Tonite I have another project that I did for the Crafty Secrets/Tattered Angels "March Mix" challenge. I found this unfinished wood mirror at Michaels or Crafts Direct for a dollar or so, and had it in my project cabinet. I pulled it out and was going to paint it, and then I thought, HEY! I wonder what glimmer mist would look like on the raw wood!
I laid the mirror down on some cardboard and spritzed away with Tattered Angels "Patina" colored glimmer mist. I was SO thrilled that the glimmer mist covered beautifully, and brought out the woodgrain! Because it's water-based, the color soaked right into the wood and left a cool shimmery coating!

Then I took images from Crafty's new "Garden Scraps" (these images are printed on a heavy cardstock), and glued them to the front of the frame with mod-podge. After everything was dry, I gave it another coat of a clear 'pearl' colored glimmer mist.
I also had some white Bazzil stitched ribbon that I had bought at Archivers in their $1.99 section, and spritzed the ribbon with the glimmer mist too! The color soaked into the ribbon, so now my ribbon color matches my frame perfectly!
Here's a close-up of some of the cool images from Crafty's Garden Scraps sheets.
I have one more project I couldn't resist doing; I made a BINGO card! More to follow!
