Mixed Media Tag Tutorial
Welcome! It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a mixed media tag tutorial with you and I’m happy today’s the day. I've used Distress Spray Stains for this tutorial.
I tuned into one of Tim Holtz’s Facebook Live videos over the weekend, and pulled out some mixed media products to work with while I watched Tim’s demos. It was a fun and relaxing way to spend a few hours, especially during these crazy times.
Here’s the finished project:
This is how I applied the color:
You can use many different spray inks on a project like this. I used Distress Spray Stains. I like using the Glass Media Mat when working with wet inks, although non-stick craft sheets are great too.
Controlling the Color
After my tag was dry, I applied additional color through stencils.
I did this with both Distress Inks and Archival Inks, using an ink blending tool and stencils. I like the control I gain over color application this way. Be sure to use a light touch. You can always go in and add richer hues on top. Alternatively, you can go in with a heavy hand right from the start if you are confident you want a deep shade to start.
You may wonder about that wood stamp. I had a few questions after sharing the project in real time, so I’ll write about it here, too. It’s been in my stash for ages, and I think the manufacturer (Rubber Stamp Ave) is, sadly, out of business.
Keep in Touch
Thanks for the visit! I hope you enjoyed my mixed media tag tutorial.
