Painting with Glimmer MIst

It's been a busy week. Lots going on.. so my blog posts seem to be happening later and later. Deadlines to finish up and Friday is coming fast! I need to kick it into gear. At least the sun was shining here to day...even if it was still freeeeezing. Sunshine helps! It's been a long winter!
Have you ever painted with Glimmer Mist? It's a beautiful effect! These are the new Tags from Tattered Angels. They start out just black and white.. which is cool enough..but oh.. the possibilities!
It takes such a small amount of Glimmer Mist when your painting areas like this.. I just shake and then spray a little directly into my bottle lid. I use a fine detail brush.. and just remember to give the glimmer mist a it's swish or stir with my brush each time I dip in .. to keep the goodie all mixed up with the color.

It's fun for sure. Aren't all the new pieces gorgeous? The "with love" and the rose, are new TA pieces I added to the tag.
Between Tattered Angels and Heidi's new treasures... ahhhh
Check out that designer Crete paper. Woo hoo!

I added some vintage buttons, trim and that little green pretty.. just because .. I COULD. lol
You can see my other Tattered Angels projects along with the rest of the DT here on the
Tattered Angels blog.

Today we all went to see Jarad and Kates new place today. Everyone is so excited for them.

They already have all kinds of plans for their new place.

Everyone got the tour. That's Kates mom and her little niece in the doorway.
I know they kids are anxious to find out the date they can move in . Hopefully all the paperwork will go through quickly for them.

Oh yeah.... meet Stanley
And Steve. lol

Jarad and Kate just adopted them from the shelter. Oh.. our family just keeps growing. lol

Before a end.. I wanted to remind you to be sure to enter for the giveaway
in THIS POST. We'll be drawing for a winner on Friday.

Happy Day Everyone!!!!

good afternoon dudes. I'm actually into shoes and I had been looking for that particular brand. The prices due to the fact that the sneakers were approximately 340 dollars on every site. But completely I bring about this area selling them for half price. I absolutely like these [url=]prada sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely purchase them. what do you think?

hello fellas. I'm honestly into shoes and I had been looking as far as something that singular brand. The prices for the velcros were approximately 230 bucks on every site. But definitively I base this area selling them for the benefit of half price. I really love these [url=]prada sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely purchase these. what can you tell me about these?

Stanley and Steve are so cute! They made me LOL! I'm really happy about those kids getting such a great place to begin home ownership. I don't think I'd ever want to give it up-I'd just have to add-on.

Wow, what detail painting you did on the tag; just gorgeous. And I wish I had as steady a scissors hand as you!

We got some more ice down here last night but we have sun today too. Stay warm!
