January's Focus- Mists (and Molding Paste)

Here's a great way to use mists- mix them with another medium. I used molding paste for this layout, but it's also possible to mix mists with white acrylic paint, gesso or gel medium for different effects. I was going for the dimensional look, so molding paste was the best choice, since that's what it's meant for and holds its shape so well (even when mixed with a small amount of liquid).


I wanted to create a fun background for a layout, and I love the combination of bright yellow and white, so I used white cardstock and a circle stencil.


Look at that lovely dimension!


And here's the finished layout-


I used a few scraps here under the photo, but the rest of the layout is quite simple.


I used Heidi Swapp's color shine in Primrose to add a splash of pink (which is what I do most of the time with my mists, splatter them around).


The rest was just adding the title and some cute embellishments. Wood veneers and paper clips.



I hope you're inspired to try something new with your mists, and thanks for visiting!
