A case of a texture paste-masking-misting-technique gone awry..



Lunar new year 2012

So this was a case of a texture paste-masking-misting-technique gone awry....[could you even tell that they were supposed to be butterflies? *LOL* ]... I had to embrace my inner Tim Gunn and "Make it work!" by turning it into an abstract design.. *Did it work?*



 I used the sketch from Studio Calico and was inspired by the challenge at ScrapFIT.  [Photos: My dad with my niece and nephew #2]

Supplies: Studio Calico patterned papers and stickers, SRM stickers, The twinery twine, Maya mists, Heidi Swapp mask, Basic Grey brads, texture paste, buttons, bottle cap.

Yes it most certainly did. I like the gradient from orange to green- I've tried that combo with disastrous results now I see what I could have done to make it work. LOVE the buttons border- that little bear one is awesome. Beautiful page as always!! I really admire how you can control multi media chaos in your projects- it's incredibly inspiring!
