My first attempt at mix-media project.I had seen so many wonderful mix media projects with texture paste by Yvonne and wanted to try it some day.Recent post by Lizzy just triggered the urge and here I am with my first experiment with home made texture paste !
This tag has lots of up-cycling .I started with a price tag which comes with outfits ,covered it with thick white paper from both sides and stitched it.
|Tag with gesso and gauze layer|
Done with the background it was time to embellish it.For that I used some silk trims
Made a braid with it .
I wanted to use something other than flowers so used pistachio shell.Colored them with acrylic paint and glued some plastic beads on it.The feathers are from garden.The translucent paper from tea-bag and the rectangular plastic beads from old jewelry.Except white acrylic paint everything used on this tag is more than year old !This is vey different from my earlier project so I need your feedback about it !
