Bon Voyage Tags for 7 Dots Studio- with Video Tutorial

I'm up again this month on the 7 Dots Studio blog as its my turn to showcase a tutorial.
I've created two mixed media tags for you today using the 7 Dots Studio Destination Unknown collection.

Here is the step by step video tutorial below:

I wanted to create two easy to make mixed media tags to show everyone how simple it is, to dive into the world of mixed media, without too much effort or fear. I tried to simplify and explain as much as I could so people would want to try out different techniques and mediums

These  cute tags can be given to someone who is going away on a trip or retiring from a job. The possibilities are endless. Hope you enjoy my project and the the video.

Of course I couldn't design these without some beautiful Prima Marketing flowers. The flowers I picked matched the Destination Unknown papers perfectly and I just loved adding them to the tags.
