Hi, Connie here with a Mixed Media Stars & Stripes Tag using the new E-Z Runner Stars Refillable Dispenser to add stars on the tag. Could not have been easier!! Such a clever product by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I hear they have hearts too!!! Check out the steps for this project below and follow along. Enjoy!
Mixed Media Stars & Stripes Tag Steps
I did a little background preparations to start the tag. Using Distress Oxide ink or the medium of your choice, I painted a flag design. Mask off a grid and just add color. Stamp out a focal image which was a Lady Liberty silhouette and trim out.
- 1. Add the small reinforcement from the 3D Foam Circle Frames Black and brush on Perfect Pearls in off-white.
2. Add 3D Foam Circles White Mix and the 3D Foam Squares Micro White to the Lady Liberty silhouette shape. Tip: I used the Micro Squares for the very tip of the torch. – perfect size to keep the tip secured.
3. Now the fun part! Roll on those stars. Yes, it is that easy. I rolled at an angle for interest. The E-Z Runner Stars Refillable Dispenser skipped a few times but no worries, this is mixed media at its finest!! Next, brush on Perfect Pearls and dust off the excess.
4. Stamp some mixed media-themed stamps to the tag background for interest. The 3D Foam Strips (my new favorite product) were used to adhere to the word strips. Add twine and ribbons to finish the Mixed Media Stars & Stripes Tag.
