Welcome to Sunny Days week and some seriously sunny projects to brighten your day or decor! We’re focused on that beautiful light in the sky given its importance to us and life. Let’s face it…without it…we’d not be here discussing it!LOL

A little Sun Trivia to Kick things off…the volume of the Sun is so great that you would need 1.3 million Earth-sized planets to fill it. Not even all the planets combined could fit inside the Sun. Amazing right?!

Hello Sunshine! Mixed Media Tag with Deco Foil


By Heather Collins

I love making tags! I have made a jumbo tag every month this year. And am really enjoy the whole process. It is like a mini canvas in the form of a mixed tag.

Hello Sunshine! Mixed Media Tag Instructions



To start this project I gessoed the jumbo tag with two coats. Then I ran the Deco Foil Clear Designer Toner – Dainty Hearts and Deco Foil Transfer Sheets in Lilac through my Minc twice on level 4 for the sky background of my tag. The Toner Sheet was cut down to cut the tag. Next, I die cut Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets – Green Envy using the “Dare 2B Artzy Curve Slimline Die” to look like the grass. To glue the pieces down I used the iCraft Ultra Bond Permanent Dries Clear Adhesive.



Then I stamped “House Mouse Designs Cling Painted Pansies” using “Brutus Monroe Raven Detail Ink” and colored used “Derwent Inktense” colored pencils and a water brush. Then I fussy cut out the image and attached the same with the same image. I cut another layer of grass and popped up with 3D Foam tape.



To finish the tag off I die cut clouds with the same die set the Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets in White Latte. Two of them I adhered directly to the sheet with the iCraft Ultra Bond Permanent Dries Clear Adhesive and the last cloud with the 3D foam tape. The “Hello Sunshine” title is a “Thickers” sticker.
