Have you been getting your mist on lately?? LOL I have been, and loving it.
Today I would like to share with you 3 layouts, a couple of which I have been experimenting with a couple of new techniques for me, using gesso and the fabulous mists and chalkboards.
The wonderful Amy Tangerine American Crafts thickers look fabulous with the application of chalkboard glimmer mists!
Doesn’t this calico die cut butterfly [made for me by some fabulous creative friends A Lil Somethin’], look wonderful with the 2 tone Chalkboard glimmer mists!
For this particular layout background I have masked off a stamped butterfly image and scrapped some white gesso on and around it.
From this close-up you can see that I have coloured in the stamped butterfly images, and then added lots and lots of extra splats, using gesso, and Chalkboard glimmer mists; Valencia, and Seven Seas. To apply my splats I have just used a small soft bristle paint brush and tapped it randomly over and around the stamped images.
For this final layout I have used one of my all time favourite background treatments with tissue paper. I have peeled it back to reveal a chipboard feather embellishment; on which I have layered my photo and title alpha.
I have used the fabulous Fairway and Valencia Chalkboard glimmer mists on and around the tissue paper to highlight and draw the viewers eye to the photo. I have colour coordinated the photo and title alpha by giving both a colour wash with Valencia chalkboard glimmer mist.
Cheers and Happy Creating
