I love the new kraft cardstock by Bazzill.  It has little dots embossed in it.  Great texture.  I sprayed with Maya Mist using a scrap of a scrolly lace paper as a mask.

I cut one of Prima's felt branches in two pieces so I could use it alongside my photo strip as well as under the lone photo on the left.
The patterned papers are by Harmonie and the chipboard accents (including the title arrow) are Crate Paper. I pulled some magic mesh out of my stash, a frame rubon and some Making Memory word stickers.

Punches + maya mist = sweet home decor

Hello scrappy girls! SO - I am currently crazy for mists. Particularly Maya Mists. They are so much fun, that I have been spraying everything. My boys are now Sunflower yellow, gunmetal gray, beautiful blue and royal red. Not really. And I don't think those are technical names for the Maya mists, so don't ask Lynette for those exact names. I'll get in trouble.
I have been making little art projects with my two butterfly punches, and I used them this week to make a mask on cardstock. My first project was very symmetrical:

It looks pretty cool up on the wall. Then I thought i would do something a little more free, and here are the steps.
I chose a light pink cardstock for the background, and punched a bunch of butterflies out of cardstock and laid them out on top.

Then I took some Bubblegum Metallic mist by Maya road and sprayed. (please note that an opened file folder is not big enough for this application and the mist will get on your floor and it will be hard to wash off)

Dump off your butterflies and you are left with: (could totally be used on it's own as background paper for a layout at this point)
(you are also left with a bunch of pink butterflies that are sprayed and can be used on any other project). So, then I punched smaller butterflies in a similar light pink with a bit of texture, and applied tiny pop dots:

I stuck them on top of the masked butterflies and folded up their wings a little for dimension.
Matted in a deep pink and then white...if this was in a white shadowbox frame, it would be smashing! Yes, smashing! And a wonderful baby gift/little girls gift/teacher gift/mama get the picture.
and of course you can change all the variables in this project : the background paper, the punches, the color of the mist, the paper used for the many possibilities and a fairly quick and easy thing to put together. The misting is total fun, I'll show you another layout I whipped up later this week. Heather is misting all the time and I think it looks fantastic.

Bo Bunny and border punches

I put this layout together last night using another of my Glimmer Screens and a couple shades of Glimmer Mist.  Can you see where I used my little butterflies punchies as masks?  Love doing that.

The papers are scraps from my Bo Bunny Easter pages.  I used 3 different border punches and layered the pieces before adding the bling and Prima blossoms.  The cute little bird at the bottom is from the green paper.

I had all 3 photos stacked with nothing in between them at first, but felt they blended too much so I slipped a border strip in between each picture. 

My kidlets were so cute way back when.
