Making it Mistable

Syndicated (with a few edits) from Tattered Angels Blog

With all of the great colors from Tattered Angels the answer is — not much.

I love the tone on tone look you can great when using chalkboard and glimmer mist together.  For the background of this layout I used Firefly Chalkboard and Sun Sisters glimmer mist and a harlequin stencil from Crafter’s Workshop. Uber thanks to my lovely friend Heather Harrell for this photo of me.  All the paper came from the July Cocoa Daisy Kit – love, love, love the greys and yellows.

I’m not the only one who thinks these colors look great together… I finished this layout at the beginning of the month and then tuned into Tattered TV and there’s Wendy using these two in all their glory on a variety of surfaces and textures.  Great minds think alike – did you miss that episode – not to worry – check it out here: 10@10 Chalkboard vs Glimmer Mist

Working with all the mists, glams, glazes over the past year has really opened up my right brain – I tend to be very sequential and linear (as you can tell by the above layout) so to remind myself that great things can happen when you just let go, I created this wall hanging for my craft studio.

Canvas is one of my favorite mediums to mist.  For the background, I covered the canvas with a light application of Polka Dot Pink Chalkboard and dabbed it off with a paper towel.  Then I sprayed Patina and flicked a little Pink Lipstick Glam.  Then I took a scrap of Basic Grey paper and used the Butterfly stencil and more Patina and glued to the front.

I hope you embrace this philosophy too, I know you’ll be happy with the results.  Until next time…
