Love TAGPlorations Blog Hop Day 1

Today is the day! Welcome to Love TAGplorations Blog Hop and Link Up Party.

It is a full 7 days of blog hop full of inspirations from the design team and link up party at STAMPlorations blog and today is the day 1. And… there are many chances to win one of the many prizes! Keep reading to find out how you can enter to win!

I am so super excited today joining the STAMPlorations Girls this week for this special blog hop. And here’s my mixed media tag for the Day 1 Blog Hop:

I created the tag background with some color burst powder and mixture of perfect pearls mister. Then I added some of the mixed of texture paste and acrylic paints with the new Zen Hearts ARTplorations Stencil.

Once the texture paste dried, I stamped the XOXO from Pocket Blooms Stamp Set with black archival ink pad. And then I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on a white cardstock, cut out the rectangle shape, doodled the line, and added on the tag with 3d foam tape.

Final step, I added some of the sequins to finish my mixed media tag.
