Snow burst & WINTER magic - Canvas Corp Brands


Can you imagine having -25 degrees Celcius? As I´m writing this is has been so cold for over a week. Even though the cold we go outside. Is sounds strange, but you actually get used to the cold. Today I´m sharing a layout using a where I have used Tattered Angels mists to make a water color effect on my background.
 This technique is really easy. You need just a few basic supplies. I have used:
White Gesso
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist “Navy Blue“, “Jack Frost“, “Dragonfly” & “Icicle Blue
Glimmer Mist is a water-based tinted mist with mica that is perfect for tinting paper, fabric, wood, silk, cork, burlap, terra-cotta and other porous surfaces.  The touch of mica gives a beautiful glimmer with each spray.  Over 120 colors of Glimmer Mist, there is a full rainbow of colors to choose from.  Along with this wide selection you will also find a full color range of Simply Sheer Mist, the same mist as Glimmer Mist, but with no Glimmer.
Tattered Angels Baseboard Mist “Sky” & “Sandy Beach
Very similar to Glimmer Mist, but with two big distinctions, Baseboard Mist does not have any mica, just pure color and it is a bit more translucent than Glimmer Mist.  Tattered Angels also offers a more opaque mist like Baseboard with the glimmer and that is Chalkboard Mist.

Step 1:  You first off all need to prep your surface with gesso and let it dry (I use a heater). This will allow your wet mediums to blend and not go trough the surface (in this case a white White Thickstock (140# paper that is amazing to work with). Spray on a LOT of water on your paper, and then start adding the mists. You can dribble, splatter and spay. Bend the paper and let the paint run. Add more water etc. It´s just no limits to what you can do.

Step 2:  When everything has dry you can add stamping, decorations and your photo. I layered scrap papers from 7gypises Wanderlustand Ordre du Jour to layer under my photo.


I have entered the layout for this months challenge at ScrapMuch? (colors used starry night, gold, icy blue, slush). A click on the picture below will take you to the challenge post.


I have used products from Canavas Corp Brands (all wet mediums and papers), IndigoBlue (all stamps), Scrapiniec (chipboard), American Crafts & Doodlebug (alpha stickers).
