Product Showcase: Tattered Angels Part II








{Reported by Paula Gilarde}

This assignment was waaay out of my box - I'm a clean and simple, non-technique scrapbooker but I have to admit that playing with mists was a lot of fun. The chalkboard mist was definitely my favorite - I loved the color and the effect.The Tattered Angels chipboard is very different from regular chipboard and it takes mist much better than regular chipboard (which I also tried). I even tried using the mists on regular chipboard which had been painted with gesso and it still didn't look as good as the Tattered Angels letters/frames/shapes.I used the masks on a sheet of Core'dinations cardstock with a few different mists for my "art" layout. I had more success with the less intricate shapes but this could be due to my lack of mist knowledge!The Tattered Angels cards and bingo cards really take mists very well - I used the mists to completely change the colors and used them on the friends layout. You can see the resist effect with the mists on the "party time" card - definitely a fun item to play with!
The only item that I didn't really have the best results with was the Glimmer Glam. I wasn't completely sure how to use it and some of my attempts ended up a disaster!

What I made:


Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock, Tattered Angel mists, calling cards and bingo card, Queen and Co letters, My Mind's Eye patterned papers, digital frame by Katie Pertiet (www.designerdigitals.com)


Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock, Tattered Angel mists, chipboard letters and masks, GCD Sudios flower, Little Yellow Bicycle chipboard, Fancy Pants patterned paper, digital frame by Katie Pertiet (www.designerdigitals.com)



Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock, Tattered Angel mists and calling cards.

Have you ever seen one of those infomercials where it ends with you thinking, "I really could use some of that stuff!"? Well let me just tell you, you could really use some of this stuff! It's fun, it's shiny and it's just a tiny bit messy. Don't worry, it's the fun kind of messy, and the kind that requires only about 30 seconds of clean up. (That's my favorite kind of messy!) Every scrapper should have one or two (or fifteen) bottles of Glimmer Mist on hand. You can add instant jazz to backgrounds, distress pictures, recolor flowers and so much more. And did I mention just how easy it is to use? Just lay down a couple of paper towels, add your mist-able object and spray to your heart's content. Layer and blend Glimmer Mist colors on your projects with just the push of the spray nozzle button. Yes crafters, this is the product you've been waiting for... fun, fast and all around fantastic! But wait, there's more! Stock up on Glimmer Mist and watch your kids or grandkids swarm the counter wanting a piece of the action. That's right, fun for the whole family! Glimmer Mist has it all folks!

Seriously though, I did have a lot of fun misting everything I could get my hands on including coffee filters, flowers, patterned paper, cardstock, chipboard, ribbon, photo paper... shall i go on? I especially loved making custom colored flowers out of coffee filters. I even enjoyed a little hybrid project, printing out a digital overlay and quote then coloring it up with a few colors of Glimmer mist. Stock yourself up with a pile of fun colors and have some fun misting your way through some scrappy fun.

What I made:


supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye (red), Little Yellow Bicycle (yellow); flocked transparency: Little Yellow Bicycle; Glimmer Mist, bird, bingo card and flowers: Tattered Angels; ribbon and toole: Lasting Memories; brad: Making Memories



supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill (black), Wassau (white); Glimmer Mist, chipboard, crown masks and flowers: Tattered Angels; brads: Making Memories; ribbon: Lasting Memories; digital brush and paper: Paislee Press, oscraps.com

supplies: Tag and Glimmer Mist: Tattered Angels; butterfly: Jenni Bowlin; alphabet: American Crafts; toole: Lasting Memories; other: coffee filter

Wow! These example projects are just gorgeous!

Thanks for the review. I have some glimmer mists and screens, but have had varying levels of success using them. Your review makes me want to get them back out and try it again.

I would love to have some of those chipboard pieces to see hwo well they really work, plus they make gorgeous designs.

Gomunk said...

I haven't tried Glimmer Mist just yet, and I was trying not to, but "i could really use that stuff". I'm having a hard time finding flowers for my three sons but I'm going to look into the coffee filter technique.

jan said...

I am just learning about all the things you can do with Climmer Mist! Would love to know more aout how you made your flowers, eg. the netting, the coffee filter...WOW

I have not even thought about trying Glimmer Mists until these reviews. But know I am rethinking my decision not to buy anymore new items. Will have to hit the LSS stores this weekend. Good thing we are busy at work and I am getting in some overtime. TeeHee.
I am thankful that my boss believes that we should not be open on Saturday or Sunday. Sounds like a good L.O. to me.
Everyone have a nice day

Gabi said...

