Distressed Tissue Paper Tags. 9/11/17

Happy M.O.M Day.

For those who are not familiar with this term, M.O.M. it is for Modus Operandi (a particular way or method of doing something) Monday.  On Monday's I bring you a new or old techniques that perhaps you don't know or did years ago and may have forgotten. Things that I see on the internet, Pinterest, my local scrapbooking store (Scrapbook Cafe in La Puente) or just my own techniques.

Today we are bring back the fun in Mod Podge and Tissue Paper.  And we will throw in a little distressing inks and shimmer sprays.

Tattered Angeles Black Magic, Prima Empress Gold, Prima Pot Marigold

Lets start with gathering up our supplies. For the main part of the tag you will need

A tag
Mod Podge (any type, I used Gloss Lustre)
Tissue Paper (I used white that had sparkles in it)
Paper Towels

Apply a good layer of Mod Podge all over the tag.

While the Mod Podge is still wet start apply the tissue paper. Scrunch its up, bunch it up, get lots of layers going.

Now go over all of it with Mod Podge, again don't be stingy with the glue. Put on a good layer of it otherwise your paper will not hold onto the tag.

Now let it dry. You can use your heat / craft gun but hold it far away from it or the tissue paper may burn. It doesn't take long to air dry. My sample took a couple of hours but I'm sure it was dry in an hour, I got busy with another project.

Once dry, trim the excess tissue paper off the edges and start apply distressing ink. I used my blending pads and just tapped the pads all over. You can see as I changed colors. Black Soot, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, and Peeled Paint.  

Next is set the blending pad off to the side and picked up the ink pad and started dabbing it on the tag.

Now I pulled out the shimmer sprays.

I just love the way it turned out. In fact I think I am going to make it part of my next album. Which is going to be another Graphic 45 Master Detective Collection.

Happy Scrapping !!
