Playing with Glimmer Mist

CHA is coming up next month, so I’ve been playing and experimenting with Tattered Angels products!  I love to just play and make new discoveries (new to me anyway…I don’t get to surf the web much so maybe someone else has made the same discovery!)   Usually, my discoveries are made through trial and error…something I intended to go one way and it went in a different direction and I think….hmmmm I kinda like that!  One of these discoveries, I’m saving to use on a CHA project, but here’s a fun one I discovered while just “playing” because I was waiting for something to dry (which happened to be that other discovery I mentioned). 

Here are the results of my play session. 

Embossing using a stamp instead of a file folder. I don’t know which color glimmer mists I used because I was just playing and grabbed what was around…usually a light, medium and a dark color.  If I had to guess (based on the backside of the paper which is pinkish), I may have used Pomegranite, Maple Sugar and Nougat…but don’t quote me ;)  I definitely know I used Chandelier Glam…it’s my “go to” glam color when playing.

I was really liking the way this was turning out, and when I turned it over, I couldn’t decide if I liked the backside better! 

Either way, I just couldn’t cover up the back by attaching it to a piece of chipboard, so instead, I attached it to a piece of acrylic, using my Chandelier Glam as the glue.  If you’d like to see a “how-to” on this, I recreated the process for my monthly educator post at Tattered Angels here.  This time I noted the colors used and took pictures too.  One thing I learned from trying this a second time, is that I used a lot more glimmer mist the first time around.  This is probably because if I don’t care for the color combo I picked up or if it is too dark, instead of stopping and starting again, I just keep adding more color or adding lighter colors until I do like it…so the paper was definitely more wet!  I like the impression I got the first time as it is deeper.  I’ll definitely be playing with this technique again – definitely lots of fun!

Tattered Angels Warehouse Sale has been extended!!!

The Warehouse sale was such a HUGE hit, Wendy decided to extend it for a few more days!!
Dec 20th is just around the corner...better hurry and get your kit now! It would make a great holiday gift for yourself or even for a friend.

Don't miss out on these over stuffed boxes being offered ...

Go to our website for more details ...

Use code VWS1111 for free domestic shipping
or use code VWS1111int for a discount on International shipping

I just wanted to take a moment and address some of the comments we've received in regard to the boxes. The description of the sale, is literal.... "Wendy is cleaning house". This was truly a Warehouse/Garage Sale just as it is described. I want valued customers like yourself to be happy with the volume of product you receive in the box. The box contains lots of Vintage Tattered Angel Products, along with other manufacturers products collected from years gone by that we still felt had value to a consumer.

There is an image on our web site to show you an idea of what you would receive and also give you a general feel for what is included in your kit. Some of the products are not "New" packaged product, nor are we saying that they are.

As shown in the image on our website and compared to what you actually receive, these boxes have a amazing value. We included extra products that were not even listed in kit details just because we wanted to give you more bang for your buck. For example two Glimmer Screens are shown in the picture and we send 15+ screens in the largest kit giving it an extra added value of $30.00.

I have addressed the quality of packaging with my staff and have resolved any concerns about future shipments with possible damage to contents. We will certainly replace any item that was damaged, please just submit an image of damaged item so we can view damage and identify the product. We will try to replace with the same item but if its not in stock we will substitute with a similar item.

As for the paper we shipped with the kits, we added these packs as an added value, Please remember this is a warehouse sale and we are a manufacturer and not a retail store, so we sell in bulk. We have an ABUNDANCE of paper in our warehouse that we felt still had a value to a consumer instead of recycling the paper we would just send them in the kits as "give a ways" . If we were going to include them as a selling factor for the kits we would have taken the time to sort 1 sheet per paper and we would have listed the paper as various styles.

Again please accept our apology and know this is our 1st sale and we are learning many things from having this sale.

The "Values" below are based on what the total retail price of the items would be if you had purchased it all separately.

Small Kit Original Retail "Value" $100... your "Garage Sale" price $25
Medium Kit Original Retail "Value" $170... your "Garage Sale" price $50
Large Kit Original Retail "Value" $230... your "Garage Sale" price $75
