Kim Gowdy here today with a fun little, mixed media tag to share. I love that all these wonderful mixed media products have oozed into the scrapbooking and card making world. Do you?

I believe that any hobby that we stick with for a long time needs to challenge us to keep us interested and engaged. Scrapbooking continues to do just that for me…from my photography to trying new products and techniques, this industry still holds my interest after 12 years!

Let’s take a peek at my tag and process.

Mixed Media tag / Art-C, Brea Reese / Clearsnap inks / Mixed Media and Scrapbooking
Mixed media tag using fun papers, embellishments, paints and inks! Layer up fun embellishments after the base is made have FUN!
Let’s create the base!
Art-C ephemera collage kit / mixed media tag
I cut a large tag from Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. I tore up pieces of papers from an Art-C ephemera collage kit and adhered it randomly on my tag using a gel medium.
Brea Reese paints and inks / mixed media tags / simple paint wash
Brea Reese has amazing inks…some with glitter, some without. I mixed some with a bit of the heavy body acrylic white. I washed it onto my tag with a very wet brush to unify the papers below.
Mixed media tag / Art-C stamps / ColorBox Archival Dye ink
I used these stamps from an Art-C stamp and adhesive stencil kit. I randomly inked the stamp with ColorBox  Archival Dye and skattered it all over the tag.
Momenta stencils / Colorbox pigment ink / Mixed media tag
Another layer was added to my tag using this Momenta stencil and ColorBox pigment ink. The pigment ink does not dry quickly so it gives you working time to apply it evenly.
Art-C ephemera, stamps and stencils / Momenta stencil / Mixed Media supplies
Here is a peek at the Momenta and Art-C products I pulled out to make this tag. They have so many fabulous products to layer and have fun with, making the process pretty darn easy!
Easy Mixed Media tag / DIY tag with scrapbooking supplies / memory keeping
I love how this little tag turned out. The phrases from the ephemera kit were perfect for the picture of my then fiancé / now husband…I feel they represent how we felt our life would be…and how it turned out to be!

Thanks for joining me. I love how my tag turned out. I’m not sure yet how I will use. It may become a scrapbook page element, I may tuck it into an art journal or I may use it on a bottle of wine to give to my hubby to celebrate a milestone anniversary. The photo on the tag is before we got married – circa 1989!

Happy Summer! Happy Scrapbooking!
