First of all pick some acrylic colors & make contrasts in your mind.

Then start working with one color on all tags,(so you will be safe from washing your paintbrushes on & off)I am using three or four brushes of different tip sizes..
When you will complete your base color of tags,then start making designs,lines,dots & doodles on it..I am working on all these free can pick any pattern too..
