Get Messy Lesson Two: Scrap Freak

Lesson Two is up at ScrapFreak!

Today's lesson is all about misting, different types, different techniques, etc. Head on over there for some great misting conversation. 

I also talked about a recent layout with a bunch of misting techniques (modified from a Studio Calico CKC class): 

-- for the blue dotted paper card, I punched out a couple of stars to use as a mask; lifted up the stars and outlined the star shape. I then took the stars that had been my mask, trimmed them a bit and stuck them on pop-dots for a bit more emphasis
-- the next card one was also very simple. I stuck down the word 'you' with thickers, misted, and then lifted up the thickers and placed them on the top of the card
-- the bottom left card was stamped and heat embossed with American Crafts Zing (any embossing powder will do) and then misted over. The embossing powder acts as a resist and gives a cool effect.

Thanks very much for stopping by!
