More Tattered Angels and Prima!

Hey friends!
Hope you all had a great weekend! It was a little crazy for us so it flew by too fast! Next weekend will be pretty much the same. It's that time of year with celebrations, plans and school is winding down. I am knee deep in kits for the Donna Downey Inspired event...I need to get them mailed today. So wish me luck on that-LOL!

Prima has continued their product swap with Tattered Angels and I wanted to share my large canvas bag I covered with Glimmer Mist! I used Cinder to color the background-it took about two to three coats to get the depth I was going for. But the strap has more of a washout look. I love the two tone look.

I let the Cinder layers dry completely and then covered it with Claudine Helmuth's Multi Medium to protect the surface and it will make it eay to spot clean if needed. Then I added Spring Rain mist-love this color! You can see the subtle blue shine over the Cinder. The light cathes it just right and it looks so cool.

I added Prima felt roses and felt stems from our De Vines line-I am loving these on all kinds of projects! Then of course I had to add the bling and velvet leaves.

Hope you like it-It came together better than I expected. A large surface can be intimidating to work with especialy with a lot of color. I am here to tell you-just go for it. You'll be so happy when it's done and you will have a fabulous bag for your SLR or video cameras...totally unique!
Be back soon with more news and projects!
Thanks friends..
xoxo Cari
