Collage Background TIPS - Tag Journal - Art by Marlene

Hi Crafty friends, join me today as I share creating two new pages for my Chubby Chick Tag Journal that I started last month using collage papers as background and mix & match fom Art By Marlene paper elements.


I mixed and matched the ladies' bits and peaces from two paper elements books, linked in the supply list below. glued the head to the body and placed the whole image on awhite paper and used my scissors to cut all around the image leaving white border all around so my image can be defined against the busy background.


I used two tags from the tag journal kit, linked below, and glued collage papers on them to create quick backgrounds. I used a stencil and white acrylic to tone down the vibrant pink parts of the background.



Check the step by step video here for the tips on how to attach the collage papers to the tags without trapping any bubbles in between. And check how I decorated my background further more.
