You Rock

Today, I'm sharing a page I made for the weekly challenge over on the Studio Calico blog. They challenged us to make a misted background. When I attended Scrapfest this year, I stopped by the Studio Calico booth and saw Mr. Huey in action. I was sold. Now, I'm misting everything. I'm no expert, but I'm having a lot of fun!

I used a bubble template that I've had for years, but have never used. I didn't know how it would turn out, so I just placed it on the cardstock and misted like crazy. I love the look of masking. I added the photo on top of the mask. I liked the idea of the mask peeking out. Then, I added a couple of banners. I'm big into banners these days. The red ones I cut up myself. Super easy to do. Then you can customize banners for any project. The possibilities are endless. Love that.

The paper is from Studio Calico's Memoir collection. I'm a huge fan. I used Mr. Huey Plum Thumb, Heirloom Blue (a favorite) and Custard.

What about you? Do you mist and mask on your projects?

I LOVE this! I haven't tried masking with my mists before, but I do like using them when I can :)

This is great! I don't really do misting on my projects as it's quite daunting but I would love to give it a go! Becky x

This turned out great! I love the journaling around the edge of the page. I love to mist too but I haven't been misting enough. Need to put it on the list to do this weekend!
