I {heart} Glimmer Mist!

Well, I want to start this post off by talking a little about glimmer mist! This gorgeous product gives the most beautiful shimmery look when applied to paper. But, Tattered Angels (the company that sells Glimmer Mist) has just made their whole product better by releasing Glimmer Glaze, a paint like substance that has the same effect as Glimmer Mist! Check out their education blog for more details.

In honor of Glimmer Mist I made a lo tonight featuring it! I was highly inspired by the "Times Square" page of Sue's mini-album on the Tattered Angels blog (look for the post titled "Fun with the Garden Journal Album), and pulled out some similar supplies to create my lo.

My lo features photos from this summer from my Key West trip (surprised? That seems to be all I scrap these days!). To make my lo, I glimmer misted watercolor paper with Mimosa, Watermelon, and Cherry Limeade Glimmer Mists, using a swirly and compass screen. I then stamped the compass on top of the screen (which kind of covered up the screen). For the little card (which is a Tattered Angels Bingo Board) I used Patina, Riptide, and Mimosa Glimmer Mist. I then stamped some Unity Stamps for the words. For the title "Life" I used the Framed Fonts alphabet which I sprayed with Cherry Limeade glimmer mist. I also glimmer misted the flower, with Riptide.
Whew! I think thats all, lol. Here are some close-ups:
Thanks for stopping by!
