Mixed Media Sunday ...

Good evening ... I hope you've had a good weekend.  I've been lucky enough to spend time crafting!! I decided that if I'm ever to be a confident mixed media artist I'm going to have to practise and practise ... so that is what I have been doing.  To warm up I did some mono-printing using my gel printing plate ... trying to create grungy style prints.  These are two of the prints I created:

Hopefully they will be further developed with some stencilling and stamping to create either a journal page or be cut up for ATCs or Tags.

I still had time to spare so I took a section from another gel print and created this tag:

I added some stamping to the print before stitching it to a manilla tag.  I added the die cut hearts, butterfly and word.  I adhered the butterfly by the body only to leave the wings free to add dimension.

I used:
A mixture of acrylic paints
STAMPlorations - Mixed Media Grunge Stamps;  Flutter Zen 2 Layering dies, Manilla Tags Nesting dies, Love die, Clustered Heart die.

I'm going to enter this tag into the Mixed Media Challenge at Happy Little Stampers
