Hey bloggers - welcome to day 1 of the #LoveSummerArt collaborative project with YouTube Artists around the WORLD! The event runs from July 17 - 20th. To find these artist, just type #LoveSummerArt in your YouTube search bar.
This is a super fun way for you to discover new artists on YouTube, and be inspired by their work. All genres of art are participating - Exciting Right! I've already met some super talented artists, just in the planning stage.
Today, I'm sharing with you a Mixed Media Tag that I've created using up some of those pesky scraps and "one hit wonders" that I have laying around on my desk. My tag base is a pair of my husband's old jeans - trust me - they have never looked this pretty, EVER!
My project was actually inspired by the Wander Philosophy Tags from Tim Holtz. In the Summer you should always "Wander" or "travel" and explore. What better to illustrate this philosophy than a Dragon Fly - Right? Here in Florida, we have these black dragon flies that have this beautiful teal iridescent colors, but at first glance they look black. I wanted to duplicate this effect on my tag. I used Lindy's Stamp Gang, Vellum and an IndigoBlu Dragonfly stamp. In the video I will show you how I created this handsome little fellow to mimic the ones in my garden!
Here is the video showing how I created this tag from Start To Finish
Thanks for stopping in today! Don't forget to check back tomorrow, where I will be sharing a Layout Process video.
