Stamped watercolor mixed media tags: moon faces

When I look at these circle faces I think of the moon, and today I let that inspire me as I created a pair of tags with these new Dina Wakley stamps. Supplies used/affiliate links are listed below. What was the inspiration? I wanted to play with some texture on my tag and adding stamping and color while the tag was still wet.

This was a lot of fun and the results are lovely! If you are local to Northern California I will be teaching a class on them (100% of class fee to go to a local non-profit that helps those with cancer) next month at It’s All About the Scrapbook in Dixon. Not local or can’t make it? Don’t worry – I’ll share with you the condense version of “how-to” here in my YouTube video. 

I was just speaking to a friend the other day about how to figure out new ways to use the same supplies and I believe truly the key is let go of expectation and play. For me? Often that’s on a tag, scrap of paper, or in an art journal. Not trying to make a project – just enjoying the process and seeing what I come up with. I have a lot of these kinds of projects to share with you – sometimes the play results in nothing but other times (like this!) I really love the results. Here are the supplies used – links go to

Dina Wakley Stamp Set
New Dylusions Sprays (all 6 colors used- but mostly the violet and periwinkle)
28 Lilac Lane embellishments (assorted)
White paint (or gesso)
Heidi Swapp gold spray
Tim Holtz chit chat stickers, fibers, a manila no.8 tag, and black archival ink

I just love the texture, the color, and the overall feel of these tags. Not only were they fun to make but they’re exactly what I had hoped for when I set out to make them! Remember when working with techniques like these you can apply them to any and all projects – just change the surface, size, or add to a larger project!

  1. That was fun! I don’t know how you thought of using the mist tube as a painting tool, but I’m going to try it. Love what you did with that Dina Wakely stamp.
