a down-sized mixed media project using collage, paint, mark-making and embellishment

The project PDF includes links to the four video parts of the course, the project photo, materials/supply list, written project instructions, and template for the tag. Be sure to save the PDF to your computer!

In this fun class we make small (3" x 4 1/2") embellished collage pieces in the shape of tags. The technique is what I call "embellished collage." We'll apply focal and background images, add touches of acrylic paint, then embellish our tags with borders, metallic pen, and various types of mark making. Finally, we'll finish them with ribbon and fancy drops.


The tags have several uses. Obviously, they make special, spectacular gift tags. But they can also be bookmarks, or - with appropriate text on the front, back, or both -  inspirational reminders, or even very special business cards. And you can make them in any size or shape you want.


These tiny jewels are a joy to make, a joy to give, or a joy to keep and enjoy.
