Glimmer on Glass

This months brief for Tattered Angels was 'glass'. I hadn't ever tried it before so it was a real eye-opener for me. I found Glimmer Glaze the best product for the job, it sticks well and can be made to look either transparent or opaque. My first project was a small glass jar which I have done up to hold chocs for a thank-you gift. I have used a TA tag and letter stickers, misted of course.
















 Then I found an old Heidi Swapp mirror album. I stamped some swirls with Stazon then used these as a guide to paint Glimmer Glaze around the edge. I trimmed it with some yummy crepe ribbon (misted) and velvet ribbon, some Kaiser bling, Dymo, fabric alpha stickers and a lovely Girl's Paperie charm.
This is one of the inside pages, misted with several different colours and using a piece of Glimmer Glass as a mask.
 Thirdly, a layout. I have misted a tree Glimmer Screen then used it to 'stamp' onto transparency. I cut a grassy edge mask and misted under the tree. Lots of stunning colours make up the background, again with some Glimmer Glass used both as masks and embellishments. I painted the back with yellow to brighten the colour.

So those are my official projects but having had so much fun and explored so little I kept on playing. I tried misting/masking between sandwiched transparencies, it took a little while to dry but they are now firmly stuck together and ready for cutting out and adding to other projects.

Then I tried mists, a combination of Chalkboard and Glimmer Mists, to decorate some cheap acrylic goblets. They took overnight to dry and are now waiting for further attention. I think they'll make nice treasure containers once I seal the outside with a matt spray varnish and trim with some ribbons and bling :-)

















I'm so impressed with how Tattered Angels paints and mists have come up on all these surfaces I have a few more things in the pipeline yet! OMG such fun!
Hope I have inspired you to have a go.
Thanks so much for dropping by :-)
