Scared of Misting?

Are you are scared of Glimmer Mist....Don't be! I was once you, and reluctantly spritzed layouts and hesitantly bought colors of mist that I thought I might use a squirt of. I have since begun using more and more Glimmer Mist and my absolute favorite color is the Haunted Shadow! It's a great shade of almost maroon, almost purple with a gold sparkle. I use it to mist on layouts randomly, but I also like the idea of controlling the area that is misted.

Here I used it for a random spritz or two AFTER I had the whole thing together... I like the un-misted space below the flowers that can be seen, I think it gives it some depth.


For this LO, I was playing with my new butterfly embossing folder/cutting die set, and decided to use the negative to bring in the design on the corner of the page and allow for a grouping of butterflies without them all being 3D. I added a half pearl to the misted butterfly for the head, just as I did on the die cut/embossed butterflies.
