New crafting goodies arrived this week and had so much fun playing with them.
Here is my Tag......
The Tag was inspired by the challenge mood board over at 13@arts
My starting point was the vintage book pages, the door and the blue pattern.
My starting point was the vintage book pages, the door and the blue pattern.
I applied white gesso and strips from an old dictionary to the die cut tag.
White embossing paste and two stencils were used for the door and the tiles.
Lots of structure grit paste and crackle paste was scrapped on randomly.
I used white embossing paste through another stencil onto tissue for the sentiment.
Finishing off with splats and hi-lighting some of the texture with a hint of gold wax.
Thank you for finding the time to stop by, I really do appreciate it.
Hope you are all keeping well and safe?
Challenges I would love to enter.....
13 @rts - Mood Board
Mixed media at its most artistic Mac, an amazing result, how you made the tissue into the sentiment is beyond me! Fantastic result and Beautiful also.
I would so love to watch you create, Mac! My jaw drops everytime I come to your blog--gorgeous work!
What a marvellous piece of work Mac, gorgeous design and texture, I love the background paper with the old door, so artistic, Kate x
You are so talented, my friend. This tag is a piece of art! LOVE the amazing stencils you've used and all that paste and texture. Beautiful! xx
Absolutely stunning tag, Mac. Great design and I love the texture. xx
Your mixed media pieces are always so full of texture and interest Mac and love the door and pretty tile effect covered with blue ink to highlight it and the crackle is fantastic, and what a clever use of texture paste with the tissue to make the sentiment. A beautiful tag! Thank you also for the lovely comment re. my win over at CAS Christmas which is so appreciated. x
Fab tag Mac - more mixed media loveliness! x
Fabulous mixed media, Mac! I wish I could master this but keep getting stuck in my CAS rut. Love the colours and all the texture (especially around the door - looks like a wonderful old Italian building).
How intriguing that a tiny portion of the dictionary still shows thru your beautifully applied textures and colors, Mac! The golden highlights make a lovely contrast with the pale blue colors. Your tag shows even more of your artiste talents! hugs, de
A beautiful mixed media tag. I love all the texture on it and details.
It’s such a shame there’s no texture and dimension!... 😂🤣😉 ha, ha!
Wow, Mac! Your tag is jaw-dropping amazing. The amount of texture, dimension and details are incredible. You took a few inspirations from the mood photo and ran with it. As usual, a mixed media masterpiece... and then some!
I'm loving all your mixing of stencil Mac, the texture is amazing :)
Really gorgeous tag here Mac! Absolutely brilliant job with the texture and the elemental shapes and designs stand out beautifully on it! HUGS
I don't know how you do it, but there is so much texture, and interest on this fabulous tag!
You are a mixed media master. Fabulous.
This is another brilliant project, Mac. Your tag is fantastically stunning! I love the picture it shows. Like a beautiful old door to an old house in a small Greek seaside village. You can find real gems there and you managed to capture this atmosphere. I love it, you're a really great artist, Mac
Oh, so gorgeous!! Fabulous texture!l. A true piece of art!! Well done!!
What a marvelous mixed media tag, Mac! So many layers and mix of products that boggle my mind! You are an awesome mixed media artist, my friend! I so enjoyed reading about the process!
A fabulously designed tag, your colours and design are always awesome. I love 13@arts ♥
Wow, this tag is another piece of art, Mac! I feel like looking at it in real life and feeling the wonderful texture with my fingers. The paste stenciling is intricate and beautiful, and I love the crackle paste effect. Using strips from a dictionary for the base, and tissue for the stenciled sentiment is unexpected and unique. The subtle variance of the colors makes the tag look so tasteful and sophisticated. Amazing job, my friend!
This is amazing - it looks like an ancient artifact. Lovely colours.
Oh My Goodness - this is amazing Mac - love the texture and subtle colours
You are so clever, I love the way you build up the texture and interest with your mixed media pieces. This is simply stunning, thank you for making it and sharing it with us, very inspiring xx
So much texture and so much to see on this tag. I love the door and the effect the crackle paste gives. Just gorgeous.
Amazing and brilliant! You are awesome at mixed media, and this one is no different! Great tag, mac
Wow! You really know your mixed media Mac! I love how this came out. I'd never be able to pull something like this off, but you have and done it so beautifully too! I love all the textures, colors, dimensions, that door. I'm amazed at how you got a sentiment on it too. It all just fascinates me how all the wonderful artsy supplies work so well together....but that is where you come in Mac, you know how to make them work well together! Just stunning! Hugs, Brenda
This is so incredible, Mac! As always, you make it sound so easy, like you just did a little of this and a little of that, no big deal ... oh to have that kind of artistic talent! This is a pure work of art, suitable for a gallery, my friend! I hope you are keeping well. Hugs, Darnell
Love this- loads of yummy texture and cool design. Take care and stay safe xxx
You are so awesome with mixed media and designs.
It's terrific!! I just adore the texture and all the interesting layers. It would not be out of place in a gallery that's for sure! Stay well.. I can see you are having fun!
Brilliant piece, love it to bits. Great stencils and you've really made them work for you. Have a lovely creative week. Hugs, Angela xXx
Oh gosh I dint think we have 13@arts on our challenge lists will have to investigate further. Just sitting here soaking in your tag it is a sensation piece of Mixed Media Art I just want to touch it! Have just been back to CAS mixup to see all the samples and am blown away. So many wonderful artists here in blog land. x
Fabulous tag. I just love that ornate doorway. Hugs Mrs A.
What a stunning textured tag - it’s really beautiful. I’m sorry there was no Tag Friday linky for you to share it with us (if this was the one). We had no entries last Tag Friday so we decided not to bother this time... our loss!
Very cute tag! Thank you for playing with 13arts!
You make sound and look so easy! If I tried that I'm sure I'd end up with a mess! You have created another amazing piece of art!
Wow, Mac ... what artistry in such a small space! Incredible detail and fantastic texture ... another gallery piece! Hugs, Anita :)
Delicious, just look at all that textured goodness!! I really like how their stencils express extra fine detail without any lose no matter what's used through them. It's wash and tickle of gold makes me very happy indeed.
A very beautiful piece that deserves to me much more than just a tag!
Sunday Hugs Tracey xx
Wow! What amazing layers of texture! Absolutely gorgeous!
Another MM masterpiece here Mac. You never fail with how creative your pieces are. This is stunning - so much detail dimension and you mastered the mood board here with those soft colours. What crackle paste did you use? You know I love that stuff! I too would love to see you create. We would all be in craft heaven.
Oh Mac, this is fantastic! Your tag is unique! Just like you, my friend. Sharing the steps is so very useful for me, an amateur in card making and mixed media. THANK YOU SO MUCH for doing it, sweetie. I give you a BIG BIG BIG hug!!!!!!
Oh my goodness - that's glorious! I can see exactly how much fun you were having. The colours, faded by the Mediterranean sun are beautiful, and all that texture is just fabulous. Love it, love it, love it.
New crafty goodies are the best! I love this. The texture of the crackle with the gold is what I was looking at first, but I really like the blue pattern that looks like it is peeking out under. Always fun to come see your projects!
