Recently I have been using my mists for backgrounds. It is a messy process - for me anyway. I end up with the stuff everywhere. I like the masks and have been tempted to buy one or two that I know I would use. However when I added everything to my shopping basket and it went over what I thought was reasonable to spend, something had to go.
Masks or Papers!! Hmmm what would you choose?
You'll see from the layout I'm going to share with you today that the new MME Find your Wings and Fly papers won.
so.... with no masks......what is a girl to do?
Make her own?
Not a bad idea.....now I did think about cutting out my own template, instead I opted to use washi tape.
I love how a little washi tape can transform a layout. I also love how the tape is repositionable...over and over and over. It's not often that we stick something down and are then able to move it effortlessly when we decide we don't want/like it where it is. For me this is the best thing and because of this ((not forgetting that it comes in all different wonderful colours and patterns)) my collection of tape is growing.
So this is how it worked for me......I created a chevron effect slightly off center.
Then misted the page (in the garden!) spraying over the washi taped chevrons with a blue mist and adding droplets of yellow mist. Ideally you should let your mist dry....me, I'm far too impatient and carefully pulled off the tape.
This is what it looked like.
and this is what I ended up with.
This photo was taken at seaworld late in the afternoon. We were slowly walking across the bridge towards the shamu stadium. A couple were taking photos and I asked if they would like me to take one of them together...(ever the scraper!) In return they took one of us all.
He made us laugh when he said ".....now we just need mom to smile !!"
It's not very often I share how to do something here- I always feel that if i know everyone else does too. I've had a few comments recently where i've been asked how it was done so this time I remembered to take some photos.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
