Hello from Sweden! I hope you’re having a wonderful week, with lots of creating and misting! I am sharing my April projects today, two layouts and a couple of tags.
I created my background for this layout by first applying some gesso and when it was dry I used two different Glimmer Mists: Patina and Key Lime Pie, and one Chalkboard Glimmer Mist: Charcoal, on top of the gesso and the pink cardstock. The butterflies are painted with Glimmer Glam Pink Lipstick, the lace is coloured with Glimmer Mist Patina and I also splattered some Glimmer Glam Mermaid over the background. The thickers were misted with Glimmer Mist Cherry Blossom.
For my second layout I used a stencil from Crafter’s Workshop together with gesso and I then painted my entire background with Glimmer Glam Espresso Bean.
I used Glimmer Mist Olive Vine on the Doily, Chalkboard Glimmer Mist Banana Pudding on the lace and Glimmer Glaze Orange Crush on the wooden bird.
I really love the look of the background, entirely covered in Glam!
The Olive Vine mist is so beautiful, with the green and gold together.
Finally, I created these two tags. I wrote “tack” on them, which means “thank you”. I think they might serve as teachers gifts at the end of the term and since I’m normally always doing those things last minute, I am quite pleased with myself having about a month and a half to find some gifts to go with them…
I started out with collaging some old book pages to my tags. I then added gesso and created some texture, before painting with acrylic paint. I then stamped the butterflies using stamps from Purple Onion Designs and covered the tags with Glimmer Glam Organic Garden. I added more pattern on top of the dry glam, using gesso and a home made stencil. When the gesso was dry I misted the tags with Glimmer Mist Key Lime Pie and Glimmer Mist Lemon Zest.
The flowers were misted with Chalkboard Glimmer Mist Strawbery Shortcake, Glimmer Mist Cherry Blossom and Glimmer Mist Patina.
I painted the clear buttons with Glimmer Glam Chandelier.
The ribbons were misted too, using the same mists as above.
