A Trio Of Tiny Tags

Hi there! How's the weekend treating you? The weather here is hovering just around freezing, with clear blue skies, so it looks like this is the weekend to put up our Christmas lights and clean off the roof before the rain comes back. It's crazy that it's time for Christmas preparations to start already.

The November Flying Unicorn Small Art, Big Passion Add-On contained 6 mini tags - 3 in white and 3 in pink, perfect for those little packages. I'm stopping in today to share my projects with the 3 mini white tags.

I started by misting all three tags with the three Lindy's mists from the Main Kit and Mixed Art Add On, then went in three different directions from there.

For the first tag, I added a little shading around the edges with Distress Ink, then used the Viva Pearl Pen from the Mixed Passion kit to draw circles in various sizes on the background. Once those were dry I coloured the insides using Viva Inka Gold.

The dragonfly Stamp and Add set was included in the Small Art, Big Passion Add On, I stamped the image on a scrap of paper, and added some shading around the edges with Distress Ink.

Here's a closeup of the background:

For the second tag I sprayed the mists more liberally on the background, and once they were dry added some Shimmerz Dazzlerz from my stash and pressed the gold microbeads from the Mixed Art add on into the wet medium. While that dried I coloured one of the Julie Nutting Mini Wooden Dolls from the Small Art add on, using 13 Arts paints. I achieved her skin tone by mixing Sand and Cocoa with a little bit of White. For the red accents I used Twinkling H2Os.

For the third tag, I added some light stamping to the background with a grey chalk edger, which I also used around the edges. A couple touches of Pearl Pen and a Stamp N Add Butterfly and the tag is done!

A little Distress Inking around the edges of the butterfly to add some depth.

Thank you for stopping by today - I hope you have an amazing weekend!
