Hi there everyone, Mou Saha here.
This month, I wanted to try a fun little technique of misting on kraft-based patterned paper.
• Hambly 12" x 12" Metallic Silver Ink on Kraft Textured Paper
• Hambly 12'' x12'' Metallic Gold Ink on Lagoon Blue Metallic Paper
• Hambly 5" x 8" Clear Sticker Sheet Alphabet/Woodgrain
• Hambly Washi Tape – Yellow-Lime Woodgrain, Gray Doily, and Black Floral
• Strips of Hambly 12" x 12" Overlays- Antique White Brocade Blossom and Lime Green 2 Dandelions
• Ivory cardstock
• Alphabet stencil
• Dark Grey Spray Mist
• Mini alphabet stickers
• Paper towel
The technique is super simple. I worked on a small piece, but you can alter a whole background with this technique.
• Spray mist on a piece of textured kraft paper. Make sure to protect your work surface first.
• Wipe off immediately with a dry paper towel. The paper readily soaks in the ink, so work gently to keep it from tearing. Repeat for more visual dimension. The silver image design acts as a mild resist for the mist.
• Lay an alphabet stencil down on the ivory cardstock and spray with the same mist. Layer the misted piece on top.
I chose a dark grey mist to allow the silver design to pop up. It also helped my photo with the light details stand out on a light background and kinda matched the iron scrollwork on the dark doorway in the photo.
Attach photo. Add strips of overlays in green and antique white and secure them in place with pieces of washi tape. Add title and journaling and a butterfly punched out of Lagoon Blue Metallic paper.
Enjoy experimenting with the various Hambly screen printed papers and spray mists!
