I purchased it...seems like eons ago. I've carried it around in my tote for just about that long.... I decided to bring it out, dust if off.... BUT.... what can a person create with just ONE bottle?
Well.... let me tell you.... a card, a layout and a sampler frame.... THAT'S WHAT ONE CAN CREATE.... and I have a few sprays left.....
I had absolutely NO IDEA how amazing the products from Tattered Angels ARE!!! All the colors, the chip tiles, the screens.......OH THE CREATIVITY OF IT ALL!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
So....here is the card....
I used my border punch...Treading Water by Fiskars...and punched the edge of the card.
I then, punched another piece of paper. I placed it on the Tortilla Bazzill, starting right to left and sprayed the Copper Glimmer Mist. I moved the Treading Water "stencil" to the left and sprayed again....repeating the process several times.
I then laid a piece of lace to the left of the layered sprays and spritzed again.
I then sprayed my craft mat with the Copper Glimmer mist. I dabbed the white lace into the spray. Getting a mix of white and copper. I dried the lace and basted it to create the ruffle. I adhered another piece of lace on top.
I punched a flower out of handmade paper, spritzed with the Glimmer mist....squinched it in my hand....dried the flower.
I sprayed a piece of Maya Road chipboard to achieve a base color....then I spritzed my Craft Mat with some more Glimmer mist...ran my fingers through it to create puddles goodness.... then dabbed the chipboard into the puddles to create blobs of color on the chipboard!
I used my new Hero Arts stamp - Special Moments..... LUV that saying.... then put it all together. Added a vintage button, a flower I had crocheted and a bow tied from twine.
the oohhlaliciousness of it all!!!

The journaling reads...Walt's first time on Ang's 4 wheeler. When he arrived back at the house, he climbed off the machine and KISSED THE GROUND!
This layout out was soooo much fun to make and my DH is such a trooper to let me share it with ya'll!!!

Lately I have found all my layouts were looking the same....so I created this layout using stamps, rubons and inchies.....not the norm for me.....and WOW!!! The paper I used is from Upsy Daisy Designs...an awesome paper company out of Canada...way to go! The paper collection is called "Unwritten"! Great stuff!!
So I encourage you to try something different....go through your drawers of "STUFF" and create something "OUTSIDE THE BOX!"
