Each year for the past several years we have asked customers to join us in designing holiday tags featuring products we sell in our store. This year we did the same and wow did we end up with some beautiful pieces – we love how different they all are and hope that they inspire you to try out some ‘new to you’ products and techniques.
This first tag is by Paperie customer Karen Young. To create this tag Karen first painted it with black gesso and then dabbed some white gesso over the top, letting some spots of the black show through. Then Karen added some colour using Gelatos. The sentiment is a Kaisercraft stamp, embossed with gold embossing powder. The stars are wood veneer covered with gold embossing powder. The white spots and edging was done with a white paint Sharpie marker. Gorgeous! Products like wood veneer, stamps, paint pens and mixed media mediums are all great ideas for stocking stuffers or small gifts for crafty friends.
Lots of great dimension in this tag – you can see it and other tags in person at the store. Thanks so much for playing along Karen!
