My Bucket of Tags: Its Time to Use them

I have this bucket of tags that I have used for mopping up paints, inks, etc.
Many different mediums, lots of tags.

I decided that I need to start using them. 
I closed my eyes and picked this one.

It has a real cool background.
Not sure how I created it.
I decided to leave the background alone.
Here is another close up of the tag.

All I used is watered down acrylic inks for the bird, black acrylic paint and glass beads to finish the tag. The beads are iridescent so they pick up the colors on the bird.

Here is the finished tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. What an "artsy" tag, Karenliz! Love the addition of the glass beads, especially for the bird. So much lovely texture! By the way, Marjie Kemper sent me over--so glad she did!
