Mixed Media Tag with Textured Birds

Welcome to my world of Mixed Media! Priss today with you. I bring a tutorial to create a tag full of textures, layers, and fun colors. I used the palette from our monthly challenge as inspiration and added a few personal touches, such as old book paper, buttons, fabrics, threads, and a lovely Textured Bird Stamp that stole my heart. Want to see how I made it? Keep reading and discover everything you need to know.

I have a light wood tags album. So I used one of them to create my inspiration for our April Mood Board challenge. Since these labels have two sides, I decided to play with the backside as well. Today I bring it to you along with a video tutorial so you can enjoy the process.

First I used one of my painted papers to glue on both sides. Then I just play a little with stamps and markers. And these are my two sides of the tag after all this playtime.

Once my background is ready, the first thing I do is select the stamp that will be the focal point of my project. For this tag, I chose a fantastic little bird from the Textured Birds set that I had already painted in the right colors for another project. You can see another project with these stamps, here.

Then, I gather some elements to accompany the composition. In this case, I used fabric, threads, and buttons. Also, I stamped some images from the Carved Collection 3 set onto old book pages. Finally, I play around with the elements until I find the perfect composition that I love.

Now I leave you with a few close-up photos.

And finally, it’s time for the fun part! Check out the video below to see my creative process in action and learn how to make your own Mixed Media tag. Watch as I use different textures and elements to build a beautiful composition around the charming little bird stamp. Trust me, you won’t want to miss this!

This is a little reminder that our beautiful April Mood Board continues in the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge on Facebook until the 30th, and now also on Instagram with the hashtag #rubberdancemoodboard. We hope to see you there.

Hugs, Priss
