Mixed Media Birthday Tag – dt project for Creative Embellishments

Happy Thursday, everyone! I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a quick, easy mixed media tag to share. I’ll be honest with you, I had totally intended to share a layout today and time sort of got away from me, which tends to happen when you’ve got 5 kids. lol So…I quickly got this tag together and it never ceases to amaze me how EASY CE products make it to embellish ANY type of project! No joke! Whether it’s a layout, canvas, altered piece, card or tag, once you have your theme in mind, CE products help you pull it all together with ease!

For my tag, I was loosely inspired by Nicolle’s birthday layout of her mother. I just loved how she used the distressed music note bg w/the music note border piece and the Happy Birthday title. So for my tag, I kept that feel to it, but used completely different products! 😀 Here’s how it turned out by using the Mesmerizing Music Notes stamp and Birthday Fun wood veneers:

Happy Birthday tag

I created the background by misting with Art Anthology mists, then used stazon ink to stamp the Mesmerizing Music notes onto it. I then inked the edges of the tag and flicked the whole bg w/some black paint (diluted so I wouldn’t get big globs). I altered the wood veneers using a mixture of the mist used on the bg (sprayed onto a palette and brushed on like paint or ink), silks glaze and Art Anthology Velvet paint, but I did leave the music notes bare. Layered under my flower cluster is a bit of painted mesh and some cheese cloth for added texture and dimension. Hope you like it! 😀
