It’s Better with Color! Part 4: Tattered Angels

2011 July 15




Happy Friday everyone and welcome to Part 4 of eclectic Paperie’s It’s Better with Color! blog hop!

This time Daisy challenged the E-TEAM to play with the wonderful array of Tattered Angels products.

And once again, I had way too much fun experimenting and getting inky.

But first, let me give you guys all the details of the blog hop!

2 winners will be randomly selected from the E-TEAM blogs to win a $25 eclectic Paperie gift voucher each.  All you have to do is visit each E-TEAM member and leave a comment at each blog.  You have until Sunday, July 17th to make your rounds, the winners will be announced on Monday, July 18th on the eP blog.

Make sure to leave a comment on the eP blog for a chance to win a new Tattered Angels mist assortment and more goodies.  The winner from the eP blog will also be announced on Monday, July 18th.

Now on to my experiment!  All I can say is…..somebody stop me!  You guys should see my room…Smile.

The first thing about Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists that I was thrilled over was the new formulation of their mists.  I noticed immediately that it was easier to mix and the spray was better.  Totally excited about that!  I also was introduced last year at CHA to their Glimmer Mist Chalkboard and I love their Glimmer Glaze.  But how about I show you some of the samples:


Really hard to see in the picture but it almost looks like flocking…. with a beautiful glimmer:


And because I don’t like to waste anything, including the over-spray or excess mist left on the Craft Sheet, I grabbed some Kodak Photo paper left over from some photo projects and gang, let me tell you….. I really, really love how that looks:


Types 1

The mini frames (above) were in the clearance aisle and were meant for markers I’m guessing because of the coating.  It took a while to dry and gave a watercolor type look:

It really was time for me to stop and start on my project, but did I?  Nope….


As expected, the mists show up really nice on top of gesso.  A little light on the chipboard and the grungepaper.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering what the difference is between Glimmer Mists and Perfect Pearls Mists, right?  Well, the  Perfect Pearls Mist is more sheer:

Doesn’t mean I like one more than the other, just all depends on what I want the end result to be or more than likely whatever looks best at the time.

Now to the Chalkboard samples – it has more coverage, like more pigment along with the shimmer:

Grungeboard, those mini frames, watercolor paper scrap and another vacation bible school clearance item – wooden butterfly.

I totally love their Glimmer Glaze.  It’s like nail polish-I love that little nail polish brush and  – yes, it DOES look good on your nails Smile.

and this was the first time trying the Glimmer Glam.  It definitely has more ‘sparkles’ although you can’t see it in the picture (I was getting tired I think…. hands were starting to get shaky):

So are you curious what I ended up making with all those experiments?  Don’t laugh ok? …..


Remember that Kodak Photo Paper?  I punched out some butterflies and see that rolled flower?  Can you guess what it’s made out of?  It’s a scrap of canvas drop cloth as in painter’s drop cloth.  Yes?  No?  The treated ribbon is seam binding.



I also have some Post It Picture paper which I used as a mask.  After looking at it I thought why not use it:






I added the Art Parts circle which was left over from a previous project, not sure if I should have done that……and I just found out that Crafting Ireland has a Blue, Yellow & Green color challenge.  I think I'll submit this :-)
