Tattered Angels Part III, a video and another give-away!!








{Reported by Ashley Harris}

I have to say that if I were to choose a company whose products blew me away at CHA it was Tattered Angels. While there, I met Liz Hicks and she was kind enough to take me around their booth. She also demonstrated her mad skillz with Glimmer Mist. I was so impressed that I took their 201 class while at CHA and I loved it! So now comes the fun part!

What I liked:
I love the mists, really I do. There is a learning curve to it, but once you get it, you will never stop! It is so versatile. You can do almost anything with this stuff. I am in love, sigh... The chips are great as well.

What I didn't like:
I would like to see more clean and graphic images to work with, but then I think that might go against their name of Tattered... The learning curve of the mists. Trying not to get the splotches on your page takes practice, but nothing you can't over come. Here let me show you how!




What I made:

This tag I misted with Chalkboard Mist in Peacock. I also misted the chip frame at the same time to get the masked look. I then painted over the frame with Glimmer Glam in Mermaid a couple of times to get the color I wanted.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Tattered Angels products: chipboard frame, Mist Chalkboard Mist in Peacock, Glimmer Mist in Key Lime, Cranberry Zing, Tutti Fruiti; Glimmer Glam in Mermaid, stamps travel line; Ink: StazOn



For this chip tile I misted it with Patina Glimmer Mist and then went over it with a light layer of Mermaid Glam. Stamped the explore and adhered the car glass(acrylic) to it. It was just a fun thing to make and enjoy.

Supplies: Tattered Angels: Chip Tile, glass, stamp in travel line, Glimmer Mist in Patina, Glimmer Glam in Mermaid; Chalk Ink: Clearsnap


This door hanger I made with a chip tile as well. I misted it with Glimmer mists Choc. Covered Cherries and Cranberry Zing along with the Chalkboard mist Peacock. I then inked it with StazOn. I went over the Dragon Flies with Glimmer Glam in Luscious Lavender to make the wings pop. I love the bigger pieces of glitter that come in the Glam. So FAB!

Supplies: Tattered Angels: Chip tile, Chip frame, Glimmer Mist in Choc. Cov Cherries, Cranberrry Zing and Chalkboar Mist in Peacock, Glimmer Glam in Luscious Lavender; Ink: StazOn; Rhinestones: Zva Creative


This tote was fun. I just punched out 2" circles with a punch and placed them on the tote with glue dots and spritzed over them. I then Stamped over a few circles with one of the stamps from the Time Traveler set. Punched a hole with my Crop A Dile for the brad on the flower to go through.

Supplies: Tote: Craft Store; Tattered Angels: Glimmer Mist Chalkboard in Peacock, Circle stamp from travel line; Ink: StazOn; Flowers misc; Brad: American Crafts; Rhinestone: Kaiser Craft

So I have misted everything in sight it seems! I am pretty much a fan of Tattered Angels. Once I learned how to properly use the mists, I was golden!

Products: Tattered Angels chips, glass, mists, glam, etc.
Manufacturer: Tattered Angels
MSRP: $3.99- $55.00 (from antique keys to XL Misting Mat)

Great review! I am spraying everything in sight to see what effect it has, so I am still experimenting. Trying to learn how the colors mix with each other. Fun, fun , fun!!

Vanessa said...

I enjoyed reading the review & seeing your projects..I have a couple of mists but definately need to try more!

Anke said...

Great reviews. You are enabling me to try the mist. It seems to be fun to use. I would love to try them.

rebecca_geile said...

I love their mists. I've never seen or used glimmer glam, however.

KittyMama said...

Thank you so much for your tutorial!! I've been a mist user, but I had no idea that the splotches were because I was shaking my bottle. That swirl tip is priceless!

Joy Pearcy said...

This mist looks so fun to use! Great video!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

kmassman said...

I'm in love! Would love to win! Please pick me :-) !!

PamS said...

Love your review...When I first got some of the mists, nothing was spared. However, my husband was a little irritated when I sprayed the dog...I just wanted to see what the fur would like with some glimmer!

Izzy said...

