Tattered Angels and Melissa France's

Here are some items created using Tattered Angels products and this month we were asked to work with some wood ...Wood comes in varying thickness and wood grains vary. In my following 3 projects, I experimented on recycled/ repurposed wooden platforms.Most items can be found even in your own home.

This piece of wall decoration was created on a 4"x4" wooden block. Because of the synthetic nature of this wooden block, the grains are not evidently obvious. However, it acts as a solid base for most mixed media projects.




I covered the wooden block with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam (Espresso). The result is instant and the texture of this water soluble paint with added glitter is amazing. I coated the block with 2 coats of paint and I love the subtle glitter sheen!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next, I made used of wooden spools and transformed the original blah brown to a rich and luscious brown. All with the help of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam (Espresso).
This results in a deep brown stain on the spools.

You might think twice before you discard the next Popsicle stick! I recycled these popsicle sticks and repurposed them into a shadow box. (I used 40!)
I had in mind, to create a white shadow box, so I applied gesso on all the sticks. Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam (Chandelier) does the job of covering the sticks with instant glam. The sticks (after arranging them into place) look elegant and completely transformed !
Here, i coated the seam binding with Glimmer Mist Chalkboard (Mint Chocolate Chip, Cotton Candy) and Glimmer Mist (Frost).




finally, over to the Color Room palette #32 :
