It’s Wednesday again, which means it’s Wing-projects with Tattered Angels time!
Today, we have Carly Phillips sharing with us her chalkboard project which she decorated with wooden die-cut wings and, of course, layers of Tattered Angels paints.
‘I have created a home décor project. The background of the frame is a chalkboard. It has many purposes from recipes, daily bible verses or chore list and phone numbers for kids… I have used different mediums, such as metal, wood wings and a whole lot of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and High Impact paint for a patina-metallic look on the heart.’ – says Carly.
Tattered Angels High Impact paint: Light Blue, White, Rose Gold
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist: Turquoise, Sapphire, Iridescent Gold
Tattered Angels Imperial Simply Sheer: Vintage Blue
Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist: Blue Ribbon

Carly shares with us her creative process:
Paint wood cross die-cut with a mix of Hi Impact light blue paint and turquoise blue Glimmer Mist. To make it a pretty even coat, cover it several times and let dry completely.
Start covering the black frame with the same colors but add in some more white to soften it up. Repeat it 3 times allowing to dry before adding another layer.
Once the frame is completely dry, delicately sand off the edges exposing the black underneath and giving it a distressed look.
I used a combination of patina for metal and mixed it with Glimmer Mist and Hi Impact blue, this way I made my own color. It is beautiful and gives the frame a metalic look, which you see up close.
I used the same colours to randomly sprinkle on the metal heart embellishment. I then sprayed the entire project with Iridescent Gold glimmer mist – the frame, the cross and the metal heart.
I found a die-cut word ‘faith’ and painted it royal blue. I used hot glue to attach the elements and mounted my theme word on top of the whole project.
We are loving the creativity!!! What a great way to show off the Tattered Angels paints and create a functional chalk board at the same time!
