Australia Day mixed media tag with Sarah

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with a mixed media tag, this time using the new Australia Day acrylic piece and Outback Australia rubber stamp from Memory Maze Lasercuts.
For this mixed media tag, i got out my 3x5 inch gelli plate to create the background. There are many great tutorials for gelli printing, be sure to google this or search via youtube. The background was created using Dylusions paints with stencils and stamped on to the tag using the gelli plate as the stamping platform. If you'd like to see more of how this was created, leave me a comment below and I can put something together to demonstrate this technique.

I used the new Outback Australia stamp from Memory Maze with black Staz On ink to create texture on the background. I like the versatility of this stamp on this background - you can see parts of the flag, parts of the windmill etc to give a real Australian feel to it.
The photos printed for this tag were from the Australia Day BBQ we had at our house - the mega water fight scene and an Australia flag tattoo my young son wore that afternoon. It was fun to print them in a smaller size, perfect for this tag.

The Map of Australia acrylic piece is just spectacular! The black acrylic highlights the edges of the Australia map, whilst the little kangaroo cut out component allows the background work to peek through.
The wooden veneer range of options for embellishing your products from Memory Maze is enormous. Click here for the range of chipboard and wood veneer pieces. The piece used on this tag was from my stash, but it's not hard to find one that suits your needs online at Memory Maze.
