Misting Tutorial by Piradee

Hi Again Everyone,

Thought I would share a quick and fun technique that I usually use when it comes to misting. For me I actually prefer the blotches that you get, rather than the even spread of the mist. And it has now slowly become a habit for me, that when I use white cardstock, I start with a light colored mist just to add a bit of tint to the cardstock. Here, I’m using Cream Metallic from Maya Road.



Then using the misting device itself, I start flicking the paint everywhere or at least in the areas that I wanted. This way I have all the colors that I need and also maintain the whiteness of the cardstock, which I prefer.



And here’s a sample of a layout that I did earlier, using the colors that best matched the pattern paper but still having somewhat of a “white” space look.



Thanks again for stopping by and hopefully I’ve inspired to you do something mist, if you’re not already addicted like me...lol.

  6. This is just gorgeous - what a great idea to use just the mister itself to fling - I think this would probably work good for me because it always seems my bottles get clogged anyway!
