I confess when I buy clothes and there is a nice tag attached to it I keep it. I can’t believe I’m the only one right? I create backgrounds on my tiny tags in batches. With backgrounds done the fear of the blank page is gone. This tag was already painted black and I added some paper to it.
I love to add texture to the background but I don’t always want it to be seen. You know that hidden texture that can be seen when you look up close to a painting that you didn’t notice at first? I love that. I like to use TCW gel mediums for that. They are crystal clear and you don’t always notice it’s there. On this tag I added TCW920 Tropical Fronds to the tag with TCW9006 Gel Medium and I let it dry. I love that I can see the paper through the gel medium.
I was going to keep it black and white but I changed my mind. I used my fingers and added paint to it. I sprayed parts of it with water and let the paint mix together.
To finish the tag I added TCW914 Plumeria to the tag with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste and added a word sticker.
What do I do with all these tiny tags? I put them in art journals, use them as a tag for a present, bookmarks, and some I love so much that I frame. There is no limit to the use of a tiny tag.
Do you keep your clothing tags? If you use TCW Stencil in your tag creation we would love it see it. Please share it with us on our Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest using hashtag #tcwstencillove.

What a wonderful idea. I will never look at the tags on things I buy the same again.
Thank you! Once you start you’ll be hooked!
