Mixed Media Wooden Tag
My name is Katy, and I am apart of the Design Team here at Unique Laser Designs! It is so exciting to be apart of something so new! And you too get to be apart of our new adventure!
First, let me tell you a little bit about me. I am happily married, and we have a wonderful son. We also have 3 fur babies (cats). I enjoy making layouts, cards, tags, mixed media projects, and whatever else I can use paper and embellishments on. I am beyond excited to be apart of the Unique Laser Design Team. And I hope that my projects along with my team's projects inspire you. :)
So let's get to it! This is my first project for ULD. I used a Wooden Tag, Border Swirl I, small Music Notes.
I used gesso over the wooden tag. Then I heat embossed the image in the middle. Because it's wood it didn't warp or do anything weird (yay!) Then I covered it (masked it) and painted around it. I stamped on the right side of it. The stars were done with light modeling paste and a stencil. At the bottom are rub-ons. I glued the swirl and just left it raw. Using silver paint, I painted the notes.
And then I glued a little jar to the right corner. I made a sweet little bouquet! This adds a little weight but because the tag is made out of wood, it's supported.
And did you know there is a challenge? That's right! But you don't have any of these great wood products? Hmmm--That's ok! There is a challenge for you too! So go check it out. All of the rules to the challenge and prizes (yay! prizes!) are here.
I can't wait to see what you create!
