April Mixed Media Tag #1 ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your Easter was lovely and you've had a nice gentle start to this week too. I sat down at the weekend to make my first April Mixed Media Tag and here it is …
It's my first April MM Chubby Tag!
I got some lovely depth on the paste and extra's

I went through my stash and pile of snippets and found a lovely lilac/purple piece that I decided I wanted to add texture paste too. I deliberately used the texture paste quite thickly as I wanted that area to really stand out. I left it to dry overnight. I used my one Indigo Blu stencil (love this design) and traced around the edges using a Spectrum Aqua pen. I then removed the stencil and very gently filled in the colour. I used a piece of plastic to scribble the pens onto and then gently filled in the colour with a lightly damp brush. I also put that aside to dry overnight.
I then looked into my left over stamped snippets wallet and found the Prima circles, the larger die cut circle was in my coloured snippets wallet and the butterflies were die cut from some really beautiful velvet paper that has been in my stash for at least ten years! A great snippety mixed media tag which I actually really love. The texture paste and the pearl pen details are just gorgeous! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
