La Magie des Lanterns - Tattered Angels


This is my third layout using the Bold Brights Paint System from Tattered Angels. This time, I wanted to show this bright paint system with brightly coloured photos.

I wanted to mist the background with the Teal High Heel chalkboard, but I didn’t want the intense opaque colour, so I misted the paper with water first, then gave it a good dose of the Chalkboard, and immediately blotted with a towel and brayer. The water allows the Chalkboard mist to ‘float’ briefly, allowing you to get this mottled effect if you blot right away.


I stamped the pink dots pattern using Pink Lipstick glimmer glam.


I painted these older Heidi Swapp resist letters with the Meadow Green glimmer mist. Even though there was already some black printing on the patterned paper, I added some stamping with the asian characters.


The Love My Tapes lace was misted with Meadow Green glimmer mist.


I forgot to photograph the journaling, but it simply states these photos were taken at the Montreal Botanical Gardens in 2009.
