Mix Match Mix Match

Friday, June 14, 2013

 
Today is all about mixing & matching!
 
I usually like to color coordinate everything, but it's the weekend! It's time to let go of the norm and have some fun with different patterns, colors, and designs.
 
My tag is actually made from acrylic. Be sure to get yours from the Clear Scraps store. I had some extra square pieces left from their 6" x 6" acrylic album and decided to make a tag.
 
And by the way, I'm entering this into the The Mixy-Matchy Style Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.   
 
 
My tag was so fun to put together. Before I get into the details, I wanted to share something....
 
 
 Once the acrylic tag was cut, I added patterned paper on top to cover the front.
 
I have soooo many 6 x 6 paper pads lying around. I used those to make and layer paper strips across the front. The key is to use paper with different patterns and designs on them.
 
I didn't want to overwhelm the design so I used a solid color heart and sentiment in the center of the tag.
 
Being a little mixy-matchy wasn't so bad. I had a lot of fun with this one.
 
Happy Weekend!
 
Supplies:
6 x 6 Acrylic - Clear Scraps
Paper - various from American Crafts
Heart - Heidi Grace Designs
"Loved" Sentiment - American Crafts
