Art With Limited Supplies

Happy Monday, everyone! Just because it’s the start of the work week doesn’t mean we can’t take some artsy time for ourselves! Today I’m sharing some tags that I created with a very verrry limited supply list…


I’ve actually been in the process of moving, and just bought my first home last week! So things have definitely been crazy… and things have also been stuck in boxes! In an earlier post I showed you how to spruce up some travel pouches. This post shows how I used those supplies to makes some fun tags!


I started with an old tag I was going to throw away and some old book text. I glued the two together and then fringed the edges with my scissors


The rest of my tags are created using only Gelatos and The Crafter’s Workshop 6×6 stencils.


I used the “Believe Script” stencil with a wet sponge to wipe away some of the color. You could also use a baby wipe to create this look (but my baby wipes were in a box!)


Next I used the “Daily Buzz” stencil to add stems and flowers. I placed the stencil where I wanted the stems and rubbed green Gelatos with my finger. Next I placed the flower and rubbed Red and Pink Gelatos over the stencils.




Here’s my finished tag….


I created another tag using all the same steps just with different colors and stencils…


Thanks for stopping in today! With just a few supplies you can still create some very fun tags! Happy stenciling 🙂
