In this video Rae Missigman creates artful tags using stencils, paint and a few mark-making tools to fashion a simple and beautiful note in just a few minutes. For an extra pop of fun, she added some colorful ribbons and trims.
Techniques Featured in this Video:
Spread gesso over the entire surface of a shipping tag. Let dry partially, and then apply spray inks (I used Bubblegum, Fuchsia and Calypso).
Use a brush to move and mix the inks around with the gesso.
Apply acrylic paint (I used Dina’s Night & Turquoise) through the Mix & Match Scalloped Edges and Frazzled & Ruffled Feather stencils, using your finger and plenty of paint to get a raised edge. Let dry or speed up process with a heat tool.
Layer white and yellow acrylic paint onto the tag, adding color and making marks.
Outline your stencil shapes with a pencil and China Marker. Journal with a white gel pen.
Add stitching around the edges and shapes.
Slip knot colorful ribbon to the top of your tag, and sew on some colorful trim to the bottom.
