layout with ink or mist ~ shimelle


recently  HeidiSwapp Media Team member, kim jeffress and myself were asked to contribute to shimelle's blog...
here's my layout and my answer to her challenge...

layout with ink or mist for @jamiepate

the challenge was to show how i use mist on my scrapbook layouts. oh, well that's an easy challenge...
how many can you find here?

of course my go to mist is almost always and forever Color Shine. for this challenge I stuck with three colors: Coral, Blush, and a tiny touch of Navy.

there are several ways mist was utilized to add color and interest to this layout...
seen here are those large beautiful hearts from the Color Magic Paper Goods. these are resist pieces that have beautiful patterns that show through once sprayed with the mist. the hearts are sprayed with Blush.
the 'love' die cut is from my collection found at the sizzix eshapestore and it's called Love&Hearts. the cut was done with white cardstock so that i could color it what i chose, which was with the Navy Color Shine. gives a great pop to this embellishment cluster.

in this photo is a peek of the vellum i used for layering. it is stenciled with Blush Color Shine and makes for this great soft addition to these silly photos. i love using vellum anyway, but with a touch of Shine it is an awesome embellishment.

o.k...a couple of things are going on here...
first, the page was stenciled with a subtle spray of Blush.
the edges of the background page were distressed and then swiped with mist.
the mini shipping tag was sprayed, again with Blush.
the string sprayed with Navy.
and lastly another die cut from this die cut collection cut in white cardstock and sprayed with a pop of Navy.

a larger shipping tag was sprayed with Coral and used as a layering piece that grounded the hearts. love those combinations of colors, textures and layers.

lots of ways to have fun with Color Shine on a layout. these are just a few. hope you are inspired and discover a few of your own.

till next time...