I'm truly addicted to anything Tattered Angels and if it can be glimmered.... I'm spraying my little heart out!

just me and z said...

I love "clean" lines too, but I would love to try some Tattered Angels!!

JustYolie said...

Love your reviews and I love TA! Thanks for the chance to win!

NANCY DARE said...

I love all the Tattered Angels products~!

Stacey said...

I am a long time Tattered Angels fan! I have trouble not misting every project I do lol

Joli said...

Great video Ashley!!! It was worth staying up until 2am for!

I agree that I would like to see some crisp images, maybe they will come along with a non-tattered sister company....

Megan Ann said...

AWESOME! I love all the things you misted! I LOVE glimmer mist! I am SOOOO addicted! I must have about 30 colors, but I'm not a pro yet, so i could use some other TA products! Thanks for the chance to win : )

susan m said...

I love the look of the glimmer mists, I just need more of them to use. Being picked for this giveaway would encourage me to use them!!! :)

Erika M. said...

There's definitely a learning curve for using the mists!

Scrapamum said...

You know, I absolutely adore glimmer mists but I haven't tried the chalkboard mists. I think I need to get some to try. Great reviews as always!!!!

RbeforeE said...

Wow! This glimmer mist looks awesome! I am trying to develop my less symmetrical skills and it looks like Tattered Angels is the perfect place to start. Gorgeous but not so crisp and tidy. I need more of that. I love the textures and am dying to see the mists IRL. The pics are beautiful, but when I see the word 'glimmer' I know a picture is not going to be worth those thousand words.

BTW, double points if you use scrap papers to catch your overspray to make glam scraps.

AngMomof3 said...

I've been so interested in trying glimmer mist, but was a bit intimidated. With your tips here and examples of how to use it, I'm ready to go get some (or, win some)!

Shannon Marie said...

i love glimmer mist and tattered angels but unfortunately no one around me sells it! So i have limited colors of mist! :( I wish my local scrapbook stores would get on the ball and get some of these products in stock!!!

Curlywiggles said...

Fab tip about swirling rather then shaking the bottle, I'm going to give that a go. I have a few of the mists & love them but now I want to try the Chalkboard mist! Great review!

ArlaMo said...

I love Glimmer Mists! Thanks for the review!

RAP said...

I only have gold so far but the effect is awesome. I love to win more!

Gwen said...

I love Glimmer Mist! I'm really looking forward to trying the Chalkboard Mist and the Glimmer Glam.

JeanneK said...

I love the Glimmer Mists and all the different looks you can get! Sometimes I will use them up close for a splotched look. Great review

arbywytz said...

I am totally in love with Glimmer Mists; in fact I love almost all the Tattered Angels products. They make my projects look 10x better than they would without them!

Daniela said...

I like Glimmer Mist. I used it just last night to mist some of my ribbon! Thanks for the tutorial.

Melissa Kaye said...

Great video! I really love the bag you made. IF it gets wet does it fade?

I LOVE glimmer mist too, but agree that I would love more graphic images.

Loved the week of Glimmer Mist!

Erica Hettwer said...

I love Mists! I'm also super jealous that you got to meet Liz in person. She's such a sweetie and I hope someday I get to meet her! :)

I am totally in love with misting. It is so versatile and can change the way a project looks or alter older paper for a fresh look.

Cynthia B. said...

Thanks for the video! I'd love the chance to try these mists out!

Merrilee said...

I love all the colours available in the Glimmer mist. It makes it so easy to custom match embellishments.

stamp500 said...

Excellent demo. I have to agree that there is a big of a learning curve with this product line.

Rbarakat said...

You are a lucky girl getting to play with all these really cool goodies! I got to play a ittle at CHA ad am anxiously waiting for glam and chalk paint too!

Rebecca said...

love how you misted the canvas bag--so cool!

corinna said...

I loved learning about the mists and products by Tattered Angel. I was frustrated with the spotchy drops on my projects but LOVE that you've solved that dilemma for me....now off to mist....hee hee!

Quilter422 said...

i've been afraid of mists b/c every time i've tried it i get those nasty splotches. but you've given me hope...

terizz said...

