It Broke My Heart - Art journaling with Tattered Angels

In May, my assignment for Tattered Angels included art journaling, so here is one of those pages.

I started out with a background of Chalkboard mist in Sprout and Apricot Nectar, and Mel’s Diner Glimmer Mist. Once those were dry, I stenciled over top with Bell Bottom Glimmer Mist.

I die cut wings from a piece of burlap from Canvas Corp, which I brightened with a little gesso, then coated with Chandelier Glimmer Glam (it’s hard to capture the glittery effect in a photo, but it sparkles).

I used stamps from the Architectural Trims and Chillin’ stamp sets, and highlighted the circles with Midnight Rendezvous Glimmer Glaze.

I also highlighted a few areas with Oil Slick Glimmer Glaze.

This is a beautiful page - I love the color combination and the burlap wings - adding the gesso to them really made them pop. Great job!
