Beach Canvas - Tattered Angels and Graphic 45
Here's a canvas project I created for Tattered Angels for CHA, using their new glimmer mists, screens and chips. I also used the new fresh-off-the-press On The Boardwalk collection from Graphic 45.
Let me say that glimmer mists work really well on canvas. I used the new Caribbean Blue and Sunshine over the fantastic new On The Beach glimmer screens on the canvas, topped off with some Iridescent Gold for glint-in-the-sun shine. And my favourite this season - Dazzling Diamonds on the Prima flower and Dazzling Diamonds and Bubbles on the TA glimmer chip. Look at how the white glimmer mist adds just that right touch of shimmer to the petals. So pretty!
I misted this chipboard heart with Candy Apple Red and crackle glazed it. The patterned paper's from Graphic 45's new On The Boardwalk collection. Love the vintage images.
This seahorse glimmer glass is part of the new Beach collection. I also dabbed on some of the new Glimmer Glaze in Emerald Cove on the top left corner with a paint brush. You can see that the glaze is of a thicker consistency than the mist. I used the new Crushed Shells glimmer mist on the manila tag, misting over another new glimmer screen from the Under The Sea collection.
I had fun playing with different textures for this altered canvas and trying out some of the new glimmer mist colours. Off to create more. :)
