Tamara Dinius who lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and chocolate lab believes that mixed media allows for a broad range of styles and anyone can find success in this form of artistic expression. While to her Mixed Media is all about creativity, she know too well that Mixed Media Art Tags are created using scraps of papers, old art work, music sheets, and other items that add texture and depth to the tags. And how does she achieve all achieve all this?
- Add the assorted scraps to an old manila folder. Besides, any type of adhesive medium will work.
- Add the scraps to your manila folder in a haphazard manner and once dry, layer a glaze of paint over the top to tone down the first layer.
- Use a stencil and acrylic paint to create additional depth and interest to your tags. On this, use a paint color that is dominant in your scraps of paper.
- Using your favorite stamp and ink pad add additional interest by stamping your project. You can also add acrylic paint using stencils or other items.
- To finish, use additional fabric and papers to back the tags. Using a zigzag stitch, sew around the perimeter of the tag. Punch a hole and add your ribbon. Your tags are now ready to use as luggage tags, gift tags, decorative tags, or other item.
