Mists and Stencils

It's very popular right now...using mists. Here's a twist to try: try spraying your mist over a template and then cut it out and use it as an embellishment rather then the background. You can even embellish it more. Here's what I did...

I took a Glimmer Screen from Tattered Angels and sprayed Glimmer Mist over it.

Then I took glue (I used Helmar's Acid Free Craft Glue) and covered a few spots of the design with it. It may be helpful to use a glue that dries clear.

Then I sprinkled on my glitter (this glitter is from Pink Paislee).

After allowing it to dry, I cut it out. I added a little more glitter, my title, and my journaling.

Here's my full layout:

And this is another layout I made using the same Glimmer Screen, but I used it to create my background.

With mists, I have learned that you just have to play around...have a bit of fun and try new things.

Why don't you share your misting experiences and projects with us! :)

I am loving glimmer mists these days! I made this little canvas mini-album for my mom to thank her for the quilt she made for my daughter: http://studioonesixtytwo.blogspot.com/2010/04/mini-album-gift.html
