Ok.. now to get to the page that I created last night. I recently signed up for the Technique Tuesday: Studio AE Membership because I loved July's stamp set, and had the perfect pictures to go with them!
After pulling out the pictures and the stamp set I knew that I wanted to play with my glimmer mist. So I pulled out a sheet of white cardstock that has a resist (not sure what company.. it was purchased at Archivers), cut a third of it off and started spraying. I knew how I wanted my pictures laid out, and had a general idea of where the stamps were going to go. I sprayed some scrap white CS with glimmer mist for the title block and accent strips, stamped with Staz-On, and glued/ stapled everything on.
After everything was done I thought that the page seemed a little unbalanced, and it needed more blue on the top left. I grabbed a scrap of CS (that I had test stamped on) and was moving the Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch around on the scrap trying to find a large enough white spot to punch out when I moved it over the words "the Simple" and thought that it was brilliant! Looking at it now, I know that I have seen this technique before somewhere, probably on Ali's blog, but at the time it was completely original. I sprayed the butterfly with more of the blue glimmer mist (I will come back with the actual glimmer mist colors that I used), positioned it over the title text and knew that my page was complete!
