Two Hearts in One Mixed Media Tag

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share another mixed media tag I created for a certain someone to surprise him on his weekend trip away from home.

Two Hearts in One Tag Mixed Media 1

I know you all are used to me adding big gimongus bows to my projects…but this tag really called for lots of ribbon in a variety of textures and widths and patterns. Also I wanted to reduce the bulkiness of it for packing so it’s just run through the metal eyelet and tied off with twine.

The mixed media plan for this card was to add a variety of mediums like inks and stamps and Gelatos….but keep all the colors relatively dark to minimize the contrast.

This combination of embellishments started with an altered chipboard frame then layers of hearts and tags and metal gears. That fabulous texture in the background  comes from some packaging material that came in a box of lovely treats from my BOLB Kathy Clement. A little gold paint was all that it needed to dress it up and coordinate it with the gold on the chipboard heart.

Difficult to see…but I added a bit of acrylic film strip ribbon. If you have some in your own stash…you will know it’s packaged in a fun tiny metal tin.  I attempted to take out a small length to add to this tag but it turns out to be a little like those old cans that would have a faux snake squished in that would pop out and surprise the person opening the can…..so there was acrylic ribbon just flying everywhere. I felt like the Three Stooges lol.
Okay on to that glorious ribbon combination~Black Plaid, Diagonal Stripe in Black, Black with Four Thin Stripes Sheer.

Take Life One Cup at a Time Mixed Media

Standard

Hey there Peeps!  It’s Ginny here and I’m dropping in to share a very fun mixed media collage I created using the super cute coffee cup chippies from Gypsy Soul.  My day does not start without a good strong cup of french roast….okay maybe two lol.

Take Life One Cup at a Time 1

After prepping the chippies with Gesso I used a variety of inks and stamps to give each little cup a unique color scheme…then I used the chevron stamp on the front of each one to bring them together as a set.

Take Life One Cup at a Time 2

These Cups have little separate pieces that makes them super easy to alter!!!  I layered these two on Mixed Media Fragments.

Take Life One Cup at a Time 3

I separated this Mixed Media Fragment piece into smaller portions to create fun focal points around the edge of this collage.  Topped off with coordinating flowers.

Take Life One Cup at a Time 4

Two more cups for this arrangement. I added some sparkly gems because  coffee with bling is even more better!!!

Take Life One Cup at a Time 5

Adding shading around the chipboard elements helps to anchor them in the collage and gives and aged effect.

Easter Pocket with Tags

Standard

It’s no secret I’m a sucker for lovely little pockets chock full of tags. Not only is it a wonderful seasonal  decor item..but a thoughtful way to give gift cards to an entire  family. Simply add them to the tags and after they receive their gift..they can add pictures and journaling to the tags to remember the special holiday they  shared with you : ) These tags have sweet children with bunnies and lambs and flowers all layered on bright and cheerful paper patterns. I combined Precious Memories with Baby 2 Bride from Graphic 45 for the perfect amount of shabby and holiday.
