Start with a blank chipboard tag. Coat with clear gesso and allow to dry or dry with a heat tool.
Some prep work: Paint strips of netted drywall tape black. Set aside to dry. Use the same AA Colorations Sprays you will use on your background to dye an array of flowers and set them aside to dry.
Use stencils and texture paste to create texture and dimension. Allow to dry.
For the Bubbles stencil use white crackle paste. Make sure the previous stencils are completely dry before stacking. allowing crackle paste to dry naturally will give a better cracked effect.
Next, use a glue and sealing medium that dries clear to coat the entire surface of tags. This creates a seal for the ink as well a bit of gloss.
Adhere chipboard frame to tag using foam dots or cardboard pieces for depth. The edges of frame were sponged with black archival ink.
This tag I used the punched middle from the chipboard frame on the other tag. Place cheesecloth on tag and adhere this piece. Again, Edges sponged with Black Archival Ink.
Build the rest using your died flowers, jute string, cheesecloth and pearl pins. Add the little girl paper doll.
Add sentiment stickers once you have all of your other embellishments glued down.
