Drippage - Tattered Angels
For this 'Mist-ables' Tattered Angels layout, I started with kraft paper from Hambly Screenprints. Did you know that their screen prints resist glimmer mists? They are a perfect match. (You don’t always have to seek out papers specifically printed with a resist – you may already have Hambly or other ‘resistables’ in your stash).
I misted the background with Apricot Nectar Chalkboard and Granite Glimmer mist. Once it was dry, I added spritzes of Lily Pad and Pop Rocks mists.
I also misted canvas die-cuts in Lily Pad, and added machine stitching for contrast.
The canvas tag (from Canvas Corp) was misted in Apricot Nectar Chalkboard. Then I dug into my stash of scraps for the patterned papers, and customized them with more mists. The green was masked with a Pink Paislee stencil and misted with Lily Pad. The music note paper was misted with Old Lace.
Speaking of lace – the self-adhesive lace here (Love My Tapes) was misted with Pop Rocks. It’s easy to mist self-adhesive items like this lace and washi tapes for example – stick them down to your misting mat, mist, then let dry. Then you can peel and stick to your project as usual.
The grungeboard letters were misted with Lily Pad. This gorgeous chipboard shape from Dusty Attic was primed with gesso then sprayed with Grape Ape Chalkboard. It isn’t necessary to prime chipboard, but it gives a whole new effect.
And the story...
