Misting Is a Little Scary

When I see them online, I love layouts where people have used the different spray ink products to create a background, to spatter, to create drips . . . . .I've acquired a dozen or so bottles, but I'm a chicken.  What if I don't like how it turns out. 

Yesterday I started a new album for my son's freshman year in high school.  And I decided I was going to bite the bullet and use some of that product sitting in a drawer in my scrap room.  Here's what I came up with.

It was surprisingly simple to put together and created a great look.  I started with a piece of white woodgrain cardstock and added a couple of pages I tore from an old book I bought at a garage sale (also a first for me).  Then I cut a mask using my cricut and a file of his school logo (which the school provided).  I used the mask and some Mr. Huey's to add the school name to the bottom of the cardstock, overlapping the book pages.  I cut the word "freshman" with my cricut and pasted that over the school logo.  After that it was really quick - I added a vellum scrap, a school picture and a few embellishments. 

It looks like nothing else I've done and provides a great start to the album. And I feel like I've really accomplished something.

So try something new on your pages today.  It will make a great Tuesday!
