Misting and white space

In a few weeks I will be teaching a misting class at my LSS and I have been working on some projects that we are going to do in class.  I got a jumpstart on some of the pages that we are going to do during the last Cocoa Daisy crop.  We are going to be using Studio Calico Take Note and lots of SC mists and stencils, along with stencils from The Crafter's Workshop.

I really wanted to use a lot of stencils and some different forms of misting on my page.  I layered the ampersand and the reverse chicken wire stencils and sprayed with green and grey mists.  I love the negative space that a stencil creates.  You can see more negative space layouts at Practical Scrappers on yesterdays post.

Of course there is fussy cutting.  And I wanted a slightly bigger white flower, so I punched some white cardstock with the large lace flower punch I have and backed it with some woodgrain paper and it looks like it came off the same sheet at the others!  You can also see I layered a bit of vellum behind my photo, too.

I love how the corner of this page misted with the chevron and the chicken wire overlapping!  The heart is also from a TCW stencil.

I just finished up a few more layouts that we will be doing in my misting class and I can't wait to show you!

Wow, this is wonderful! I love the misted background, but especially love the way you used the chevron and chicken wire patterns and overlapped them!
