Tutorial Tuesday: Mixed Media Tag with Katie

Hello! Katie here today for Tutorial Tuesday! For today's post I wanted to show you guys how I created this fun Autumn mixed media tag using the Build a Scene Stamp Set. I love that this stamp set could work for any season, I chose to give my tag an Autumn theme.

1.First I applied a matte medium through a stencil onto my tag. This gives it texture, which looks great after you add color over it.

2. I used multiple techniques to color my tag. I started by misting it with Tattered Angels spray in orange, then I applied a bit of purple alcohol ink along the left side and to finish it off I rubbed yellow gelato on to the tag with my finger, getting it into the grooves of the matte medium.

3. Now for the stamping! The Build a Scene set is really fun, I started with the tree. Since I want this to look Autumn-y I only stamped the bare tree, not the leaves. I finished the scene with the other stamps like clouds, the owl and I stamped the fence repeatedly to create a border along the bottom.

To finish off my tag I add some stickers by Basic Grey and wrapped a bit of twine around it!
