One of my favorite tags is this always tag. I think it might because of all the layers. Layers of elements, mediums, and colors. I love the pop of red against the blue & yellow. It's primary in its roots without being childish in its tones. Let's take a closer look at the layers and dissect them a bit.
- the tag was first coated with a light layer of gesso and then painted with some paints & Maya mists.
- I then added some book pages for a bit of texture. I love how they look on their own but also with a little light wash of spray inks. To keep the paper from soaking in too much color, i first seal it with gel medium and then apply the wash of spray inks.
- the vintage bird is a gel medium transfer. I love rubbing off extra bits to give it that peeled vintage look, almost like peeled wallpaper.
- layers, layers, layers. layers of trim at the bottom, three to be exact. layers of stamps. Do you spot the frame & sand pipers? layers of rub-ons. 3 is always a good design number and completes the visual triangle.
- antique alterable scallop trim turned into a flower using some Maya mists. I layered the trim twice on a circle foundation to create this stunning flower. the alterable bingo number also ties in with my color scheme. I added the final touches of brown with the chipboard title and gingham trim.
