Tattered Angels on wood #3

My last Tattered Angels project for November, I wanted to make a scrapbook layout so of course my wooden bits had to be Kaisercraft (their range of wood products is extensive) I have misted the bird with a mix of Burnt Red and Brick Glimmermists, the leaves were misted with English Ivy and Mustard seed. I used a light spray of English Ivy on the background paper before adding the fence at the bottom with an Ironworks screen which I misted as a mask and then flipped over to stamp with so as not to waste the lovely Brick Glimmermist.
Papers are from the gorgeous Graphic 45 Steampunk range

Thanks for dropping by, hope I have inspired you to go forth and get messy with mists :-D

Tattered Angels on wood #2

 This is the back side of an old gilt frame, you know the ones with all the fancy molding. Well the molding is falling off and the back looked so lovely and grungy with the marks from the tape remnants that I decided to use it back-to front :-)  I painted it all over with Hayride Glimmer Glam and added some Chianti Glimmer Glaze highlights. I made it into a 'Peg' board ;-) with some chicken wire and an old piece of rope I found in the garden. Decorated with Glimmer Glass leaves misted with Iridescent Gold Glimmermist and a few Prima flowers. I also misted the clothes pegs with English Ivy Glimmermist. It turned out so nicely, now I just have to figure out where to put it.

Tattered Angels is having a totally awesome giveaway right now here, so if you're after some of their gorgeous products.....

Tattered Angels on wood #1

This was a first for me, using Tattered Angels products on wood. I am not generally an off the page kinda gal but it was such an eye-opening experience to find and transform some wooden bits I will most likely have another go. This little cabinet was given to me by a friend recently, it started off as light raw pine (with a few cobwebs). I totally love it, and it's just big enough to fit my mist bottles standing up.
I painted the whole thing with Hayride Glimmer Glam which brought out the grain in the wood beautifully and added a golden hue with a stunning verdigris highlight. I then added some colour with Chianti Glimmer Glaze using my finger. The patterns were added using the Ironworks screens (as both a mask and stamp) and Tattered Leather Glimmermist. A Glimmer Glass butterfly painted on the back with Chianti and misted on the front with Iridescent Gold Glimmermist adorns the door, along with some lace, flowers, zipper pulls and old coins.So much fun to alter and I am very happy with the result. I also have plenty of paint leftover :-)

The gorgeous Gigi...

Gigi Scott that is, did a fabulous, fun, and so easy to follow class online. Here is my result...
I love it, Thanks Gigi!

Kraft It Up and others...

I've had a bit of a scrap on since getting 'wings' :-)
So I've done a few blog challenges among other things.
First up is the Nov KIU challenge - use decorative edges

Then one for Scrap the Boys, a super hero theme, I decided to do DH, he's a big boy!
And lastly WW1 - White + yellow + journal directly onto layout (not sure if stamping a journal block on the page first counts..... oh well). It was a quick and easy page and it tells the story :-)
Now off to work on a couple of other exciting projects for Tattered Angels and Shop & Crop then maybe even squeeze in another challenge for Artastic.
Thanks for dropping by, don't forget to *wave* :-)
