Tattered Angels and Cosmo Relay... SON-Rise

This week is my turn for the Blog relay. This month we have brought you some fun creative ideas for uses of Cosmo Cricket products with Tattered Angels products. First off Tattered Angels CHA booth was right next to Cosmo's booth this last winter. And since I was at the demo table, I got to stare straight into Cosmo's booth and fall in love with all of their fun goodies. Some of you may remember back in January I posted about their new Snorkel line, well it is just so adorable, and I absolutely fell in love with it! So for this relay I chose to use Snorkel for my project.

SON Rise

Although most of the pic is covered up, this pic is of my second son on the beach. Seeing him splashing in the waves was such a blessing. We normally don't get down the the beach all that often, but on this particular visit, our son who is normally adverse to uncontrolled environments decided to give the ocean a try. It just melted my heart to see yet one more prayer answered in our little guy. So this page titled SON rise, captures just that. My SON rising above adverse situations, I know it sounds a bit predictable and cheesy (most of my topics are about such things) but these are my day to day joys. Seeing him grow into a health cabable young man is all I could ever pray for. So with each page I record his one step closer.
Ok now for the details: I use the Cosmo paper to create the waves on the bottom of the page, and as well to create the sun. This sun was inspired by a commercial last year. I believe it was a car commercial, and as the car drove through one of the LA tunnels (something that reminded me of my childhood) the tunnel turned into this gorgeous, whimsical, multi layered sun. It reminds me of the turn of the century victorian art that you would see layered in silent movies or puppet shows. I have always been a fan of layers so it is no wonder how this image stayed with me all year long. The background was created using some Frosty Memories Glimmer Glass as a screen to create the white clouds. I misted a light mist of Turquoise Blue over the top. To add to the whimsy, I added the large flourish of Regal Glimmer Chips in the same color. I also added some bolt lace and some Cosmo trim that I sprayed with Sea Glass to match the project. You can also see in the rays of the Sun that I used the Vinage Ice Glimmer Screen as a stamp with Dreamsicle Glimmer Mist. Some additional colors of Glimmer Mist that I used were, Old Lace,and Sand to create the sea bed. For the title I used the Regal Framed Font Alphabet with Meadow Green Glimmer Mist and Peach Delight Glimmer Mist.
Thanks for peeking, I am currently in New York, so I will try and post some pictures of my Tattered Travels when I get back (I have a few trips to post still!) Enjoy your Memorial Day and snuggle up with those you love. Especially on a day like today, we need to treasure eachother and relationships.
