Mixed media tags with a tutorial

 Hello friends!
 I have started off again with blogging regularly so you are going to see me here often :) 
Today I have two mixed media tags to show you all I created this as the DT project for Crafters corner blog. 
I  have also shared a pictorial tutorial there so please hop over and leave a comment if you like it. 

Here are a few pics.. 

 My Lindys sprays always come in handy with any mixed media project. God! I love them sooo much :)

 Love those Prima embellishments <3

Here is a pictorial tutorial  for the same-


 I used some scrap cardstock paper that I had randomly misted/sprayed using Lindys stamp gang sprays. I had a big sheet that was spoiled as I spilled a lot of my mist of it.Then it became my testing sheet for mists and finally I decided to make it my base for tags. 
 Isn't that a great way to reuse what you always thought as scrap? I simply loved using this as my base. More so as I could make use of something that was totally a waste. You can use almost any colours of sprays you wish to.

I cut this sheet into 4 rectangular tag shapes using my We R memory Keepers trim and score board. This is a trimmer cum score board in one and is a good buy if you are looking for something affordable and compact as it it is a two in one at the cost of one equipment and is fold-able at the same time thus saving storage space.

Step 2:

 I distressed the edges of the tags using the Prima comfort craft distressing tool. I just love using this tool for giving distressed edges to my paper. This is so versatile you will sure fall in love with this tool. It is by far my most favourite purchase of all times in tools!

 Step 3:

I stacked the smaller tag shape on the lager one and did this with both the sets . One of them I glued down with white glue easily available in the market. You may use the Aleene's tacky glue which have really great reviews.  and the second one I used the double sided foam tape. It is one of the best ways to give dimension.

Step 4:

I did some stamping on the tags using some black archival ink and Kaisercraft dictionary meanings stamp.

Step 5:

Added some modelling/texture paste with Crafters workshop microbial stencil and spatula.

 Step 6:

 Heat dry with Rangers heat it tool

Step 7:

Added some mist on the stencilled area again . I chose Sweet violet purple teal starburst spray from Lindy's stamp gang. Any colour spray can be used here.

Step 8:

I looked at how I wanted my embellishments to go. 

Step 9:

 Finally start adhering the embellishments. I have used quite a few Prima embellishments and flowers you see here.
Prima wood embellishments- Leaves and mushrooms
Prima Typo bulbs 
Prima small typo bulbs
Prima bird houses
Mulberry flowers- Poppy flower
                            Micro roses
                         Rose buds
                             Curved roses

 Step 10:

 Fussy cut some gorgeous butterflies from the Pion design paper- Paris flea market- Postcards using my Tonic scissors. Another of my HOT FAVOURITE tools! 
I then adhered them on the tag using white glue.

Step 11:

Once my butterflies where in place I applied some diamond dust and
  Prima art ingredient- Granite Mica flakes randomly to give some interest to the composition. Also added a few rhinestones here and there.

Step 12:

 I punched a hole on the top centre portion of the tag using the We r memory keepers crop a dile punch and misted some seam binding ribbon using the Lindy's sparys using the Yellow Rose of Texas and Hottie patoite Hot pink starburst spray and Mowed lawn distress ink.
Next was just pulling the ribbon through the punched hole and tying the knot. 

Supplies used-

We R memory Keepers trim and score board
Lindys stamp gang sprays
Prima comfort craft distressing tool
Double sided foam tape
Black archival ink
Kaisercraft dictionary meanings stamp.
modelling/texture paste 
Crafters workshop microbial stencil
Rangers heat it tool.

                                               Sweet violet purple teal
                                               Rusty lantern lime

Smile- Mixed media layout with a tutorial

Hello friends!

Hope you all are doing good. 
Today I have new mixed media layout to share with you all. I created this for Crafters Corner blog and also shared a tutorial. 
You can see the post here.

Have a look at the finished layout-


I started with Pion design paper- Paris Flea market- Rose du jardin. It has a wonderful script on one side and a beautiful pattern with roses on the other .I decided to go with the script side as my base.

Next I cut the paper in half along one side using my We R memory keepers trim and scoreboard and distressed all the edges of both halves of paper with my Prima Comfort craft Distressing tool. 
This is one of my most favourite tools any day. The Prima Comfort Craft Distressing tool comes with four different distressing attachments and all of these give different effects. I used the blade on the side to distress my page edges.

Next I gave a generous cost of Sakura gesso on my entire paper.  Gesso is basically a primer and prevents the soaking of inks and mists into paper thereby giving gorgeous vibrant results.

 I dried this using my Rangers heat it tool- a must have for mixed media projects!

I also punched out a strip of12 inch X 1 inch size using the Martha Stewart -Doily lace border punch and  the Pion design-Paris flea market Pink fabric paper and reattached my base paper with this border in between.

Next I took out my Lindys stamp gang starburst sprays in Cape cod coral, Hottie patottie hot pink,Sea mint green and Sweet Violet purple teal and sprayed randomly on the paper. I dried this using Rangers heat tool again

Next in process was taking out my stamps and stencils. I using the Kaisercraft Dictionary meanings texture stamp and Magnolias stencil from Prima. This is a new stencil in the shop and has these lovely flower and rose patterns. I am so in love with the design that I am thinking of making it the star of my project next time. Love it totally! 

I used black Archival ink for stamping. Archival ink does not bleed on application of inks/mists or water and this is what I wanted for my project.

I used the Pion design-Paris Flea Market- Pink fabric paper , Tags paper  and Post cards paper to make some layers behind my photo.

I used the crackle paste by Prima with the Magnolia stencil and gave some textures on the page randomly using the spatula.

This is how I prepared my background basically.  I also did some stencilling with Prima flourish stencil later once my layout was almost done to add more texture.
I embellished my layout with some mulberry flowers and Leaves & Mushrooms- laser cut wood veneers from Prima. Also used a resin embellishment and clear glass cabochons.
My title- 'Smile' is a Heidi swapp acrylic word.I am so in love with the font! 

Here  are a few close ups of the layout-
