DARE TO BE CREATIVE TAG tutorial by Lee-Anne

Hello everyone, Lee-Anne here today with a quick and easy tag tutorial for you!

I started out by adding some torn tissue tape randomly on my manilla tag:

Next, I sponged on three shades of Distress Inks:

Using my ARTplorations Retro Circles stencil and two shades of the same Distress Inks, I added some depth:

Then, using my ARTplorations Some Birds stencil, I added two birds. The flying bird has been made with Distress Paint while the perched bird was made with Distress Spray Stain:

Next, I again used the Retro Circles stencil and some thinned white gesso randomly on the tag:

I drew around both birds with a waterproof marker and then used a Stabilo pencil with water and small paint brush to add some shading:

For the final touches, I added some white dots with a marker and then circled them with the black marker. Then I added the sentiment (partial) from SUBWAY ART BUILDERS: Create with a black brush pen.

Hope you've enjoyed the tutorial and it's inspired you to go and create!
