Try some misting today!

A quick & easy way to create a fun background is through misting. It is so much fun to work with and so very addicting! To create my "summer" clouds. I simply handcut some fluffy clouds out of scrap pieces of thin chipboard...

Placed them randomly on the cardstock...

{I use a cardboard box to contain the mist from going everywhere!}

And mist away...

Next, the grass... I used a trim from the Artsy Urban - Felt Die Cut Borders...


I cut the piece of trim in half and layered them to even it out a bit...

I fluffed it up and tore it a bit to make it look a bit more "real"...

add embellishments...

Photobucket


do some inking on the clouds to make them "pop"...

and your layouts complete!
