Mixed Media Tag with Toni

Hi everyone, hope your week is starting off fabulous !  Art Anthology has a beautiful moodboard to inspire you to get messy with your paints. My design team project is a fun tag. Le'ts get started !

I decided to create some prints from my gelli plate. Using Art Anthology Shine paint in Canary, Ruby and Kelly I applied with brayer roller. 
 Once dry I cut out a dragonfly 3 times using Sizzix layered Dragonfly with Texture Fade. I wanted dimension and multiple wings for my dragonfly. 
The foundation of the card I stamped using T!m's new stamps Entomology with black archival ink. I also added an Ideology Philosophy Tag. 
Dry brush a bit of white gesso over the images to soften and blend into the background. 
Then applied my dragonfly and attached a metal key to the body. 

Using white gesso I painted over the top of the T!m's Ideology Quote Band and attached to tag using twine. 
Hope you enjoyed and were inspired. I always appreciate your comments and wishing you a creative month of July ! xoxo Toni
