Dream Tag

Aug 9, 2012

Here is a fun tag to cre­ate that is filled with all kinds of lit­tle tech­niques that are per­fect to use on oth­er pro­ject­sl. I start­ed with a plain mani­la office tag and cov­ered it with vin­tage ledger paper. Next, using the Maya Road Ornate Frames stamp set and Jet Black Archival Ink, I stamped the frame images onto the ledger paper. Next I took the new Maya Road Flo­ral Gar­den Fab­ric Tape and filled the inside area of the frames. I then accent­ed the flow­ers with Dia­mond Stick­les and let it dry. Once dry, I cov­ered the Fab­ric Tape with Glossy Accents and let it dry. Make sure you have a pin handy to pop any air bub­bles that occur.

Here is a lit­tle tip: I like to leave the stamps on the acetate piece just as they come pack­aged and use the entire stamp set as a back­ground stamp. No need for an acrylic block, just ink, stamp and go.

I then inked the Dream and Go stamps from the Maya Road Art Jour­nal­ing Words stamp set using Jet Black Archival Ink and stamped the words onto the tag as shown in the pho­to above.

Next came the real­ly fun part… glit­ter­ing the bird. I used a Maya Road Metal­lic Blue 1″ Ink Pad and inked the entire wood­en Maya Road Vin­tage Bird. I then applied Glossy Accents over the entire top of the bird and poured glass glit­ter on  top cre­at­ing a mound of glit­ter on the bird. Using tweez­ers I picked up the bird and gen­tly tapped off the excess glass glit­ter. I attached the altered Vin­tage Bird onto the tag using a foam square.

To com­plete the tag I attached a piece of Maya Road Flo­ral Gar­den Fab­ric Tape to the bot­tom por­tion of the tag. I trimmed the top edge of the fab­ric tape using Scal­lop Scis­sors. I then attached a strip of Maya Road Tu-Tu Vin­tage Beige Tulle and a strip of Maya Road Vin­tage Jew­el Iri­des­cent Dia­mond Rhine­stone Trim at the bot­tom, attached a piece of Brown Lat­te Twine Cord­ing to the top for the hang­er and accent­ed the edges of the tag using Plat­inum Stick­les.

There ya have it… a fin­ished tag per­fect to accent any gift or frame to hang as a small home decor piece.
