Mixed Media Acrylic Tag

Hello crafty friends!! Today I am back to share with you this tag that I created using the Acrylic Tag & one of the sheets from the July Scrapbook Kit.


To create this tag I began by fussy cutting all of the images from the cover sheet of the 12×12 papers that came in the Scrapbook kit which are from Scrap Boys Dream Garden collection. Once this was done I applied some white gesso with a foam brush only on the center of the tag and a little on a couple of the corners. Once this air dried I brushed on some DecoArt Media Mister White Shimmer spray.    


I wasn’t able to get a photo of the spray bottle but there is a little shimmer on the area where I applied the gesso. The next step I did was mix some of the Lindy’s Magicals Bougainvillea Fuchsia from a previous kit, with some DecoArt Crackle Paste  and used it on a non brand chevron stencil from my stash. Once that dried I assembled the fussy cut images how I wanted them on my tag , most of the time I will take a photo so that I don’t forget how I had them on my tag or even on layouts.  I used some foam dots on the cut pieces to give the tag a more dimensional look which I like how that turned out.










The last thing that I did was add some vintage photos from the Finnabair Vintage Photobooth Sticker Booklet . I cropped them at the corners with the WeRMemory Keepers Corner Rounder and added some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges just as I did around all of the fussy cut images.  I finished it off by covering the photos and making some splatters using the same DecoArt Media White Shimmer spray all around the finished tag.  Then adding a dainty pink lace from my stash and a piece of twine .

I hope that you have enjoyed my blog post today and you feel inspired to create something wonderful with your acrylic tag. I found many ideas on how to create this tag on Pinterest and YouTube.  I will be back next week to share the project I have done for the July Mood Board Challenge. I hope that you will join in on this challenge. See you all then!!
