Love u !



More torn circle frame experimentation here . 
I tore back the paper in a circle to the size
 that was good for my wallet sized pic. 
I water distressed the paper & while wet, moulded
 the paper around a brush handle -
 even with the brush removed and left to air dry
 the paper will still retain that rounded dimension . 
I then misted in pink close to the frame for a heavier color result .

I finally try out some string twirling here - & tried to get in a heart shape here
  - & loving  how fun & easy it is ! 

Trying to finish up what's left of my pot of Pixie Dust Blingz . 
Paper is from the Prima Strawberry Kisses line. 

Layout design inspired by a sketch by Jeni Boisvert . 

Some Glimmer Mist tips from Heidi Swapp from her  latest live ! show  for Tattered Angels today  : 

1. Using different doily patterns as masks & even as stamps .
( yes ! whip that brayer out , spray a doily generously with mist & then stamp it on another paper ,
 brayering the doily unto the paper )
2. Heidi likes ivory paper by 7 Gypsies  , manila file folders for an absorbent background to mist on.
3. She also likes to use paper towels after misting, unto her paper, to pick out the excess mist .
4. Don't be shy about using GM generously on your paper ! ;)
