I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I've discovered what could possibly be my new favorite thing to play with ... color mists! What started out as one bottle has rapidly grown to 6 bottles almost over night. Another thing for me to collect! I love all the rich colors they come in as well as the luminous glitter in it. I like my sparkle, and these create such an interesting rich shimmer.
There are so many fun things to do with them, and I found another way to use them. Seeing all these gorgeous summer flowers around, and no way to really save them I went straight to the mists. I turned real garden flowers into stamps.
I used the technique on a page where I made my Mom and Auntie their own flower bouquets, how perfect to make my own paper of flowers inspired by their flowers.
And I'll show you the process, which was a bit messy, but really worth it in the end result!
|Flat flowers or petals that are a bit |
stiffer work best! Hold the flower
and spray a few times, shake the
excess off so it isn't so soaking wet.
|Place on paper and press down. |
Make sure to push the petals down
and the center so you can get as
much of the texture as possible.
|Lift up! Repeat again, the second time usually works better to get more of the texture since there isn't as much mist so it won't look so much like a blob.|
The possibilities of these sprays are really endless and can be used in so many creative ways!
