Hey all! Nicole S. here with today's insider tip about misting. My love for Mister Huey's mists has been sparked recently first by the amazing new colors that were just released... LOVE!...and second by the lightbulb moment I had about masking. I realized I don't enjoy just haphazardly misting on my layout. It freaks me out a bit with the randomness of it. :) But once I realized I can MASK off shapes and/or mist objects that are cut out and then apply them to my page... well, now I'm a mist convert! For this page I wanted to create a circle of Lemonade mist to contain a bunch of embellishments and my title. I could have just sprayed a piece of cardstock, then cut out a circle and adhered it to my page. But I wanted it to be on the background page itself. So I just traced a circle in the middle part of a scrap sheet of cardstock and cut it out.
Then I positioned the mask on my background paper where I wanted it and sprayed away. (I had to use some other scraps to completely cover the background edges too.) Here's what it looked like afterwards.
Then I started designing my page and embellishing my Lemonade circle. I used lots of bit and pieces from Into the Woods and Sunny Clearing, some older SC stamps, and Zing embossing powders.
Supplies: Into the Woods and Sunny Clearing kits; Mister Huey's Lemonade mist; embossing powders: Zing Opaque Rouge and Zing Opaque Blush; Zap Heat Tool; adhesive foam tab squares
Don't be afraid to try masks of all different shapes and sizes...the positive and negative parts of die cuts too. So many fun options when it comes to masking and misting! Have fun!
