Prima + Glimmer Mist = Match Made in Heaven

Here is my latest layout. I was inspired by some Prima paper that I had bought a while back. I cut it in half and turned it sideways so that the frilly edge was on the side. I then used Glimmer Mist to spray the other three sides. I also sprayed the butterfly that you see on the right page using a screen and Glimmer Mist. I enjoyed working on this layout... I normally make my two page layouts more similar than this, but I am constantly trying to push myself to try new things.

These were once white Prima flowers... Glimmer Mist changed all of that! The crystals you see are from 7 Gypsies. I originally had it hanging straight down, but changed it to loop back up.
Don't be afraid to try things one way on your layouts... you can always go back and change it... that is what is so wonderful! Move a picture, layer up some flowers or other embellishments, etc... the worst that can happen is you start over, which is rarely... the best thing: you try something & absolutely love it!!!
Here is a close up of the butterfly. I laid the mask down and just sprayed. Using masks is very easy and the finish product packs such a punch! I did this right on top of my pattern paper. Using the Glimmer Mist you can still see the design of the paper. Try spraying a light color first, than laying your mask down and spraying with a darker color. Or what about starting with one color and working your way up the mask with other colors??? So many possibilities! Play!

Here is a little accent that I did that you really don't notice until you look... I took Distressed Crackle Paint in Rock Candy and just highlighted the word "love". If there are areas on your patterned paper that you just love try emphasizing them with things such as the Rock Candy Crackle Paint, Glossy Accents, or what about a bling frame???
For my journaling I used a frame that I cut from my Silhouette. I rotated the pieces so that they were not straight and so that they did not line up. An embellishment might be shown one way, but who says that you can't shake things up a bit?
