How To Use Glimmer Glaze By Tattered Angels

Posted by bluejeans7

Now,  I know we have all heard of Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels, but did you know about their Glimmer Glaze? I know Glimmer Glaze isn't new but for some reason I missed it when it first came out, so I decided to try it for my CT reveal. 

I have to admit that I was a little scared to try something totally new to me for a reveal, but I was also excited.  Just ask Pam, I bugged and texted her a lot.  LOL!  Sorry Pam!  Glimmer Glazes work on so many different surfaces.  You can use them on paper, wood, metal, glass and more!

I Love Being Your Mom:  I started this layout by spraying a sheet of white cardstock with the Chalkboard Teal High Heel and Decadence sprays.  I embossed some metal sheets and then painted them with the Midnight Rendezvous, Emerald Cove and Cowboy Glimmer Glazes.  

I added my title, some doodling around the edges and this layout was finished.  I can't believe that I created a layout with NO pattern paper!  LOL!!

Picture Perfect:  Once again I started with a white cardstock.  This time I sprayed it with the Chalkboard Polka Dot Pink, Decadence, Sprout and Firefly.  Then I used a couple sheets of patterned paper from the Bo Bunny Petal Pushers line.  I embossed another sheet of metal and then painted it with the Chianti Glimmer Glaze.  

For embellishments I used some Zva Creative pearls and Prima flowers.  I sprayed one flower with the Chalkboard Firefly.  The other three flowers were painted with the Wicked and Chianti Glimmer Glazes.  Then I added a little of the Pewter Glimmer Glaze for my center.

Forever In My Heart:  On my last layout, I used papers from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey line.  I punched and embossed a dozen hearts.  Then I painted half the hearts with the Chianti Glimmer Glaze and the other half with the Midnight Rendezvous Glimmmer Glaze.  I love how these hearts turned out!

Altered Boxes:  After making my layouts I decided I wanted to try altering a couple of boxes, one is a tin box and the other is wood.  Glimmer Glaze works great on both metal and wood.  I first painted the tin box with some white acrylic paint to cover the design.  After the paint dried I brushed on a layer of the Sugar Can Glimmer Glaze.  

Then I used a fan brush to add a thin layer of the Cowboy Glimmer Glaze and then sprayed it lightly with the Chalkboard Sprout spray.  On the lid I place some Mark Richards mosaic sticker tiles and a Prima flower.  For the wood box I started with a coat of Cowboy Glimmer Glaze, then added a heavy coat of Sugar Can Glimmer Glaze.  

After that dried, I went in with a fan paintbrush and added highlights of the Chianti Glimmer Glaze.  I also brushed the glass with the Chianti and then metal hinges and clasp with the Sugar Cane.  Some Zva Creative pearls and Prima flowers finish this box.
