Monday Mixed Media Tag

Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend and enjoyed last night's Superbowl. Our New England Patriots didn't make it but I still watched it for the awesome commercials and halftime activities! I spent the weekend catching up on bills, getting my taxes ready to file and creating a bit. I made a card and a tag. My tag is a mixed media one and it was fun getting all painty again!
I'm entering my tag into Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge "Ray of Sunshine" featuring Dina Wakley products. Here's my tag ...
I used Ranger's watercolor paper for the background and the Scribbly Girl. I applied gesso to the tag, let it dry then sprayed the tag with water. I added Dina's paints to the wet background so the paints would move and blend like water colors. I applied some yellow to the upper left corner for some rays of sunshine and some glass beads. The crinkle ribbon was dragged into several colors of watered down paint.
The tissue tape adds some interest and grounds the girl. I splattered some Night to the background and added circles with the same color.


 


I'll be back tomorrow with my card. Hope you have a great day and I have listed the supplies used for my tag below. Thanks for stopping by!

I really love how this tag turned out! The color palette is full of life and energy, yet it's not too over-the-top. It is perfect! And I adore the personality you've given your girl here. The sentiments and stamps that you mixed together give such visual interest and the whole thing made me smile. Really beautiful work and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
