Oriental Clear Tags

Oriental Clear Tags, I am always trying to find more creative ways to use the clear acetate tags in the store. There is a bit of a learning curve, some of pastes I try stick and dont flake off, I have had some epic failures with some pastes that are gone by the time the project is finished. This is a set that I started while I was at Maggi’s house on my latest trip there.

 I did make a video of the process while I was at Maggi’s house. Not my normal set up and there is a shadow here and there. But It still gives you the idea and process.

Using the distress grid stencil. I take a thick, old paste, this paste I have had for about 7 years. It’s kinda dry and sticky. And when I go to Maggi’s, I predetermine my projects, and I bring supplies that will work on various different projects I brought. So this paste was used on a few projects that weekend. I also had the goal of using up some old stuff.

Seeing the paste is so thick, I add some gold and silver flakes to the paste. I also add some spray to the background and let it dry. Just a reminder the acetate tags will warp and melt if a person gets close with the heat gun.

Because I had the paper picked out and the bamboo chipboard. I just needed to heat emboss the bamboo to add it to the tag. Using minimal cut out elements from the paper, I simply just make a flower cluster on the front of the tag.

I also have to remember that the back of the tag is going to be possibly shown. I had seen some beautiful projects on display and then when picked up the back is a mess or not completed. I try and think of the project, what it is going to be used for and who it is going to. Most tags are front and back for the most part.

I actually think the back of the tags are even pretty.

 Thank you for stopping by today, I hope this inspires you to get create and step outside of the comfort zone and try some acetate.
