Boy Meets Girl Mixed Media Tags

Tags . . . small works that can have a big punch on an art journal page. You can put a tag in a card in the mail, place it on an art journal page, or use it on top of a gift. Tags are perfect little pieces of art to brighten up anyone’s day.

I created the two tags . . . one boy and one girl. They were a little busy than I normally create but I was just creating them for pure fun. I wanted to infuse a little encaustic with Distress ink, notions, and Tim Holtz product. I also like when I’m creating, how a phrase might speak or pop out to me.

I felt like she was sending me a reminder to be faithful.

His message . . . ‘To Challenge the World” speaks to being different. An encouragement to go your own way and make your unique mark in this world!

Little Mixed Media Tags offer a big punch to art journaling pages.

Here’s what I used:

  • Tim Holtz Paper Dolls
  • Tim Holtz Distress Oxide (Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, Walnut Stain)
  • Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glaze (Speckled Egg, Crackling Campfire)
  • Tim Holtz Quote Stamps
  • Dina Wakley Stamps
  • Dina Wakley Acrylic Paint (Marine)
  • Washi Tape by Prima
  • Other; text stamps, letter stencil, Wax, thread, stamp, Pen, Vintage Ribbon, bits and fodder.

Boy Meets Girl but they both have a message to share. What’s a phrase that’s speaking to you recently?

Below are some of the items I use often.

Warmest creative wishes,

    I know you from Brave Girl camp, it is always so fun to get your blog posts! I was wondering how Kathy and Melody were doing? Just saw Kathy closed up shop on the blog with her daughters. Hope you are well!!! Can’t wait for spring to arrive.
