Too Late for Sushi - Tattered Angels style...

I wanted to add metal to a layout, as I love the look of metal on ‘boy’ pages. The background card stock was spritzed with Glimmer Mist (“Caribbean Blue“, “Tattered Leather“, “Black Magic“, “Graphite“) and Chalkboard Mist (“Peacock“, “Decadence“).

I coated these letters with a metalic paint, then glammed them up with “Blue Suede Shoes” & “Tide Pool” Glimmer Glam.

I took the opportunity to use up a bunch of older, mismatched metal embellishments, because the Glam and Glaze are great equalizers. I painted the embellishments with Glimmer Glaze in “Waterfall” & “Oil Slick“, and Glimmer Glam in “Rustic” and “Blue Suede Shoes“, and spritzed a few with “Peacock” Chalkboard Mist.

Glimmer Mist - Caribbean Blue, Black Magic, Tattered Leather, Graphite
