From plain to WOW!

I must admit, this was the easiest project ever! Tattered Angel Paint Systems are fabulous.

This project was actually used by pulling 2 products from a Christmas paint system.



Gather supplies, chipboard cut-outs (I made mine by using Tim Holtz Apothecary Bottle Sizzix Die), Red High Impact Paint and Leap Frog Glimmer Mist from the "Jolly" kit and a brush

 

 Coat each piece with Gesso and allow to dry (takes only a few minutes)



Apply a generous coat of Red High Impact Paint. Now this is where I lacked patiences for drying and dried with a heat gun. It was to my benefit though as the intense heat caused the paint to bubble which added awesome texture and made the bottle look even more authentic in the end! Lesson: DON'T BE AFRAID TO TRY NEW THINGS!



Next you apply a generous spray of the Leap Frog Glimmer Mist. This time I did sit back for about 5 minutes to allow the mist to seep into the cracks. I then gently tapped the excess off using a paper towel but I did leave pools of the mist on the areas where I wanted the most color.



Once dry I added the words and numbers using Modelling paste and Tim Holtz Halloween stencils. Once that dried I used a little Vintage Photo distress ink to the words/numbers and edges.


Finish product used on a recent scrapbook page.







Tattered Angels have a vast variety of paints, mists and so much more! I can't wait to use this realistic like look on so many more projects like butterfly's, random words, keys, clocks, etc!
