Say HELLO to Tattered Angels Plain Jane

I have so much to share and can’t wait to show you my take on the new Tattered Angels PLAIN JANE….I think the possibilities are endless. It was an extremely busy time leading up to the Winter 2012 CHA held in Anaheim, CA. So much to do in December…projects had to be completed so the catalog could be printed. Hard to believe that 2 of my projects are in the catalog. And then in Jan. several more to be completed & transported out to CHA. Once there you could see the sigh of relief from all of the designers & manufacturers…it was showtime! And what a show, over 6-1/2 miles of the most incredible inspiration in mew products and materials. Let me share with you 4 of my projects that went to Tattered Angels.

The first project was based on several new Glimmer Glam color combos…and they are gorgeous! I wanted the sparkle & twinkle to stand out so my canvas stars, covered with Glimmer Glam, sits upon a matte white canvas background. I used Grandma’s House, Twinkle Toes, Cookies N’ Cream and Calm Before the Storm to paint the stars. Unfortunately you can’t get a good idea how these stars twinkle…I guess you will have to try them for yourself!

The 2nd project was based on a Glimmer Mist color way called Icicle Blue. A small 6″ x 12″ canvas received several coats of all the colors that I allowed the colors to pool and drip along with Prima Flowers misted to match. The Glimmer Mists used from left to right are Mountain Mist, Pop Rocks, Blitzen, Icicle Blue, Night B4 Christmas and Afraid of the Dark. Tattered Angels letters colored with several of the blues finish off this piece.

As you may have heard Tattered Angels is now under the umbrella of Canvas Corp. and I was thrilled to be able to work with several of their products. In my signature round canvas I created an art journal background with several of the new Tattered Angels Plain Jane products. I also used several different materials to show how Plain Jane would react with them…manilla tags, chipboard, tape, canvas & twine…finished off with Canvas Corp twine. I used Plain Jane SIMPLY SHEER for the background in Light Blue, Faded Yellow, Warm Green & Dark Blue and Plain Jane BASEBOARD in Red Rocks used with punchinella to add texture. The Canvas Corp. canvas banner pieces and twine were also misted with these colors. The Chipboard was misted with Ivory BASEBOARD. To finish off the piece carious stencils from The Crafters Workshop were used with Plain Jane STAINED GLASS in Green & Purple. At first I wanted some GLIMMER & GLAM but as the piece evolved I saw the possibilities with this new product line. It seems that many customers have requested Tattered Angels paint products…”hold the sparkle”!

My last project was created with one of the new clam pack sets based on international travels…called Germany. I had this fabulous 12″x12″photo album from Walnut Hollow, a preferred partner, and used many different techniques to show how well these clam pack color choices work together. If you have been following this blog then you already know that wood takes all these products so well. The Glimmer Mist Colors chosen to represent GERMANY are Wheat Beer, Partridge in a Pear Tree, Nougat & Mallard.

I hope you take a look at all the new Tattered Angels products and colored…with the addition of the Plain Jane paint line you will have so many possibilities available to you. I know you will see more projects over the next year showing you all the different ways to incorporate Tattered Angels into every project.

Thanks for stopping by…I would love to hear what you think!

    I just bought 4 bottles of Glimmer Glam at a garage sale! But I don’t know how to use it. Do you paint it on directly from the bottle or spray it? Can it be diluted with water? Can you use it on cardstock or just on canvas? Your samples are gorgeous! Thanks.
