misty geisha folder

The new challenge at Gingersnap Creations is mists.
I really like the look of mists, but since I don't
have much in the way of the new mist products--a
couple of homemade concoctions--I usually just
use spray paint.

We have a LOT of spray paint. Think every color
of the rainbow, plus metallics.

ANYWAY, you can really see the shimmery, misty
outline of (yes, again--remember "this card"?) my
favorite plastic doily in this pic:



This is a stitched skinny holder folder, going along
with the general Far East GSC theme this month, using
Basic Grey paper, distress inks, and embellishments.
The challenges--like the misting--do NOT have to go
along with the Far East theme, I just tend to get a
little carried away sometimes . . .

Done any misting lately? Come join the challenge
at Gingersnap Creations
; I'd love to stop by and
take a peek!

Love the misting, but have trouble keeping it confined. I have one store bought mister and several homemade concoctions - 30 drops reinker to 1 Walmart makeup mister bottle of water. Is that the formula you use?

Hi Trisha,

So glad to see the obvious Christian witness on your page. We are American missionaries to Ukraine and I home schooled also. I'm following you here now and hope you will follow on my blog as well. You do lovely work and I'm proud of you for doing it even with 4 kids and homeschooling.
Blessings,
