Creative Artiste #29 August 2017

Happy Friday everyone.
Today I have my August post for 
We are a challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. So, as long as you like to use various mediums on your creations we'd love to see you enter the challenge.
A big Thank You to everyone who entered Challenge #28 in July. Your projects were fabulous and our winner has been announced on the blog. 

Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"

This month we are being sponsored by:

Maja Design

I have used some of my gorgeous Maja papers to make three vintage style tags.

The papers I've used are from the 6"x 6" (15cm x 15cm) Sofiero collection and the tag bases were all hand cut from greyboard.

The base layer on this tag was gessoed, painted with pale pink acrylic and second generation text stamped with coffee Archival. I then splattered on white gesso and painted the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. The next layers are torn Sofiero paper with texture paste through a stencil and some vintage lace. I added some torn strips of paper before fixing the topper in place. A seam binding bow with cord and a handmade flower with cheesecloth finished this tag.

The base of the second tag was painted and inked with Broken China DO then a torn piece of Sofiero paper. I added half a die-cut doily and some cheesecloth coloured with DOs then some more paper before fixing the topper in place and splattering some white gesso. A seam binding bow, some cord and three handmade clay roses finished this tag.

The base of this final tag was created in the same way as the first. I then added half a die-cut doily coloured with Worn Lipstick and Vintage Photo DOs and a couple of pieces of torn Sofiero papers.
I added the topper and splattered some white gesso. Some seam binding, cord. a lace applique and a homemade clay button finished the tag.
