Tuesday Tips

Today I have an easy and simple tip for you that adds that extra "something" to your projects. See the circles in the background of this layout? Here is how I made them:

First, I created the layout. Now, this is probably not the ideal order in which to do this, but if you are like me, you often get to the end of a layout and decide it needs something more. You can work with that!
Second, I die cut a bunch of circles in various sizes using my Silhouette and some Couture Cardstock. I will use the circles on another layout I have in mind.
Third, I laid the negative from the circles over my layout and sprayed it with "Old Lace" Glimmer Mist, which is a very light shade. This keeps the effect subtle. Since my layout was nearly complete, I covered the rest of it with newspaper, so my photo and embellishments wouldn't get misted.


Easy, right? I love the subtle effect and how it adds so much to my layout!

I used Pink Paislee's Cupid Collection for this layout, which is now on sale in the YSS store. Have fun misting!

This is a really great idea! I've been on a misting kick lately and am looking for new ways to mist. Thanks for the inspiration!
