 Hello all! It's Friday and time for another inspiring post with our featured artist for today, Amy! She is sharing a technique that I think is so cool! I love when people take plain paper and create something from it ... it is super creative! Speaking of creative, make sure you visit Amy's blog: to see more neat projects and get some great inspiration! Let's get to know Amy now before I post her technique ;)

Glimmer Mist Resist Technique Journal Boxes by Amy Bender

Would you like to create some custom journal boxes with Glimmer Mist and a Glaze pen?  This technique will appear magically before your eyes!

You will need:
-Glimmer mist in desired journal box color, I used Strawberry Shortcake Chalkboard Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels
-a white or clear Glaze Pen by Sakura
-a journal box cut from white cardstock, I created mine with the Slice

Using the Glaze Pen, doodle along the edges of the journal box.


Add lines for journaling if desired.


Let the ink from the pen dry completely.  This should only be a few minutes.  The longer it dries, the better the end result will be.

Mist dry journal box with Glimmer Mist using even light coats.

Let the Glimmer Mist dry and watch your doodling magically appear!


You’ve now created a Glimmer Mist Resist Journal Box! 


Thanks so much, Amy, for sharing this inspirational tutorial!!
