Happy Happy New Year to you all! Another year, and a new day.

This is a set of Mixed Media Tags made for the New Year, So many of my co-workers have chosen to move forward and change positions, jobs and careers. This tag is for and exceptional staff member wishing her a Happy New Day and Happy New Year.

I had just gotten some new paper from over seas. Just what I need is more paper, but a girl needs some new goods from time to time. So gorgeous and elegant, I had some tags I needed to make for a few fellow staff members that have chosen a new path for this upcoming new year.

I made a short little video of the creative process.

I started layering the paper on the large Tags from the store, so fun and big, a prefect canvas to make pretty much anything. I picked out three different pastes that match the paper. I layered and mixed the pastes through the Small Circle Stencil and set aside to dry.

I cut some of the elements from the paper to add to the details of the tag.

I began with the Berry Sprigs and started with some lindy’s spray Autumn Crimson Red and before that was dry, I added Burnt Orange and sprayed it with some water to get the water colour effect.

I did the same effect on the Fancy Floral Filigree 2 and Simple Flourish 2 with a soem black and green spray.

I didn’t add too much to the card, the paper collection came with paper die cuts (I hate fussy cutting 😉 ) A simple flower cluster and resin embellishment along with some die cut elements.

I wanted to leave a spot to write a little inspirational note on the back, and well wishes for a Happy New Year.

I wanted to soften the look of the card and pull the silvers and golds out of the paper. I tried some Gilding gold and silver, yep that didn’t work. I tried some paint (My New Years goal is to use older product up) I grabbed some paint that was pretty thick, it didn’t layer how I wanted it to, yep starting to cover that up. So my splatters got a little heavy in a few spots.

Thank you all for stopping by, I want to wish you all a happy happy New Year and a creative one!
