A Texture-Layered Tag

This is a collaboration of many of my favorite products.

And I love how it turned out.

It starts with a plain manila tag, some Plaster Texture paste and a stencil. The Rust Pastes and Metallique paints are added for color and contrast. It's then glued to a larger piece of white chipboard.

The Baked Texture embossing powders from Seth Apter are the next step. You're gonna love how these babies add texture and dimension to your projects.

This is the center section of the tag showing the first layer of Plaster Paste and several layers of Rust Pastes and paints from Finnabair.

These are the paper clay wings made in a Prima silicone mold.

I used two colors to create these wings.

Now this was really fun! I added embossing ink to chipboard and paper clay pieces, then I sprinkled the gorgeous Baked Texture embossing powders
on them and heated.

VERY cool results with different heating times can be achieved.

The metal elements are Mechanicals from Finnabair and the vintage picture is
from Retro Cafe Art Gallery.

I had several clay pieces I made up from Iron Orchid Designs with different
paint combinations, and this beautiful red piece was perfect for the tag.

I hope you enjoyed this collection of products and will try out the different
ideas I touched on here.

Your Friend in ART,
