ScraPerfect Mixed Media Tag Featuring The Robin's Nest

Good morning everyone, Kim here with my next project for ScraPerfect.  This time we are doing a cross promo with The Robin's Nest, you have to check out their site and designers!
I have created a mixed media tag this time, and had so much fun incorporating The Robin's Nest goodies!
I gave the tag a coat of gesso and then I used some of the Mixed colours of Dew Drops and mixed them in with my Glass Bead Gel from Golden.

I used my palette knife to put the mixture on the tag in several spots.

I also used some of my stencils from my stash to add more texture.

The next step was to spray some of my favorite colour sprays on the tag to pick up on the texture of the tag. I dried the layers in between and when it was all dry, it was time to get out The Best Glue Ever with the no-clog writing cap on it for good even coverage and to ensure not much glue is used.

I put the glue in various places so I could glue down some mica flakes on the tag.
Below is a close up of the mica flakes and I also used some mica powder in silver over the top of the Dew Drop and glass bead gel.


Once everything was dry I got out some of the Saffron Cards from the set we were given in the cross promo and layered them on the tag.

I placed some white thread behind the card, then added some metal embellishments and flowers around them as well.

I also added some of the remaining Dew Drops around the tag and on the cards.
Once again, here is the finished tag!

I hope you have found some inspiration today, and will check out The Robin's Nest and ScraPerfect Stores.
Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Owl Tag for Shabby is Chic Boutique on Zibbet

Good morning friends, Kim here today with my next project for Shabby is Chic Boutique on Zibbet.
This time I have altered a large tag using a gorgeous napkin gifted to me by my friend Amy Love.
I first started off by giving the tag a coat of gesso on both sides. Then I cut the napkin to fit, and gave it a coat of Sparkle Mod Podge.
I used some Prima Art Alchemy Paint in rose gold and aqua rose around the image of the owl, then got out my script stamp and Stayzon Ink and stamped around the image as well.
After the ink and Prima Art Alchemy Paints were dry, I also some Prima Bloom spray, in soft teal around the image.

Once the sprays were dry, it was time to get out some gorgeous laces from SCB! I layered on the white and teal tulle trim first at the base of the tag, then some of the scallop trim, mini fringe and finally the gorgeous white and sequin trim at the top.
For the top of the tag, I used 2 of the larger scallops from the scallop trim, and placed a blue acrylic flower with bling in each of them to pick up on the colour of the seam binding I placed thru the hole of the tag.
At this point, I got out the Deco Fun Bow maker, which SCB now carries, and used it to make an easy but elegant bow for the base of the tag. I used the script trim from SCB, and one of the smaller laces from Deco Fun to make the bow.
Once the bow was made, I added some of the new Square Bling from SCB to the center to give it some sparkle and shine! I also added some flowers from my stash in matching colours to add softness to the tag.


 A finishing touch was some teal sequins from my stash for more sparkle.
Once again, here is the finished tag.

I hope you will stop by the Shabby is Chic Boutique Store today and make one of these tags yourself, they are really fun to make!
Thanks for stopping by!
