Smell of Japan.. Kind of

Hello, dear painters! Irit is here again and this time with my own mixed technique  of making a background grid with Wonder Tape, paints and microbeads and finally to make  a Japanese style tag...
OK, kind of.. I don't have any Japanese stamps or products, but I am sure that  they are known for this Cherry blossom festivals.
Here is our  product list:
Cardstock  white tag- Ranger, but any tag will do.
Pink cardstock- American Crafts, but any pink will do as we are going to paint  after all.
Wonder tape- 1/8''
Creative Inspirations Paints: Ivory,Fuchsia, Blush
Microbeads- silver, any brand you have.
And for embellishments: Sacura punch (EK), crystals and pearls, ribbons

So here we go!
Step 1: Add your Wonder tape randomly over the tag and please, don't overlap it as we want to be able to peel it later. Now begin to paint with you paints  and don't afraid to paint over the lines, Using a tape for a grid painting makes it very easy to paint without a lot of fine work. Let it dry and really, let it dry… A lot of time, unless you want those microbeads to be over you paint as well.

And here are the paints I used on this project:

Step 2: Peel the orange tapes and sprinkle some silver microbeads all over the peeled glue. Add as much
as you want till the full coverage.
Your background is done and you can see the beaded background on the final project as  I just forgot to take my photo on this stage of crafting.
Step 3: Punch a lot of Sacura flowers from the white or  light pink cardstock. Add some  pink paint over.  Glue your flowers randomly over your tag, I adhered them on the places with bad microbeards coverage, mostly junctions, let them dry. Add some crystals and pearls as your flower centers. Add some clear glaze to keep those  pearls and crystals on their place as this " self adhesives" are non adhesives after all.. LOL.
 Tie  a few  ribbons and twines  inside your tag. 

Your tag is done! 
Now try this technique with another colors  and different embellishments. like blues and stars, browns and leaves etc.– works great!
See you next week with another fun tutorials using Creative Inspirations Paints.
