Mixed Media Tags with Susanne

Hi there!

Susanne writing today and I've to share a step out tutorial for a mixed media tag.

I used the lovely owls from the "Owl do Good" stamp set as my focal point.

Here are the step by step instructions:

Cut a tag from a colourful background. I used Brushos together with Colourcraft Aztec Metallics to make mine. Any kind of watercolour background will work.
Use PanPastel plus stencils to add some more texture.

Add gesso on some areas and cover it with acrylic paints when it's dry.

Add some background stamping to the tag and black and white splatters.

Finally add your focal image(s).

Here are two more tags I made with the same technique:

I hope you like my tags!
Have a nice weekend, Susanne.

Stamps from Rubber Dance:
