Monday March Mix Up















Happy Monday everyone. Well, it's week three of the Tattered Angels, Crafty Secrets March Mix up, where the design teams from both companies create projects using products from both companies to create lovely little works of art. It's my turn today along with Liz Hicks-TA
Michelle Jackson-TA
Marisa Grosson-CS
Anna Wight-CS
Let me just say, I enjoyed working with both of these products so much, it was hard to choose which booklet from Crafty Secrets to start with, so since it is spring I started with the Birds and Botanicals Image and Journal notes. I will be posting more projects combining Tattered Angels with Crafty Secrets in the next couple of weeks because once I started I couldn't stop. The possibilities are endless. I love,love,love the way the glimmer mist took to the unfinished wood on the birdhouse, and on the corrugated cardboard on the wallhanging. I used Copper, Patina, Olive Vine, Coffee Shop, and Creme de Chocolate on the bird house, and I used Patina, Olive Vine, Coffee Shop, Tuscan Sun, and Brick on the wallhanging. I also used Glimmer Glass Nature on the wallhanging, and Creme de Chocolate Glimmer Chips on the bird house. This was so much fun, and now I have a couple new decorations for my living room! Don't forget to check out the Tattered Angels Blog
and the Crafty Secrets Blog

I love, love, love what you did! Especially the little bird house...out of all the Glimmer Mist I have, I don't have one of those colors! I guess if I want a nice bird house like yours, I'd better go shopping! Isn't Crafty Secrets and Glimmer Mist a match made in heaven? The images you chose are so sweet and a great job on challenge!

Just beautiful Cheryl! Glimmer Mist on wood is awesome. Makes me to also want to break out the corrugated cardboard. Very creative!

WOW-Your projects are AMAZING!!! I love all of the colors of Glimmer Mist you used. I love painting but it's also great to have such a wonderful product that you can use on raw wood. Fabulous Job!!

I just can't stop looking at that birdhouse. What a lovely creation. You really did a great job mixing the 2 products with your projects. The wall hanging goes so well together witht the birdhouse. Thanks for sharing you work of art.

I am not surprised that we both used the same images, I was thinking of doing a windchime with my glass and couldn't find them! I am so glad that you used them, again....you amaze me my friend!
