Hello Everyone! This is the first post of my Paint System Spray Tutorials from Tattered Angels. The featured spray pack today is "Witches Brew"!
The Paint System Sets contain four distinctive mediums that perfectly compliment each other. I have used a large Manila tag as the base for this project.
Witch's Brew consists of:
1. Glimmer Mist Chalkboard Spray- Grape Ape
(a chalk-matte finish with a fine glimmer)
2. Glimmer Mist Spray - Pumpkin Spice
(a watercolor mist with a touch of glimmer)
3. Glimmer Glam - Stiletto
( a brush-on paint with a fine glimmer, plus glitter)
4. Glimmer Glaze- Wicked
(a brush-on paint with a fine glimmery sparkle)
To start, I applied a layer of Glimmer Glaze - Wicked around the edges of the tag. The glaze is shiny/glossy when dry and acts as a resist for the other sprays. When dry, I then sprayed on some of the Chalkboard Spray and some of the Glimmer Mist, to add the bright pumpkin and grape colors to the tag. Let the colors blend together, so don't be afraid to add lots of spray. If needed, you can blot a little of the spray with a paper towel in places. Again, let the sprays dry before preceding to the stamping. I then stamped my Impression Obsession stamp "Skulls About Town" with tuxedo black Memento Ink twice on the tag. Using some of the NEW Wink of Stella Brush Sparkle Pens in Yellow, Lt. Green, Dark Pink, Orange and Brown, I colored in the skull staffs. These new paint pens by Kuretake are very sparkly and add lots of shimmer with no mess! I then took a fan brush, and added some of the Stiletto Glimmer Glam paint to the top and bottom of my tag in streaks that look like old moss hanging on the walls of a cave. To add dimension, I stamped two bats from my Martha Stewart Halloween Icon Stamp Set and colored them in with the Wink of Stella dk, pink and clear glimmer pens to add sparkle. I used foam squares to adhere them to the tag. I also added a Prima Doll stamped on a Prima Tag, dressed in her "Batty Costume"to the bottom of the tag. To complete the tag, I added a swatch of twinkly red tulle ribbon tied in a bow at the top!
I hope you enjoyed the process of decorating this tag. The combination of colors with the Paint System were so helpful when decorating the background for this tag. Periodically I have problems deciding which colors to use together, so with this system I can learn more about combining complimentary colors. I hope you will try some also, if you have regrets of colors you choose. If you have any questions about the products I have used, feel free to write me, and I will try to help in any way possible.
Thanks for joining me today.
