Layout: Balancing Act *Tattered Angels*

I did this post for the Tattered Angels Educator Blog.

If you know my work you know I love texture and layers on my projects. Something about haptics on a layout make me happy 🙂

*Balancing Act*


This layout is about how I try to find the balance between all those things that I  or other people are expecting from me. Have time, be positive, be grateful, stay in touch ….etc, etc. – and I try, I really do….

For this layout I used the Tattered Angels Color Kit that goes with the Pink Paislee Paper Collection Daily Junque. I sprayed the background with the included Glimmer Mist Aquamarine and Dark Denim and then used Ranger’s Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint on top. After it dried and crackled I added some of the Pewter Glimmer Glaze to a foam pad and rubbed it over the surface to achieve a metallic finish and release the crackles even more.


I also used the Pewter Glimmer Glaze and Organic Glimmer Glam and blended it together on the Pink Paislee metal embellishment. I also painted the wooden embellishment with Glimmer- I love the effect on wood.

Have fun to play with the different Tattered Angels Media – the possibilities are endless.
