Mixed Media Floral Tags for ScrapBerry's

ScrapBerry's Birds of Paradise Mixed Media Tags
Welcome back to my creative space. Today I'm sharing a set of tags featuring the beautiful ScrapBerry's Birds of Paradise Collection along with sweet embellishments that coordinate perfectly. A complete product list can be found at the bottom of this post.

I paired a Pink Clove paper flower with a sweet Versailles Resin Chrysanthemum for this delicate cluster.

I like to have a selection of all occasion gift tags on hand for when I am putting gift packages together so this "delight" flair button is simply perfect for the sentiment.

The flowers are dry brushed with white gesso to soften. I brushed gel medium around the cluster and sprinkled with Prills and microbeads for added texture.

I inked the edges of the chipboard birds with Distress Ink, then lightly dry brushed with white gesso. The background is stenciled with molding paste, then spritzed with beige and primrose mist. Once dry, I added a bit of white spatter with drawing ink.

In this shot you can see another of the delicate resin Chrysanthemums. Don't you just adore how the dry brushed gesso brings out the texture?

I just adore the bird chipboard in the Birds of Paradise Set and it was so easy to color them by edging with Distress Ink and gesso.

My dear friend, Juliana Michaels recently gave me a set of Jillibean Soup Chipboard Tags. I traced the tag shape onto the paper and adhered with soft matte gel. To make sure the paper was securely attached, I rolled over the paper firmly with a brayer while the gel was still wet. Once dry, I trimmed off any excess paper then sanded the edges. You can view Juliana's amazing work on her blog, 17turtles.

 I hope you've been inspired to grab your ScrapBerry's
