Misting with masks is my absolute favorite way to use mists! And I have yet to actually use a company made mask. Although I do have this cute one by Studio Calico...
But for my projects so far using masks, they have all been "home made". I like to find product within my scrap supplies that will make great masks.
This is actually an 8x8 page I made for a "5 Things" album I am creating about my husband. Another page is "Five U2 songs that make me think of you" :)
Anyway, I had that giant manilla envelope and tag from Melissa Frances to use
for a DT assignment. I thought the envelope would make a great "pocket"
to hold my tag with my list of reasons, but it was too plain.
A tip - do not use the foam Thickers. They were a pain to peel off. I found the ones that didn't have as much adhesive on the back worked better as well. Easier to pull off after everything was dry.
Then I turned around and use the stars I had cut out...
And my last project this week is one you have seen recently, but it goes along with my home made mask theme today...
So like I said, I really like to make my own masks! And I think it is something I will continue to do as long as I am misting on projects :)
Misting Tip from the Internet
One more thing I would like to share is this great tip I found on soaphousemama's blog this week! She had a great tip on using a Tim Holtz distress pad, paintbrush and water to create droplets on a layout in place of mist. You can see her post here! She has a great step by step description of how she created her layout and talks about the tip in there. I love reading her blog because of her step by step's :)
Thanks so much for coming by this week! I really enjoyed putting this series together and hope everyone was able to take away at least new misting tip :)
Have a great weekend!
