Glimmer Mist Giveaway!

Today is the beginning of the Glimmer Mist giveaway I've been teasing about. Thanks to Wendy Stenger the creator of Glimmer Mist and owner of Tattered Angels.... I get the chance to give away. 6 BOTTLES of GLIMMER MIST to the person who's name is draw, next Friday October 19th! I'll draw the name that morning. All you have to do is leave comment...and then be sure to check back on Friday to see who won.

The colors Wendy is giving away are the fall line up!

Juniper
Aspen Yellow
Autumn Leaves
Red Maple
Merlow
Harvest Orange




I thought this would be a good time to share with you a project I just finished , using primarily Glimmer Mist for the color. The background paper was originally white. All of the papers I used , even the book print and the photo have been colored with Glimmer Mist. (the photo was copied onto cardstock then spritzed)

The colors I used are all from the fall line up.

The people in this photo, are my Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Stoltenberg.

I left all the photos large, so that you can click on them to be able to see them better it you want.


I did lots, of tearing , distressing and layering. I have to tell you... these are the kinds of projects I just LOVE... and could have gotten lost in the details of this... and worked on it ALL day. I totally enjoyed working on this project...and just doing whatever I wanted. Sometimes, I think you just have to do that... just let yourself go, and create whatever you want. If I'm in a slump, letting go and just doing a project like this ... usually gets me going again.

I used a Memory glass and a Memory glass holder for my message and just attached it to the project.



I hadn't used texture past for so long... I saw in sitting in my supply closet and started wondering what the "Crackle" stencil Ease would look like with Glimmer Mist spritzed over it after it was dry and had cracked. So I gave it a whirl. lol I really liked the effect.




Like I've said before , I love all kinds of different art , and enjoy working different styles, but my heart is with Vintage.... there's just something about it that just feels right when I'm doing it.

The cool thing about Glimmer Mist , is that it works with so many different styles. Hopefully this week, I'll be able to show you a few.
************************************************************************
Before I close , Happy Birthday to my Boy today! He turned 25. Can it be so?
I love you son... I'm so proud of you!

Rubber Soul in Redmond, WA
Ben Franklin Crafts in Redmond, WA
Lasting Memories in Lynnwood, WA and
Paper Zone in Shoreline, WA - no one carried it!! Hopefully Rubber Sould will start carrying it though! She said she would make a note - and I plan to go back and ask about it again!
