Hello Maja Design fans! Larissa here sharing a new project with you.

I know many countries celebrate Father´s Day on the third Sunday of June but here in Brazil we celebrate fatherhood on the second Sunday of August. So, it´s just around the corner and I decided to create a tag to embellish the gift I´ll give to my own father.

Let me share my creative process with you so you can recreate your own masculine tag.

I have used Vintage Autumn Basics line by Maja Design to create it.

Vintage Basics

First,  cut a rectangle (size 10 X 6 inches) from a Vintage Autumn Basics paper (BAS 643) and take off its corners to create the tag´s basic shape.

tutorial 1

Repeat this step with a different patterned paper or the other side of the same BAS 643 paper, but this time you´ll cut a smaller rectangle so we can work with our layers of gorgeous Maja Design coordinated patterned papers.

tutorial 2

Use your distresser tool and add some texture to its edges (you can do this with all your pieces of paper)

tutorial 3

Let´s paste the smaller one to our base tag shape:

tutorial 4

Cut a few more rectangles (7,5 X 5 inches aproximately from BAS 635 and 636 papers)

We are going to add more texture and color with the help of a stencil, molding paste, a palette knife and color sprays…

Spread one coat of molding Paste, take off the mask and add color…
