Inspired Tags

I have been watching some videos by Marta from Maremi SmallArt on YouTube. She is one talented lady! She does amazing mixed media as well as paper projects like cards. One video in particular got my creative juices flowing. In this video, Marta made Shabby Chic vintage style cards. The link to the video is:

Instead of making cards, however, I was inspired to make some tags using her techniques.

First I cut some tag shapes out of cardboard. I just free-handed these.

Then I added a layer of texture using decoupage paper, drywall tape and old book pages stuck on with Gesso.

For my first tag I used my Prima Princess paper collection and embellishments.

For the second tag I used some specialty papers and some papers from the Market Street collection by My Mind’s Eye.

For the third tag I used paper from Tim Holtz and My Mind’s Eye, however, I forgot to take a picture of the papers used. Sorry!

Here are the three tags I made.

I love how they turned out. There is so much layering on each one so the dimension is quite thick.

If you find yourself in a rut or just need a little inspiration. Go to Marta’s YouTube channel, Maremi SmallArt. I know you will find some videos to jump-start your art mojo!

Thank you Marta for all of your videos, including the “Break a blank page” series!
