Let's Celebrate


It's Stencil Sunday!  And just a quick reminder about our current Mixed Media Challenge before I get into my tag details.

Would love to have you join us for the mixed media challenge this month.  As always, it's an anything goes challenge that must be a mixed media piece...tags, art journal pages, home decor, etc....anything but a card.  The winner will receive a $15 STAMPlorations gift certificate or 2 ARTplorations stencils. And the top picks receive an ARTplorations stencil of their choice.


Thought it would be fun to play with a black tag today and show you how to add some color.  Not all mediums will show up, but some work really well.  I started off by using some acrylic paint through my ARTplorations Confetti Circles stencil in a deep turquoise color.  Once that was dry, I added some Inka Gold in a pink shade through my Bubbles stencil. Next I added some crackle paste through my Happy Flowers stencil.  Impatience caused me to dry it with a heat gun...so just a couple of large crackles appeared. I added some color to the flowers with m PITT artist pens...just scribbled on the color and then spread it around with my finger.  

Added a little banner sentiment from STAMPlorations Balloons and Banners (that's one of the Dee's Artsy Impressions designs) and a bit of ribbon to finish off the tag.

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
