Mixed Media Tag Creative Embellishments

I would love to share a quick tag I made in between the last few days of homeschooling and getting everything turned in for the end of the school. I woke up early to take over my computer for a few hours and grabbed a large tag and some grunge chipboard to layer on the tag.

I made a short video of the creative process.

I didn’t prep this tag this time, I just started in the raw. Using crackle paste, I randomly applied patches on the background. Once dry, I started with one of the new gear stencil 1, and  gritty black sand paste to add lift and texture, I applied a really thick layer of paste. I had some leftover Hexagon Panel and cut the remainder of that and added more to the background.

I added some finer sand paste in the bare spots. Using the brush as my focal point, I added the pastes as well to that. Building up the brush, I used the steampunk gear wings and the medium gear set.

Using a mould I added the zigzag stitch boarder to the top of the brush to just add a little more detail..

A quick layer of black gesso and I am ready to bring it to life with some colour. Using various rust colours and pastes, I blend until I like what I see.

I thought about putting on a title, but I felt it would take away from the beauty of the mould and brush.

Thank you for stopping by today. Stay safe and be creative.
