I wish, in the meantime I did get to play with some Parisian inspired items thanks to Tattered Angels and Pink Paislee. If you follow the Tattered Angels blog (of course you do right? if not no time like the present to start) then you have already seen some of these projects, but here in my blog land you get a bonus feature- an extra layout
Up first a layout about my love for small vintage things – curio boxes, alarm clocks, apothecary jars, handkerchiefs from my grandmother. Many of this items hang out on a small side table in my bedroom – I call it the table of pretties.
It’s a little hard to tell from the picture but the lace is also misted with Cherub Pink — the perfect soft touch. So you know that glimmer glam is a fabulous paint full of glimmery goodness, but did you know that you can also use it as a fabric stiffener? The bow on this page looks so perfect because it’s hardened to be so. Just apply the glam to any fabric – shape and let dry – voila!
Up next a party page – nothing better than turning 3 and getting a box full of princess barbies.
I used the mono-print technique with the butterfly screen, some shipping tags and Turquoise Blue and Cherub Pink.
Have you seen all of the beautiful butterfly wreathes popping up on Pinterst? I couldn’t help myself, I just had to make one.
I used the Slice to cut the butterflies and then misted them with turquoise blue and mustard seed, these two combine to make a great green too. I spray painted a grapevine wreath with white and then used floral wire to adhere. That’s another tip – buy the wire by the floral section – not beading – same stuff but cheaper and comes with a built in cutter in flowers – silly!
One of my favorite mist techniques is using the background/leftover page that I have sprayed on top of. This time I set out with intention and temporarily adhered the butterflies to another piece of paper to make this last layout
It was awfully kind and smart of Pink Paislee and the House of 3 folks to make a resist grid paper so I could get my butterflies to line up perfect. Once the background was dry I did a little paper quilting. Ribbon is actually athletic tape misted with Dragonfly mist.
There you have it – be sure to pop over to the Tattered Angels Blog and check out what the rest of the team did this month – really fabulous creations. I think we are all happy to be in our paper and mist comfort zone.
