I'm sharing some tag art for Xyron today. Thanks for visiting!
Tag Art for Xyron
These are samples that I made for Xyron's booth at a recent trade show. Being on the Xyron Design Team several years ago was a great experience. When they asked me to make these samples, it was my pleasure. It's always inspiring to check out the booth samples at trade shows and see how designers use products in original ways.

Free Distress Ink Blending Checklist
I've spelled out the steps below, but click here to get the free downloadable Distress Ink Blending Checklist I created for newsletter subscribers.
My first step was to add adhesive to some torn book paper using Xyron's 3″ Sticker Maker.
After adhering the sticky piece to my tag, I tore some extra small pieces and ran them through the machine. I added those to the other tag. This machine handles delicate papers really well. The adhesive is re-positionable, which is a HUGE plus for me. I can change my mind and lift it up and start over with no trouble.
This little square picks up any stray adhesive ‘goobers' quite easily.
I cut the butterfly and flower from scraps colored with Dylusions Ink Sprays, and used Distress Ink to color my tags.
A Tim Holtz (Sizzix) die creates the butterfly and my flower comes from a Wendy Vecchi stamp. I used the Xyron machine to adhere the flower and glue dots for the butterfly.
Lots of stenciling adds interest over the tags and the book papers. I added corrugated cardboard to the base of the flower tag, and embossed the word ‘Dream' on the butterfly tag. To pull them together, I added some silver metal bits on each.
Mixed Media Art Membership Group
I host the Mixed Media Art Membership Group, a monthly membership that includes facilitated learning through a Project of the Month (with closed-captioned video instruction), Themed Challenge of the Month, a live Zoom Create-Along Session where we all work on our art together, and lots of resources such as the Project Vault, Technique Vault and Resource Library. Best of all is the supportive and inspiring community we enjoy in our private Facebook Group and the gated private forum on the site where I host the videos and resources.
The group is only open for new members a few times a year, so please add your name to the waiting list to be the first to know when the doors open again. Click here to add your name to the waiting list.
