"Chair"ished Friend Mixed Media Tag
I am amazed at the change that can be made when using Faber Castell Design Memory Craft products on a plain manilla tag! It's hard to believe that's how this tag started isn't it? Read on to see how I transformed it. I'm excited to share the changes!
First, I stamped and cut out a chair. I used several Gelatos and PITT Artist Big Brush Pens mixed with water to make the chair resemble a real patchwork chair that I saw in my local craft store.
I told you it started out plain! Here, I was trying to determine what to do with the tag next. I stamped a sentiment onto a small piece of paper but the tag needed more changes.
I covered a chicken wire background stamp with a Cobalt Green Big Brush pen and pressed the tag onto it. I also used the pen to color the string at the top of the tag.
After I stamped the tag, I drew directly onto it using a variety of Gelato colors. I used a wet paintbrush to help me spread the colors of the Gelatos. So pretty!
I colored directly onto a wooden heart and arrow using the Big Brush pens. I adhered the colored wooden pieces to the tag using Glaze.
I added some ribbon and sequins to the tag for added texture and visual interest.
Making that tag was super fun! I hope you'll get your Faber Castell Design Memory Craft supplies out and make one too!
