I made some holiday gift tags recently and thought it would be fun to show you how it worked out. They are so easy to make and lots of fun.
Mixed media paper
Tombow watercolor markers
I selected some bright colors from my stash of dual tip Tombow markers for some pretty lights.
In my mixed media sketchbook I used a pen to make squiggly lines for a string of lights. Then I started adding small lights randomly placed on the strings.
Here is a view after adding more lights in different colors. The shapes aren’t perfect but that’s ok.
I added a little base to each light. That little detail really makes a difference. Here’s a view after I cut the page in half.
I trimmed each section into smaller rectangles and then snipped the corners of each tag. They turned out pretty cute. 😊
I was inspired by theshabbycreekcottage on Instagram. She painted the lights with watercolor using a small brush. I thought it would be fun to try using my markers for this instead. I love how they turned out.
I hope you are doing well and having fun. Thank you for all of your kindness and support. Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
