Misting die cuts

Happy Monday friends! I don't know about you, but I've been scrapping up a storm using my "Enchanted Meadow" kit by Clique Kits. I tell ya, these kits are getting prettier and prettier and I love them. I love when I am inspired to try new things to help push me to do something new. This month I decided to play with my mists. It's been awhile since I've pulled them out to play. Before I started creating this layout, I knew that I wanted fall leaves. So I cut two large leaves using my Silhouette Portrait. Then I placed the leaves on kraft cardstock and sprayed the leaves with my mists, leaving a naked spot on the kraft paper that I want to keep as part of the layout! I love how it looks. When spraying, be sure not to spray too close, otherwise it will look like puddles, rather than mists. I spray about 6 inches above the layout.



After I sprayed the die cuts, I removed them aside to let them dry a bit and wiped the excess mists off the paper using a paper towel. This helps keep the paper from wrinkling.



Once the die cuts and mist dried, I applied the leaves to my layout and embellished it with papers and a few pieces of the Color magic resist die cup pieces from the kit! These little die cuts are fantastic! I love them and can't get enough of them. I simply used a paint brush to brush the mist on the dies and set them aside to dry before applying them to my layout using glue. What do you think?


And here's my layout after everything was dried and applied! I love the way the mist looks on the kraft paper!
