Crew member Sheri Whitfield shares with us a simple mixed media tag featuring a nice range of Tattered Angels paints and a few simple techniques you can follow along with as she demonstrates on her YouTube Video.

“This is an altered tag I made from a number five shipping tag that had “mop up” color already on it. It features Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and a few High Impact Paints. I used modeling paste and stencils to create texture and depth, which are then highlighted by the Glimmer Mists.” Sheri Whitfield

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (Merlot Gold, Dijon and Gold)
