You are going to LOVE these…

Jan 23, 2011

I was asked to create a canvas for Ranger’s designer wall at CHA. Well the product we had to highlight was their Perfect Pearl Mists and their new Perfect Pearls colors.You are going to LOVE these. Check out Suze Weinberg’s blog to see the new colors and a few sneak peeks of her canvas… I cannot wait to see it in person.

It was fun to create what ever I wanted with the only requirements being it had to be my style and I had to use the products sent my way. I used WAY MORE Ranger products on my canvas than what was required but one technique seemed to lead to another which meant using another product and so on…

I think the Rock Candy Crackle Paint looks AWESOME on the frame… I love the chippy feel you get when it dries. I nearly used an entire bottle on my frame. I just kept adding layers and layers of it here and there. And the Cheese cloth you see on the canvas is held down by applying BeesWax, brushed with Perfect Pearls and heated once again… oh it is gorgeous and you have GOT TO TRY it if you haven’t.

And look at this rose made using Tim’s Tattered Florals die and old book pages… I love how the Perfect Pearls mixed with Perfect Pearl Mists looks on paper roses. Just gorgeous! Then topping them off with crystal coarse glitter and Platinum Stickles sends them over the top. The hardest part though was sending this beauty off as I will not get it back. I think they found fingernail marks in the side of my box because I had my nails dug in deep as the Fed Ex man took it from me… oh it was hard to let this go.

Here is a list of all the Ranger Products I used… I was not kidding when I said I used a lot.

Tim Holtz Alterations – Tattered Florals

And yes… I need a serious intervention with the UTEE… I tell ya I cannot stop thinking about ALL the possibilities using this crazy stuff. Yesterday, I promised a sweet friend I was NOT going to heat up my melting pot. Because well… I have a million other things I need to be doing to get ready for CHA. But it seems I lied because last night I made these and think they are so CUTE. I believe she will forgive me if I give her one.

And I made another cuff using more of the new Maya Road trims… gosh they are nice and perfect for flower making.

Hope you are inspired to play today… make a mess… it’s so fun!
