Jaya added Art Stones for beutiful, and light-weight, texture! "I made these tags using the gorgeous new Cherry Blossom collection. For my background, I used the emboss resist technique and used the watercolor confections in Pastel Dreams to add color to the background. I also used lots of Prima flowers and Finn's Tin hearts to embellish the tags." ~ Jaya

Marta's application of crackle texture paste really added depth and dimension to her tag base, while Art Stones add a fun element. "I really like the lush colors while creating mixed-media works. This time I used a lot of media and flowers. I used impasto and watercolors for coloring the background on my tag." ~ Marta

Kavitha added Art Stones, Gesso, and Color Bloom Sprays for beautiful texture and color! "I made a couple of mixed-media tags using the brand-new Havana collection. I just love the soft teal, pink, and yellow colors on this collection. I have used tones of embellishments from the line, along with resin pieces, and laces. It's so easy to create pretty things with Prima products! Happy crafting." ~ Kavitha

Rust Paste come in many different colors and Nadya shows how to create beautiful texture with it on this set of tags! "Hello, everyone! I love to play with Rust paste sets, this time I chose Military set. But also is very fun to add some additional mixed media products. Some White sand paste for texture, and some Sparks acrylic paints for shiny effect. Prima flowers make every project more beautiful and attractive, so I was using "rough" materials but thanks to flowers and sparks result is interesting and soft. How I made them you could watch in the Video-tutorial that I prepared for you." ~Nadya Drozdova
