Christmas Mixed Media Tags

Hello. Lisa here!! 
Today it's time to get messy fingers. We are getting out the paints and all the fun stuff!

I'm using this Simple Stories collection - Freezin' Season which you can view here.

I'm creating several different tags all at once.
You can watch me creating them in this video here.

I started off with 10 large white tags and I covered them in a strip of the patterned papered each.

It's them just a layering process. Adding one layer at a time.
A little paint, I used a stencil with paste and then another stencil but with a Dylusions ink spray this time.

I needed to tone them down a little so added some white paint across the middle and then cut all these cute little images out from the Simple Stories papers.

Before I stuck them down and wrapped some cotton around and tied in place to add even more texture.
Texture and layers. That's what it's all about!! 
To finish I went around the outsides with a black pen and added some Glossy Accents in places. I sprinkled the Cosmic Shimmers to the tags and then took a thin paintbrush with water to paint over using the shimmers.
You are left with some amazing results!
I'm so happy with these tags.
I will be using some for a happy mail swap and some to attach to gifts.
They also make great card toppers or use them on your scrapbooking pages.
I hope you have enjoyed this today. Don't forget to watch the video here.
Thanks so much.
