Tattered Angels :) :) :)

Hello Hello :)

Today I would like to share with you what I have created for Tattered Angels this month. Unfortunately the site is having a few technical problems and a lot of the DT haven't been able to share their creative fun on the Tattered Angels blog! aaaaaah technology LOL :) :) :)

So this month we are sharing projects that fit with a theme of Family, Life, Home decor and Christmas, kind of thing. I thought I would alter a few christmas decorations that I had been hoarding from post christmas sales from early on in the year. 

So these are what they looked like before altering them with the Fabulous Tattered Angels Glaze and Glam.

The Glaze and Glam is just perfect for altering decorations and home decor items; they allow you to personalise your festive decorating to suit your own colour preferences. You could even get the kids involved it is that quick and easy.

Cheers for now, I do hope you are having a great week :)

Imaginarium Designs :) :) :)

Hello Hello :)

I am sharing with you today the post I did for Imaginarium Designs :) :)

I did a guide on how I created a certain background look, I do hope you enjoy :)

I created this layout background [below] using the awesome new Imaginarium Designs chipboard Butterfly and a 12 x 12 grey board background.

To begin with I have some of my favourite products [other than Imaginarium Designs];

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist - Teal High Heel

Viva Decor Croco Crackling - White

Krylon Gesso Spray

To begin I first adhere the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard Butterfly to my background using fast clear drying gel glue.

Then using a spatula I apply the crackling medium roughly and randomly over and around the butterfly, and allow it to dry and crackle.

When it is dry and all crackled I apply a light coat of spray gesso.

When the gesso is dry I then apply a liberal coating of Chalkboard mist over the background; applying a more concentrated area of mist over the butterfly.

This is then allowed to dry. Whilst I do use the heat gun to dry the mist I don't recommended it as the fumes from the gesso are toxic.

Here is a close up of the wonderful effect that can be achieved :)

Well I do hope you enjoyed this mini guide to how I create some of my layout backgrounds.

Cheers and Happy Creating
