A Girl Is~Mixed Media Tag

Hi Friends! Abby here with ScrappinAbby and I'm back with another fun DT project to share with all of you. This time I created a cool teenage-themed mixed media tag using some of the canvas flower pieces from the BLOOM collection.
I also have a video that shows you the tag up close along with a short tutorial on how I altered the bloom canvas pieces & used them as the skirt for my Prima Doll Stamp....

I really wanted to create something different with the bloom pieces and use them in a different application other than a flower. I knew I wanted to have some sort of texture/image on the canvas so I used some Archival Jet Black ink and used one of my background stamps...
Next I used some spray that I watered down a bit with some water on the canvas pieces (please note that I didn't cut the flowers in half until after they were sprayed)....

I used my TH Tiny Attacher to create pleats on each end of the flower piece I was using. This created a draped and skirt like effect with the pieces. I just made the pleats go in a little further with each layer to create that ruffled skirt look...

Once that final step was complete, I just began layering all the elements on my tag. Super easy :)

I just love how the skirt came out using the Bloom canvas pieces. Such a fun project that really is quick to create. Be sure to head over to the Linnie Blooms store and pick up some fun canvas pieces to use on your mixed media & other crafty projects. 

Don't forget to stop by my BLOG and see the full product list and additional photos. 

Happy Crafting : )
