Inspiration is Everywhere

It feels like spring around here.  The snow has melted and the sun shines longer each day. Spring is a time for renewal.  I have been clearing off my plate, giving up some obligations, and finding my artist soul again.  It’s amazing the enjoyment, the ideas and the inspiration that comes from feeling free again.

I always get the freedom to create my hearts desire when I create art for Tattered Angels.  I absolutely love that!

Here are three projects I created for Tattered Angels.

First up is a layout I created using the new Plain Jane Simply Sheer in Teal and Shade.  I am sooooo loving these new colors.  I altered a piece of premium craft foil with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities as well.

I also used French Vanilla Chalkboard Mist, Chandelier Glimmer Glam and a new Tattered Angels Stencil.  Island Spring was used for the coffee ring marks.  I just can’t get enough of these products!

I love these mini tart tins by Jenny Bowlin.  I cut out pieces of Canvas Corp paper, and misted them with Vanilla Breeze Glimmer Mist and Gravel Baseboard Plain Jane.  I also misted Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms die cuts with Plain Jane Simply Sheer Teal.  I floated them in Ice Resin and applied Art Glitter to the edges.  I really loved how they turned out.  Such a fun look.

I have always wanted to create a photo collaged bottle.  I have seen several different kinds.  I loved making this so much, I think I’ll make several more!  This one is a recycled juice bottle!

I poured Island Spring Glimmer Glaze into the bottle, rolled it around, used my heat gun to dry it.  Then I poured Chandelier Glimmer Glam in and repeated the process until it dried.  I used some burlap canvas from Canvas Corp and pushed it into the bottle, then poured more Glimmer Glam and Glimmer Glaze onto the burlap.

I filled it with seashells, tulle and a photo.  I altered the outside of the bottle using Plain Jane Simply Sheer Teal on the ribbon and Chandelier Glimmer Glam on the bottle top.  I want to create an entire row of these!

I hope I have inspired you today.  Thanks for coming by the Tattered Angels blog today!

    I love them all. You are so talented. I would love to see the bottle in person. I’m sure the photo does not do it justice. Miss you, friend.
