It's Spring! There's an energy in the air and we feel the creativity starting to stir! Aneta Matuszewska and Katelyn Grosart share great Spring-ready tags for us today! Aneta challenges herself to use two colors for her gorgeous tag. Then, Katelyn shows us how to make Mixed Media magic on a tag canvas!
"Quick and easy to make spring tag made with using just 2 colors. Fun to make and a little bit challenging." ~Aneta

Look at all the luscious layers and inky goodness on this great tag from Katelyn!
"Mixed Media has become such a big part of the papercrafting industry. So today I’ve created for you a beautiful Mixed Media tag using some of the Staples, the Nature Sketchbook collection as well as a variety of mixed media supplies. I hope you enjoy all the photos and are inspired to create your own mixed media tag." ~Katelyn
Tip: To finish the tag, take a splatter brush with black paint and splatter over the entire tag.
Tip: To highlight the stenciled area, use some white gold wax and rub over the stenciled area to highlight the area.
