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 :-)
