Teri's Hearts & Flowers

 Mixed Media Hearts and Flowers

Teri Wilson - TerisMailbox

Hello friends. It's Teri posting for the Funkie Junkie Boutique's Inspiration Avenue Blog. Our current challenge is Hearts and Flowers.

I had too much fun creating the mixed media tag. 

I have a video HERE if you prefer to watch the process.

Create the Tag Base

Start by painting White Gesso on a Small Etcetera Tag. I added three layers. Use Hickory Smoke Archival Ink to stamp the Ledger Script stamp in sections over the tag. Switch to Black Soot Archival Ink and Stamp CMS369 Architecture stamp in the center. Use your heat tool to be sure the inks are set.

Once dry, use the Thorned Stencil #162 and add a layer of Opaque Crackle Paste on top.

Remove the stencil and wash off immediately. Sprinkle Lumberjack Plaid and Rustic Wilderness Embossing Glaze on top. Tap the bottom of the tag to move the glaze into the cracks and set aside to dry.

Turn the tag over onto a piece of scrap paper to remove the unstuck glaze and heat set.

Create the Embellishments

Select three Quote Chips with heart themes. Press embossing ink on the top and add Lumberjack Plaid embossing glaze to the top. Heat set.

Use the Heart from the Etcetera Large Cutout set and cut a heart shaped piece from a Back Drop set that has flowers on it. Coat with Collage medium and add the floral heart. Cover the top with Collage Medium and cover with Rock Candy Glitter. Tap off the excess.

Use Red Pepper to color a metal heart. The filigree heart was in my stash.

Use the Crazy Cat's Accessory die (no longer available) to cut two small, medium and large hearts from distressed ink smooshed cardstock.

Assemble the Tag

Select a few embellishments from one of Tim's sets. I selected a floral business card plus some leaves.
After using Collage Medium to attach to the center, glue the sparkle heart at an angle on the right side.

Dye a piece of seam binding with Candied Apple Distress Ink. Once dry, form a bow.  Use red and white twine to attach the bow as well as the filigree heart. Leave long tails on the twine and add one more strand so you have three hanging pieces to attach the heart to. Leave one end of the extra piece short as you do not need it. Glue the die cut harts to the three hanging strands and allow to dry.

The last step is to arrange the Quote Chips on the Tag and glue in place.