I've never tried this stuff, but I've seen in on LO's everyone. I'm scared, but tempted to try it out. I might become addicted though after first use!

Rbarakat said...

Love it! Love your projects, love Tattered Angels!

After looking at all these gorgeous projects it is clear I need several more bottles of glimmer mist! LOL!

Rebecca Ednie said...

I love the projects shown. I have a couple bottles of GM but I'd love some more and I am dying to try the chip board.

Janette said...

I haven't tried Glimmer Mist, but your reviews have me itching to get misting all over my layouts.

Janette said...

Would love to try these.

Vicki said...

You all do the greatest reviews. Your projects are gorgeous. I love the look of glimmer mist, whether it's used a lot of a project or a little. Gotta give it a try.

Stephanie Zito said...

Wow!!! Amazing samples! I love how the Calling Cards were misted. I have had some for awhile and weren't sure how to use them! Love the effects using masks and that coffee filter flower is adorable!! Thanks for another wonderful review on such an awesome product!

Joli said...

I would love to win!!!

How about a review of all the mists together - Smooch (I think thats what its called), Glimmer Mist and Maya Mist. A chart that shows all the differences, if there is any?

klasickewpie said...

I have a few of the Glimmer Mists and use them for various effects. I like the splattered look and the mist effect both. I'm looking forward to trying the new releases as soon as they hit the LSS. Love getting the inside scoop from TSR!

Carla said...

Wow, your projects are all so beautiful!! I haven't mastered the glimmer mists yet, but have given them a try with a few masks. I love the look it gives a background page as well.

Jenny McGee said...

I have not tried it yet, but it does look like good and messy fun. Thanks for a chance to win.

petunia670 said...

My misting attempts are elementary at best, so I'm loving these layouts that are quickly getting filed into my "To be lifted file". I seem to have better success w/ Maya Mist than Glimmer Mist, but maybe I'm choosing the wrong colors. Thanks for the review.

Stephanie said...

Glimmer Mists are so addicting! I haven't tried any of their chipboard, though, and would love to get my hands on some. :)

Beautiful projects, ladies!

GiddyGardener said...

Love those colors, especially the aqua blue (not sure what TA calls it). The chips and tags look interesting also but have not seen them at my LSS yet.

Megan Ann said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Glimmer Mist, I must have about 30 different colors, but I loved the techniques you all used...I have some more ideas what to do with GM now! Thanks for the ideas!

Rebecca said...

I have become a big fan of Glimmer Mist. I'd really love to see more of the Tattered Angels chalkboard mist coming out.

Christine Schmidt said...

I do have a few bottles of the Glimmer mists--TOTALLY in love with them! I watched a clip of Heidi Swapp demoing the Glimmer Glam, Glimmer Glaze, & the Chalks and I can't wait to try these beauties!! They really looked AMAZING!!

hannie said...

Would love to try out masking technique more using the mist.
TQ!

Anke said...

Your great items make me want to try the Glimmer Mist.
I'll have to go to my LSS to see if she sells it.

Mary Lou said...

Love these examples. Haven't tried Glimmer Mist yet, but want to try.

Izzy said...

Love your samples! I can't live without glimmer mist.... I love tattered angels products... the screens, the glass, the chips and now coming the glaze and glam it's playtime for me!

Peggy said...

I guess this is one of those products I just wasn't sure if I could do right so I haven't bought any yet. I would love to win some so I could try it for myself. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win. God bless!
Peggy Allen

connie said...

Love the projects. I have not used glimmer mist yet but would love to try some.

billiejo said...

I'm with Noel on this. Everyone should own at least a few bottles of Tattered Angel Mist. I found it to be the perfect answer when trying to match the colors of a wedding for an album. I sprayed a sheet of that intricate, lace cut paper (the laser cut kind) and adhered it to the album cover. I loved that I could go from light to dark with the same spray, adding color accents throughout monochrome album.

Veronica said...

would LOVE to TRY it! Looks fun and not so "scary" after you gals using it! Thanks for the Review and the chance!

Anne Thompson said...

I just LOVE Tattered Angels products, especially the Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Screens. Thanks for the chance to win a truly awesome prize! One can never have too much of this stuff! Anne, yourmainestamper

Glimmer mist is one of my favorites - not just to spray but also to watercolor paint with. It works great with a brush.
