Hello everyone… Today I have a Nativity mixed media acrylic tag to share with you all. I hope it is not to early for Christmas project!
For my tag today, I use one of the tags from the Acrylic Tag Album. All Clear Scrap acrylic sheets, acrylic tags, and shaker plastic cover have clear plastic covers to protect the surfaces.
I removed the clear plastic covers from both sides of the tag, and then I covered the acrylic tag surface with the mod podge (gel medium will work well, too for this step).
I added the old hymnal music page on the tag and then cover it again with the mod podge and let it dried well.
After surface dried well, I trimmed the extra paper with scissors.
I covered the surface randomly with metallic paste (gold and silver), and I also added some white gesso.
When the that paste and white gesso layer dried well, I covered the whole tag with Glitter mod podge for some sparkle look on it (I really wish the camera can capture it!). Then let it sit to dry.
If you are not patient enough waiting each layer of medium to dry, you can dry them with craft heater, but have to be very very very careful to not be over heated becuase the acrylic tag can bend or the paste can be bubbly.
Next step, I put the 4×6 Nativity stencil on top of the tag and I taped it down so it would not move around when I added the modeling paste.
I added the Black Ice Metallix Gel on the stencil just on the navitity image.
On the craft mat, I mixed some fine iridescent glitter with the white modeling paste. Then I added the paste on the stars above the nativity image.
I put the 6×6 Ice Crystal Snowflakes Stencil at the bottom of the nativity image and I added some of the mixed glitter paste on it too.
I set the tag aside and let the paste to dry while I worked on the extra embellishment pieces.
I cut out some green and red cardstock using the holly leaves swirl and berries dies from A Jillian Vance Design. Then, I printed the digital sentiment from Graciellie Design on a white cardstock, and cut it with the oval stitched die.
I added all the extra pieces on top of the tag, right bellow the nativity with 3-in-1 Beacon adhesive and some 3D foam tape for extra dimension.
I hope this will give you more ideas for your Holidays projects. It is coming soon for sure! Visit Clear Scraps store to check on what’s new!