Would love to try Gimmer Mist! I haven't seen it in person yet. Can't wait to play.

Jen said...

Love the Glimmer Mists! Love how you went wild and misted everything! Thanks for the chance to win some!

Tracey Locher said...

Thank you for the tips! I will start swirling and I have to get some of the glam!

Peggy said...

Thanks for the informational video on the glimmer mist items. It was very informative. Maybe I am ready to try it myself. God bless!
Peggy Allen

Stephanie Zito said...

Wow! Gorgeous creations! I have about 20 bottles of Glimmer Mist but have too not used them very much because of the "splotches". Thank you so much for the video tutorial! I'm going to try them again using the swirling technique and spraying away and towards your project! And, I definitely need some Chalk Mist and Glimmer Glam now!

GinniG said...

I absolutely LOVE Glimmer Mists and have several colors. I hadn't heard of the other two products you featured before but will definitely be looking for them next time I purchase scrappy supplies! Thanks SOOOOOOO much for the swirly technique! I will love GMs even MORE now! Off to play!!!

Shelley said...

Thank yo for letting us all know about swirling the mist instead of shaking it. Now my projects will look better without the splotches!

Just call me b said...

Oh! I love it! Love the swirl tip!!!

marla said...

I LOVE to use Glimer mist and I cant wait to use Glimmer glam and Glimmer glaze.

Rebecca Ednie said...

I'd love to try some more mist. I only have brown right now.

Kathy R. said...

I just bought my first glimmer mists and I am so happy that I watched the video!!! Now I can't wait to try them!!!!!

Christine Schmidt said...

Ashley thank you so very much for the very helpful hints on how to use the Glimmer mists. I too did not like the blotchy effect I got the first time I used it, got frustrated, and just put it away! I am sooo excited & can't wait for the glam, glaze, & chalks! I watched Heidi Swapps' demo and I was blown away by these fabulous new products! (She's such a natural & makes everything look sooo gorgeous & simple!)

Emily said...

I have really been wanting to get my hands on these mists. I have some of the Smooch sprays by Clearsnap and I wasn't too happy with them. I might try some of these tips with them, but I don't think I'll get quite the same results because it looks to me (and I could be wrong) but it looks like the Tattered Angels mists have a longer spray in each spray than the Clearsnap ones, they seem to be more of a short splotchy spray. But I will definitely try swirling instead of shaking to see if that helps with them, too. And best yet would be to get my hands on some of those mists, they look like a ton of fun. I wish my LSS would pick them up instead!

wings love'n crafts said...

OHHH myyy will love to start playing with tattered angels mist!!! they are so versatile!!!! thanks for sharing!!! :o)

Melinda AKA medialady said...

Thanks so much for all your reviews. It helps me decide if I want to try the product plus gives me ideas of how to use the products.

dazey said...

Love that tote bag! I still need to get comfortable with misting ... hard to do when I only use it at crops because I don't have my own.

billiejo said...

I love my mists, but can't wait to try the glimmer glam. Wow, what a great all around product line! Just a note, we are always told to store products that need mixing on their side so the metallic, glimmer, etc. isn't as clumped together. I do this with my mists and have never had a problem. And don't forget to stir, swirl, and shake everything that can clump together, at least once a month.

Elaine said...

I am so in love with Glimmer mist! I started out slow, but once you get a few colors in your hand and start to play, I think you realize there is sooooo much potential and you can really have a LOT of fun with Glimmer Mist! I cannot get enough of these amazing colors!

petunia670 said...

I really love your card card. I love all your tips on using the mist. Thanks for delving further into the unknown w/ mists! Have a great weekend

I love ALL things Tattered Angels but have not seen the Glitter Glam nor the Chalkboard line yet. Can you help me out with that?

Heather said...

I only have 2 colours of glimmer mist so far but I am definitely enjoying them and would love to try more Tattered Angels products.

Carla said...

GM is a great product and is so usable. I think I am hooked and find that it is my go to item right now. I love the fact that you can even use it to paint on wood, although I have only tried it on MDF.... Keep up the great reviews!
