Over at the Color Room this week ,
Dusty Pink, Light Moss Green, Creamy Chamois and Dusky Mauve
make up the beautiful soft palette .
This blog post title was inspired by Mo's comment on my previous post -
where I mentioned that misting isn't always
the best technique to use on a layout sometimes.
Now I'll try & answer the misting question here for this layout .
Before starting on this layout, I was inspired firstly by the colors -
the Shabby Chic Majestic Breeze pp by Prima came to mind immediately.
Next I selected the cardstock/pps that would work with the sketch,
the palette and my main patterned paper choice.
& since I was determined to follow the sketch this week ,
it inspired me to use the TA Garden screen which I misted in on the top right hand corner
and bottom left corner .
I used GM Black Magic & Viva Pink to give depth & color to the scroll patterns.
I also knew that I would want to work in some vines, pearl swirls & lace trims .
I felt misting here would give a more interesting layer of color & pattern
for the eventual layers to come.
Misting with a large screen is also the most efficient way
to get an intricate pattern in quickly for me ,
rather than inking .
I wanted the lace trim to have more dimension on the layout here ,
as well as to give it a sort of garland effect perhaps .
So happy I got over my misting withdrawal now . ;)
