I wanted to play again with today's awesome color combo as these are some of my favorites! I saw a tag from an item I bought at Goodwill sitting out on my desk so I decided to play around and make a mixed media tag. First step was to add a small bit of Espresso to the bottom of my tag as they'd torn off the bottom and the proportions were off. I then modge-podged a torn edge dictionary page over this. I put a light coat of Matte White Gesso over the page and then started playing! I sponged through some stencils-circles in Marina Mist at the top and a diamond pattern in Espresso and Marina in the bottom left corner. I stamped my hot air balloon that I inked up with markers. I masked over this and added images from Clockworks. I didn't like the way the circles showed through the balloon so I wet a brush and blurred the Cherry around and let it run. I took a Marina Mist marker and scribbled on acetate and wet with water and splattered the blue around. I added the goggles and some more Cherry with the border stamp as well as some sponging. I added a couple of metal accents and the crumpled bow, backed it all with Early Espresso and called it done!
