Maiden of the Sea

Today's tag background is created using the Lagoon Color Paint System from Tattered Angels. It coordinates with many of the Prima Marketing products. I love the colors included in this set, especially since my go-to colors have been turquoise and aquas lately.  The products included in this Paint System Kit are: 

 1.  Glimmer Mist:  Apricot Nectar- adds a chalk-matte finish with a fine glimmer;  2.  Glimmer Mist:  Bahama Blue- a watercolor mist with a touch of glimmer;  3.  Glimmer Glam:  Golden Goddess- a paint with a fine glimmer, plus glitter; and 4.  Glimmer Glaze:  Pewter- a paint with a fine glimmery sparkle.                                                I used this Paint System to spray one of the large Prima printed tags, and then left it to air dry.  When the tag was dry, I cut out three of the elements from the Paper Wings Productions August Nesting Components Kit and layered them with some of the lace included in the August Kit. I gathered the lace gently and adhered it to the back of the photo, and then adhered it to the top of the flourish print, overlapping it slightly.  After adhering it to the tag, I used foam tape to adhere the clock face to the top right corner of the tag.  I found some beaded trim in my stash that had small metal coins attached, and thought that it would coordinate with the water colors of the background.  I used red line double stick adhesive to attach it to the bottom of the tag, and then used more embellishments from the August Nesting Components Kit to complete my tag.  The pearls and ribbon just added a bit of bling to the composition.
Since I covered most of the tag with embellishment, I decided to take a picture of the tag after I sprayed the layers of color from the Lagoon Paint System package. You can see from the picture how wonderfully the colors blend and compliment each other, so that if you are new to spray coloring or have trouble coordinating your colors, like I do, these pre-packaged Paint Systems are just what you need to help you get started.  After a while, you will learn which colors go well together, so you can make your own color combinations to use on your art projects.
                       I hope you have enjoyed this project with me, and that you will join me next time for two projects using the Daily Junque and Soiree Paint Systems from Tattered Angels. Until then, have a great weekend.
