Tattered angels Mixed Media Origins papers are so versalite that easily match with any project and style. They work as ready to paint full 12×12 sheets and create amazing paintings or to cut parts of them and incorporate them or use them as embellisments in other projects. The cloth like paper is strong enough to be altered with paints, mists, pastes and still hold without being teared apart. The Tattered angels Mixed Media Origins papers come in double printed 12×12 sheets in various desings.
Our Crew member, Kyriakos Pachadiroglou, cut the butterflies from the Wings paper and colored them with the Tattered Angels mists in vivid colors, poping up from the background and ready to fly away.

Believe in perfect love - Butterflies layout“Using the butterflies from the Tattered Angels Mixed Media Origins papers, I based this layout on the contrast of the colorful butterflies and the white background. Scrap paper cuttings and heavy texture paste are mixed with black mist to give texure on the background and cover the wire themed paper. Craft wire in large circles and words on metallic plates include words of the theme.” – says Kyriakos.
