A Bit More Adventurous!

I have been trying to be a bit more adventurous with mists and paints on my pages, it isn't something that comes naturally as the end result can be a bit too random and I like my pages to be very structured and just so. I have enjoyed adding a bit of mist here and there though so I thought I would share how I used it on this page using this month Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook.



1. I designed my page and decided exactly where I wanted the misting to be (if I aimed right!) I created a semi circle template using a dinner plate and a sheet of cardsotck and stuck it lightly in place using repro herma.


2. I misted across the top of the semicircle, to get the best mist hold the bottle vertically when you are spraying that way it prevents lots of air bubbles causing those big blobs from spluttering out.


3. I removed the template and stitched around the semicircle.


4. Then I simply built up my page.


I also misted around the edge of my photo, I simply created a mask slightly smaller than my photo and held it firmly in place whilst I sprayed then stitched around the inside of the misted edge.


I don't think I will ever be a great mister but it is fun to try something a bit different every so often!
