Gettin' Misty!!

Have you heard about the new challenge over at the Noel Mignon Challenge Blog? It's a good one - all about using mists. This month's Very Virginia kit comes with a bottle of Maya Mist in Antique Silver and I have been spraying everything in sight! Here's a layout I made with this kit:

My first wedding layout. Not your typical wedding look, but I wanted to have some fun with it!
I loooove that House of 3 paper by Pink Paislee. It's clear embossed, so you can mist or ink right over it, and then wipe the excess off to reveal the embossing pattern. Genius!

I wanted to get all my misting techniques tried out on this layout, so I used a diecut paper by October Afternoon from the Sweet Sue kit and used it as a mask to mist the top and left sides of the paper. It's pretty subtle, but I like how it turned out.

Here's a better view of that House of 3 paper, all misted up! And how much do I love layering my titles? A LOT! See the laces? I cut a journaling piece in half, inked the edges, set a few eyelets with my Cropadile, and glued them to either side of the frame to make it look like a whole new piece. Easy peazy!

I used some Donna Salazar Smooch Spritz for the dark little splatters on the background - love the speckled look that it gave me! I cut a frame from the Hambly overlay and used some Glossy Accents to glue it to a piece of kraft cardstock. After it dried I cut the cardstock around the frame and sewed a couple of messy stitches over it. I have had a bottle of walnut spray just sitting there, so I sprayed it over the frame and then wiped the excess off of the overlay. This left me with a nice kind of gravelley look to the kraft cardstock. If I were to do it again, I would spray/splatter some alcohol ink so that it also stuck to the overlay.

This was such a fun new challenge! We have been talking about mists over at the Noel Mignon message board for a while and this was the perfect opportunity to just get over our fears and mist!! I hope you will hop on over to the challenge blog to take a looksee at what the other girls on the DT have done for this challenge, and don't forget to pick up your Very Virginia kit at the shop - V's companion class is gonna be hot!!

Happy Monday!
