Mist, Misting & Mistables!

For my assignment scheduled at Made With Love this week, I was assigned to use Mists on my project. Mists are one of my favourite mediums to 'spruce' up a plain layout immediately. They add color and with different techniques, you can achieve a variety of looks, blotchy patches, droplets, big blobs etc. I was also itching to use the Prima mistables after I had bought them for some time when the Prima stuff just flooded the shelves a few weeks ago, so this is it! I misted on the Pink Paislee- House of Three paper with various ink colors, before layering with the rest of the stuff. I used a layer paper from Glitz Design and attached a lace around die-cut from Prima's Madeline paper line. I also cut out part of the Prima packaging from the Prima Mistables and attached it down. Then I started to mist on the flower, leaves and swirl cut-out from the mistables sheet. When the cut-outs were dry, I was pleasantly surprised at the how the cut-outs rolled up. Wow! That gave texture and dimension immediately! I cut out the flowers and rolled it up such that it looked 3-dimensional and folded the petals back to 'open' it up. After which, I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze to outline the flower petals and draw on the swirl.
I added Prima flower centers to the middle of the two smaller flowers and as the larger flower also had a deeper hollow, I dripped Glossy Accents into the hollow and filled it up with beads before finally adding a crystal stick-on. Love the final outcome after all that experimenting! I also added a doily that I had cut-out and misted from another Pink Paislee- House of Three Parisan Anthology paper and inserted it below the flowers. The wooden butterflies were from Studio Calico which I had tried misting with before and they really take on the colors well, but I decided not to mist them in the end for this layout as I preferred a 'naked' feel and decided to add some crystals on it. A side profile of the layout...now I am wondering how to store this layout. But I guess that would have to wait as the layout is down at the store for display.
