Distress Resist Spray Distress Oxide “Sister” Art Tag

Distress Resist Spray Distress Oxide “Sister” Art Tag

Hello and Happy Saturday! For today’s video release, I wanted to have another play with tags. After the cat tag I did last weekend I am starting to develop a love of art journal tags. This week I used a 3″ x 6″ manilla tag from “The Paper Studio” I got in one of my clearance hauls. I added a layer of distress oxide and was able to play with the new Tim Holtz distress resist spray. It was a lot of fun. For my assemblage pieces, I chose some of the Tim Holtz paper dolls, quote chips, and ephemera bits. Trying to use up that stash of supplies….so I can get new ones.

Here is a link so you can watch my process on my youtube channel: Sister Art Tag

I hope this will inspire you and give you some ideas for using up your own stash of goodies. Happy Crafting!

“Nosy” Cat Art Journal Tag

“Nosy” Cat Art Journal Tag

Last week I ventured into the world of tags. I will admit I wasn’t sure why folks made tags, or what to do with them once done. Then I got my “Nosy Cat” stamp from Stampendous and knew it needed to go on a tag.

I started the project on a Dylusions tag I had run thru my sewing machine to test it. I then added three colors of distress oxide in “Wilted Violet”, “Broken China” and “Peeled Paint”.

Next, I spritzed some water in my hand and threw it at the tag to achieve some large and small splatter marks. I then ran a paper tower over it.

Once the background was done, I was ready to apply my characters. I had already stamped my nosy cat onto some watercolor scrap paper, along with some other cute cat theme images from a Stampin Up kit I had.

On the nosy cat I added some Dina Wakley scribble stick coloring and edged it with black archival ink.

For the smaller pieces I edged them with contrasting distress oxide colors.

To apply all the parts I used foam dots (adhesive) to make them stand off the tag and give it some fun dimension.

When all the pieces were applied, I edged the tag with my black archival ink and tied some sari fabric scraps as ribbon.

I honestly had so much fun making this I can’t wait to do another one. I am currently on the hunt for dog stamps now to make some for the dog lovers out there.

Below is the video from my YouTube channel to see the full process:
