Memories - Mixed Media Tag/ Shabby Chic

Hello guys
I have a mixed media tag today for you. This is a pink purple color scheme project with loads of flowers and sparkle and splatters. I have lately fallen in love with mixed media projects and cant stop making them....I have personally never done tags and this is my very first mixed media tag...so so happy to share this with you. I have made this as a inspiration for Lets Craft and Create Challenge #134 - Anything Goes = Option Mother's Day. To participate, please click HERE. I hope you all like it as well.

I started with a pattern paper from my stash from Eno Greetings...this paper was lying around for very long. I do not know what pack it belongs to, it has grey and whites stripes with light florish kinda pattern. I adhered it on a chipboard tag measuring 4.5" by 8". I distressed the edges and then added a coat of clear gesso. Once dried, I did some stencilling using Prima Marketing stencil and Modelling paste and left it to dry as well. I then, added Metallique paints from Prima Marketing. To add more interest I did some script stamping using Prima stamps.


I have used diecuts from Kaisercraft Violet crush, some flowers which I heat embossed in white on clear vellum, mulberry lillies and poppies and Handmade flowers from Little Birdie crafts.The sentiment frame is a Kaisercraft diecut as well.
The finishing touches came form White tiny pearls and Dazzle Cocktail glitter mix and splatter of acrylic paints and Gesso.  I also dry brushed all my flowers to bind everything together. My tag has so much shimmer and sparkle but unfortunately my camera failed to capture all the silver sparkle....I am so sad. I wish you all could see it in real.
I am putting up my project at the following blog challenges:-

  1. Words & Paintery February 2018 challenge  - Moodboard.
