Mixed Media New Years Star Tag


I can hardly believe another year has come and gone!  I pray 2017 was a good one for you and 2018 will be the best yet!  Today my teamies and I are sharing my favorite posts of the year, Tag Fridays at A Vintage Journey.  Anytime we find a fifth Friday in the schedule, we add in a post filled with inspiring tags.  I thought what better time to do a sparkly New Years tag!


I embossed this gorgeous stamp by Tim Holtz repeatedly in gold, then gave a spritz of golden Glimmer Mist.  I wanted to allow lots of white space.


I computer generated the numerals and layered the hand cut banner over some tulle.


I simply tied a knot in the middle of two sections of tulle then stapled them to my tag, forming a circle.  


I cut several Spellbinders stars and gave them a crackle treatment.  I used black gesso and IndigoBlu Goldfinger paint in the cracks.  I mixed my shiny new Distress Glitter from my friend Sara Emily (a lovely little Christmas gift thank you!) and gold microbeads with DecoArt Decou-Page and brushed along my elements.


I added a few white stars to the mix and some glitter stock golden snowflake die cuts.  I finished with a few sequins and a Tim Holtz crystal embellishment.  I really enjoyed making this!  Happy New Year to you!  Make sure to visit the A Vintage Journey blog to see my teammates beautiful tag inspiration.

This tag is amazing! Perfect for the new year. My favorite is the crackly gold effect on the black stars and the micro-beads. Beautiful Autumn.

Autumn, this is such a unique design and is INCREDIBLY gorgeous! I love that embossed background to show off those crackled stars! Woo hoo! Makes me want to wear my party hat and blow my horn! What a cool way to use the glitter along with the microbeads! So happy you used it on this tag. I used the Nuvo drops on mine :) LOVE! Great tag, my friend! Happy New Year! Hugs!

Happy New Year! I'm definitely looking forward to 2018. The last 4-5 months of 2017 were brutal for my husband and I so we hope that's getting behind us and better things are ahead. Your tag is super special with the coordinated colors and glamorous touches of metallics!

What a stunning celebration tag, Autumn - perfect for the glamour and fireworks of New Year's Eve (though my New Year celebrations never quite seem to live up to that!). Fabulous golden sparkle and texture and wonderful explosions of tulle and stars and glittering snowflakes - it's amazing!
