You’re invited to a SOIREE

June is Happy Birthday month in my house…so many to celebrate! You are all invited to the Birthday SOIREE.

Our assignment this month was to showcase the new Pink Paislee and Tattered Angels Color Connections Paint system. If you haven’t heard about it the premise is based on a collaboration between Tattered Angels and Pink Paislee. Pink Paislee created the paper and Tattered Angels created the matching paint products to be sold in a set. Below is the system for SOIREE…Marigold  & Party Pink Glimmer Mists, Chandelier Glimmer Glam & Waterfall Glimmer Glaze.

Using the brand new Tattered Angels Color Connection system and Pink Paislee’s Soiree collection I created this cake stand.

I started with a  cake stand kit from Martha Stewart {white chipboard with white paper lace trim} perfect for adding some paper & paint. Using the PP Soiree collection and the Color Connection I covered each tray with paper and applied a coat of CHANDELIER Glimmer Glam {I need a gallon of this!}. I misted the white lace trim with  MARIGOLD Glimmer Mist, which is the EXACT color of the yellow in the paper! I then misted white tulle with the PARTY PINK Glimmer Mist. I completed the stand with a paper banner using the Soiree paper. Here it is ready to serve birthday cupcakes.

Also look how exact this Party Pink is to the pink in the Soiree paper…I’m amazed at the exact color you get. Remember this started out as white tulle…look at it now.

My 2nd project I would like to share with you is a birthday album created for a dear friend. I again used the Pink Paislee SOIREE paper collection and matching Tattered Angels Color Connection clam pack along with this adorable Cupcake Album by Out There Chippy.  On this project I was able to introduce the 4th component to the Color Connections paint system…WATERFALL Glimmer Glaze.

Tattered Angels Color Connections: Marigold & Party Pink Glimmer Mist, Chandelier Glimmer Glam.

Although it’s hard to see CHANDELIER Glimmer Glam has been applied to all surfaces.

WATERFALL Glimmer Glaze has been applied to the bird, lettering and outer edges of the post card while MARIGOLD & PARTY PINK Glimmer Mist has been applied to the crown and frame…again I’m so amazed at the color match!

More Pink Paislee SOIREE and CHANDELIER Glimmer Glam!

My final project I shifted gears and used the Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology paper collection along with the matching Color Connections Paint System comprised of TURQUOISE BLUE, CHERUB PINK & SILVER SUGAR Glimmer Mist. Using an unpainted mannequin form I dressed her up with a coat of paint, satin trim, ribbons, Prima flower and a matching Pink Paislee rhinestone…isn’t she sweet?I painted the wood mannequin with TURQUOISE BLUE, misted the Parisian Anthology paper used as her top with CHERUB PINK & SILVER SUGAR. The skirt was a combination of all 3 colors, also the ribbons. A white Prima flower with matching rhinestone and or course, what girl would be without a strand of pearls.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects. I can’t say enough about the Color Connections Paint system it has taken the stress out of  which Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist color is going to work the best…allowing more time to be create. The colors match perfectly, not an easy feat and it also gives you 4 Tattered Angels Paint Mediums to work with…Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Glam & Glimmer Glaze.

Thanks for stopping by. Make sure to come back and see what Nicole, Peg, Sherry & Zoe have up their sleeves.
