Altered Frame Using Glimmer Mist

I didn't have time to make anything today because my little Lily Bug was sick.  Turns out she has strep:(  She's asleep in my lap as we speak (I write….you read…you know what I mean).   Here's a little project I did a while back, but hadn't posted yet. I hope you enjoy!

It started out as a plain, light wooden frame…blahh!  Using a round paint brush, I painted the frame with Glimmer Mist (Suede).  Yay!!  It came out almost velvety looking, yum! 

Tattered angels-1 I used Chalkboard Glimmer Mist (Strawberry Shortcake) to mist a Tattered Angels tile, and then attached Tim Holtz hitch fasteners to it.  I Glimmer Misted (with Suede) a strip of paper, accordion folded it, taped the ends together, and attached a Tim Holtz button to create the flower on the bottom of the top frame (sounds confusing, but hopefully the picture says it all).
