Be Merry Tag Duo

DeeDee Catron - Be Merry tag Duo

Hello everyone! :) DeeDee here today, super excited to be inspiring you using the amazing range of products from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft®. Today's project and tutorial come in the form of a Tag Duo and video. 

As much as I totally adore Halloween, I have found myself gravitating towards Christmas already. The glittery snow (not now that I live in Las Vegas, lol) the jingle bells and warm tidings. It speaks to my soul this year! So I'm jumping in head first with some tags that will be perfect either on my mantle, hanging from my tree, or even tied to presents. 

Here they are.... Be Merry Tags.

The tag base is watcolor paper. It's heavy and sturdy enough to hold up to some of the real beating I give papers when it coms to mixed media style. It's also the PERFECT platform for the Aquarelle colored pencils which I've used on the background. There's also a bit of Gelato® in Silver Ice and Black Licorice. As a last HOORAH  before moving onto the embellishing, I also used Glass Bead Glitter Gel through an UmWowStudio stencil. It adds the most darling glitter stars I've ever seen.

The right tag has been layered up with a paper doily, thread, altered chipboard piece (Using Gesso and Gelato®,) ribbon and alphas.

The left tag also has a doily, chipboard and thread, but also has a few little sweet flowers, leaves and a pinecone that's been frosted over using Gesso and Glass Bead Glitter Gel. It's been tied off with a big bow of ribbon and a vintage jingle bell. 

Please feel free to see not only the process in action but get more details in this video:

 Thank you so much for stopping by! I'll see you around :)
