A Rainbow of Mixed Media Tags


I adore making tags. There are days when my attention span can only focus on something small, and it's almost like having a tiny journal page to play on. Instant gratification.

I created these tags using a mixture of spray inks, Hero Arts inks, stamps and embossing powder. I'm a big fan of stamps that just look like doodles, and these are some of my favorites. 


Retro starburst -- I feel like I got this for about 50 cents at Michaels, and it's one of the stamps that I use the most! The backgrounds here were done with spray inks. I'm really digging the pink and yellow one in the middle. The colors mingled a bit, so this lovely orange made an appearance.



Another cheapo stamp that I like -- lattice work.


Finally, we have the circle doodle stamp. Another bargain bin find. The background on this was created using the Hero Arts ink daubers. I wanted a child-like effect, which I think worked out.


And one more, with the same technique.



All of these colors perked me up during a dreary November. I'm looking forward to the sparkle of December!
