Mixed Media Christmas Tags-FINGERS BEWARE!


Are you ready to have some fun??
 
 I had to piece together a gift box to wrap a gift and had some pieces left over. What's a girl to do?
Cut them up into tag sizes!! Of course!
After I had cut them into various sizes, I covered them with black gesso. Then the fun began!!
 I rubbed some white gesso on-with my fingers....got some stencils out and did some stenciling with Traditions Acrylic Paint.  Don't forget to turn your stencil over & dab the left over paint somewhere too!
Found an old tooth brush (I thought about using my husbands-but decided that would be a Grinch attitude & since this is Christmas-I'd better be nice or Santa won't come!)
Flicked some white Traditions Acrylic Paint around (I didn't use my finger -I scraped it with an old credit card)
 I ripped up some small pieces of Tim Holtz tissue paper & some left over cello paper with white swirls and glued onto various spots with Liquitex Matte Medium Gel.  Took a white gel pen and did some doodling as well.
When completely dry-I embellished them!  Used some stuff in my stash.  Sentiments from Stampin Up.  Cardstock from MME.  Seam binding.  Diecuts from K and Company.
 Used Kaisercraft Christmas Tradition designer paper and made the angel.  Cut the holly leaves with my cricut.
They all turned out great!  They have found a home on my Christmas packages.
I hope this inspires YOU to have some fun and play a little!
