(My First!) Mixed Media Tag

This was so much fun!  I'd shied away from mixed media for several reasons, but decided to give it a whirl while out of school and stuck at home waiting on a repairman.  I think this qualifies as mixed media:  Here's what I used:  Watercolor paper, old book page, cardboard coffee sleeve, crochet cotton, Prima watercolors, distress ink, "regular ink", white acrylic for distressing, and gold metallic ink for stenciling.  There's a bit of lace, part of a die cut, and a stamped feather that I painted over, got wet, and scrunched up.  Best of all, everything was "on hand" except for the stencil which I purchased last weekend.

Such a gorgeous tag. Love the design. Thanks for joining our previous challenge here at WORD ART WEDNESDAY. We hope you will join us again in our current challenge soon. Leaving you with the inspiration found in Philippians 4:13 which says: "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
