Metal can be plain or it can be OUTSTANDING !! :) Oh and a Little Thank You

This month over at Tattered Angels the uber talented designers are working with metal and Tattered Angels paints. There are so many different possibilities combing these two mediums.

With Valentine's Day around the corner I decided to create this little banner. The banner is made out of embossed tin. Using Tim Holtz's brick wall embossing template. I then sprayed them with Polka Dot Pink Chalkboard Spray. Heat set it with my heat gun and then gently rubbed some of the mist off for a distressed look. The heart and coil flower were also made with tin as well. The scallop on the edges of the tags are Foam Bumpers cut in half and the sticky side was covered with black glitter. The foam Round Bumpers are made by Canvas Corp. One of my new Favorites!! The black and white pp is also by Canvas Corp.

Colors used Polka Dot Pink, Strawberry Short cake and Chandelier Glimmer Glam (MY FAVE)



I've had this little black leather journal, sketch book, ramblings lol And it looked plain so I took a Fancy Pants metal tag and Tim Holtz metal frame and altered them with Chalkboard sprays. I love the the sprays marbled on the metal. Colors used Peacock and Decadence, and a small splash of Water Fall Glimmer Glaze.


For my last project I had these earring bases that were boring beyond belief so I spruced them up with some Glimmer Glaze and Prima ELine jewels.


The colors Used: Orange Crush and Flirty Glimmer Glaze. I love how the glaze altered the little hearts :) I think miss Karlie with look super cute on Valentines with these on.


P.S. I would like to thank the amazing supportive women I got to know a lot more at CHA this year. It is so nice and very encouraging to meet artists who are not afraid to support, help and inspire others. Being true to themselves not putting on a false self to impress others, Not stepping on others toes to make it to the top. Being creative in their own right, not depending on others for ideas. Hugs to you girls. You unbelievably talented souls.

Hugs
Jamie
