Feathers, Butterflies, and paint splats :) :) :)

Hello Hello Guys

My apologies that this post is a little late, the internet/wordpress and I are having issues :)

For April I would like to share with you 3 layouts I created using 3 very simple background effects featuring the awesome Tattered Angels mists and glaze.

With this first layout I have used a very simple but effective background technique to highlight my featured photo. I have begun with creating a splat of gesso and then allowed it to dribble down the page. I have then added another splat/pool of colour over this, just as you would use layers of patterned paper and card stock to created a colourful matt/background for my photo. Here I have the beautiful Fairway Chalkboard glimmer mist, and then added a few extra splats of colour with the Valencia, Chalkboard glimmer mist.


This particular layout I have used a favourite technique with Glimmer mist and misted water to create a splatty water mark effect; I have created a mini step-by-step using this technique creating a similar layout HERE :)  I have used one of my favourite glimmer mists; Black Magic. I have finished off the title alpha and chipboard hearts with a beautiful glimmer glaze, and added a few extra splats around them and my photo.


With this layout I have used one of the fabulous new CHA 2012 release Crafters Workshop templates, designed by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. I used white gesso with the peacock feather template to create a background design. This was then ‘coloured’ using glaze on the feather ‘eye’ and then a covered with a combination of; Twinkle Yellow Glimmer mist, and Firefly ,  Fairway, and Calypso Chalkboard glimmer mists.

Well that is my creative Tattered Angels fun for this month, I do hope you enjoy.

Cheers and Happy Scrapping :)
