Colorful tags with Liquid Acrylics

Hello,

Today I have two tags for you, with lots of layers and details. Most of the items come from a special box on my desk, where I put in various things, leftovers from other projects. You definitely have such a box! :) I found in it, among others, resin castings - which were painted black gesso and covered with different colors of waxes.

However, first and foremost, I wanted to show you how universal liquid acrylics are. I used them here almost like watercolors. I lightly diluted them and painted the background of my tags. The paints are beautifully combined, creating smooth transitions, great help is spraying with water. Remember that you have to act quickly, because the paints are permanent after drying and you will not do anything with them anymore, the water will not work. Exactly you can see it on my video, at the bottom of this post.




To make the background more interesting, I also used new stamps - Old Paper Work. I stamp them with brown ink to better blend into the background. With the same color of ink, I distressed the edges.
I completed my tags with matching photos and sentiments from the Art Daily collection, they fit always and everywhere. It was my cherry on top.








The compositions are very simple and I encourage you to create such projects. Play with products on such small forms, it gives a lot of fun!
