Mixed Media Tag

I just LOVE mixed media tags. I love to create them, I love to get them and I love to share them.  This is one of my favorite ways to use scraps, and experiment with new techniques.  When I created this tag, I gave myself  two little challenges.

This was easy enough -  I really don't think there was a single item on this tag that was new!   I used old Rub-ons that are so old they were cracking (LOL)  It is time for them to go!   And all the other products with exception of the mediums and pearls were found in a bucket of scraps on my desk!

2.  Do something new!    -   I wanted to experiment with different sized pearls and adding them to my floral sprays.  So I decided to use the Glass Bead Glitter Gel from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.  You can see the micro beads from the Glass Bead Glitter Gel adding additional texture to the larger pearls.  LOVED this technique!   They remind me a little of grapes, and may consider that with a grape fine spray in the future! 
I just love this transparency that I printed several years ago when I took the Rhonna Designs' 21 Day challenge in 2010.   I added Patina Alcohol Ink to the back so that the lettering was easier to read.

This little Nylon butterfly has been around for a long time. I just keep putting him back in the bucket.  Now he has a cozy place to sit!
I have prepared a process video of me creating the tag.

Here is the finished tag!  Isn't it GORGEOUS!
I love how this tag looks like rusted metal.  The Patina effect is simply gorgeous!  There is a ton of texture, and so much eye candy here!
Remember to Save the Date - Our next Ustream will be October  6 at 8:30 p.m. EST.  I hope you can join me.  I plan to do some chalkboard art!
