BEAUTIFUL TAGS: a complete tutorial!

Hello friends,

 This is Anila over the blog today,
and i have some tags tutorial to share with you today,
using different techniques and mediums.

fk

 

 



Who doesn’t love tags… ūüôā
Stampers have used tags for years to create mini works of art.
A tag is small that is not too  intimidating very easy and fun to create..
that is .. it’s okay, even if you mess up.
Tags are great for experimenting with new techniques, too.

So I created these three easy yet fun tags with stamps, inks,
sprays ,stencils¬†and shimmer pastes…

¬†Here’s a look at the completed tags:

So lets begin with the tutorial…
(* picture heavy post!)

step1
 
To begin with, I took white colored¬†ready tags…
You can even cut them from a white Cardstock,
of any size to create your own custom sized tags.

Ready made TAGS
step2

Took the tag, secured it on the table with washi tape.
Then Secure the stencil over the tag with washi tape.
The stencil that i have used for this tag is from craftyscrappers
and its called,
create-a-scene(sunburst)
cc-stnl-12_694x768
CREATE-A-SCENE(SUNBURST)
step3

Take sufficient amount of shimmer paste (Separate stencil and shimmer paste for each tag) and evenly spread it across/through the stencil.
The shimmer paste that i am using here is called,
 2
step4
 
Repeat the same for all the three tags.
After applying a generous layer of the shimmer paste,
I let it air-dry. (You can heat-set it too!) 
(this is how they look…)
3
step5
 
 
Once dry I sprayed two of the tag with the coordinating shimmer sprays from my DT kit. (Spray each tag separately)
The shimmer pastes and shimmer sprays are extremely versatile and beautiful in itself.
The shimmer sprays that i used here are,
SHIMMER SPRAY-Grape juice and SHIMMER SPRAY-Sweet Pumpkin
(this is how they look…)
 
4
step6
 
For the third tag, I coloured the background using distress ink. 
(Applying Distress inks on the craft mat and picked up the color with water brush) 
 

5

step7
 
Let the tags dry again. 
(this is how they look…)
 

6

step8
 
Next, I started layering the tags with pollens and lots of flowers.
 7
step9
 
I tried to use the matching colored flowers and pollens for each tag.
Like this stem color tag with coordinating¬†flowers…
8
 
step10
 
I stamped a seperate sentiment for each tag from Craftyscrappers stamp sets
and mounted them on the tag using foam adhesive.
I tied twines along with coordinating ribbon through the punched hole.
Lastly added matching sequins from craftyscrappers to add some elements.

Here’s are some of the close-ups of the tags:

A Brief on how we’ve created a mixed media baby boy album insert.

 For this insert, we first stamped various images on a white cardstock with versamark.
We then sprinkled black embossing powder and heat set it.
After this, we sprayed the ocean waves shimmer spray on our craft mat and misted it with water.
We overturned the cardstock and moved it around on the spray to lift the color. We then heat set it.
Next, using the diamonds stencils, we sprayed the bitter lemon shimmer spray color randomly on the page and heat set it.
We then picked the argyle stencil and sprayed the sweet pumpkin shimmer spray color again randomly.
We then stamped the ducks from the ” Baby prince & princess” stamp set¬†on the top and bottom continuously with black archival ink.
Next, we distressed the edges of the page.
We mounted this inside the album with some two- way tape.

INNOVATIVE BUSINESS NAME PLATE :a complete tutorial!

Hello Friends,

I am back again on Craftyscrappers blog with my new mixed media project.
This one is a business name plate which I did recently for a friend
who is into Saree business.
I have used the super amazing and gorgeous products from Craftyscrappers which is launched recently in the name of  
“Shimmer sprays and Shimmer Pastes”
I totally loved using them,before I talk more on the versatility of these products,
let me show you some of the pictures of my project first.

Here’s the complete Business name plate

So lets begin with the tutorial now….
step1
To make this one, I took a cardboard piece of size 7×8 inches and started pasting some scrap thin sheets of various colors card stocks….
most of these strips were like leftovers from my earlier projects.
 
1a
step2
After that I took the Victorian stencil by Craftyscrappers and used it on the panel along with Blush shimmer paste and let it dry.
We can heat dry also these shimmer pastes with the help of heat tool in case want to fasten the process.
2a
 
step3
 
Once my paste dried,
I sprayed the shimmer paints on the paste…I still feel my picture is not justifying the real beauty of these sprays…
these sprays blends beautifully with the paste and cover desired surface.
I have used
Bitter lemon and Ocean waves shimmer sprays.
 
a

 
step4
Then I took a pattern sheet cut it first and then did hand tearing to make it look a little more designer.

step5
 
Then i pasted it on the panel using Matt medium glue.
Next I used a
lady stamp from Craftyscrappers ,
hand painted it giving it a tint of gold by using Inka gold and creating Indian gold thread weaved Saree,
I have often seen my mom wearing such Sarees but getting the feel on paper was real fun to try.
Once all done ,have fussy cut it and pasted on the panel as shown in the pictures below…

step6
 
On the borders,I have used Washi tape¬† ¬†by Craftyscrappers…
this tape added much desired shiny border to my project.

Paint the background
 
Once dried, I painted its surface with white chalk paint ( you can use acrylics too) using sponge and let it air dry.

step3
Add Texture

Then I added the texture with Crafty Scrappers “Shimmer Paste” ( color – Dreams) using “Rose Bunch” stencil. You have to be very patient while doing this step…
I applied the Shimmer paste one side at a time and before applying it to another side ,
I let it air dry ( You can use heat gun to fasten this process :))
