PaperArtsy Deap Sea Mixed Media Fish Tag


Hi friends!  It's me again trying to get back into the bloggy swing of things.  It seems that things will be harder than ever with the loss of Feedburner, challenges closing and the inevitable fast paced life we're growing accustomed to.  Let me just say how invaluable your interaction with us makers is!  Your follows, comments, shares and continued support mean everything to us and are what make the wheels keep on turning.  So thank you for being here! 

Today I have a mixed media tag to share with you.  I just had to have a play with the new to me PaperArtsy Hot Pick stamp set 2001.  I have wanted this stamp set for over a year now.  My tag was inspired by THIS awesome post by our very own Leandra Franich, the PaperArtsy queen herself. 

I used corrugated cardboard for my base and some of the layers.  I used a lot of Infusions powders to add my color. 

I used crackle paste, Grunge paste and Art Stones with a little Fresco chalk acrylic paint.  I made a motorized "bait" to lure the fish to their proverbial catch using a newer Hot Pick stamp set (2101).


I haven't been able to swim this summer because of my recent surgery, and this tag literally represents my desire to be in water.  I added a bit of Lavinia's new Mica Minerals powder to create sheen on the fish scales.  Now can I paint myself with it and call me a mermaid?  Pretty please!  Happy summer friends, Autumn

I'm sharing with:

This looks fantastic! Classic Autumn yumminess! It was so lovely to see a comment from you on my blog and I'm glad that you're blogging again too. So many people have deserted blogger solely for Instagram. Lucky we don't have to choose - we can do both! Have a lovely rest of the week xx

Stunning mixed media tag, I can see why you have been longing for this stamp set, i'm on the look out for some fish stamps myself just may have to treat myself. Love the colour combination and textured areas.

I can't tell you how you made my day by visiting my blog! It's so good to hear from you, but I think I may have missed something very important in your life, my friend, judging from your note. Hope all is well!!!! Looking forward to a time when we can get together again. You are always such a bright spot and so durn inspiring! Speaking of which, this is an amazing mixed media masterpiece!
