Glimmer Mist Technique / Giveaway

I wanted to share with you one of the new techniques Wendy taught me at Memory Trends.. so as she showed me , I took photos of each of the steps. I think one of the things I think is the coolest about Glimmer Mist.. (other than the cool look of it) is the ways you can make the most of it. NO WASTE! It's water based, so just by re hydrating it with a couple of spritzes of water.... you can create even more.

I've showed you before how to use stencils with Glimmer Mist... we had just done a demo doing the same thing , only with this brass embossing plate. ( Basically just laying down your stencil and lightly spritzing over it a few times, and then pick up the stencil and Wah la... your ready to go again.

Then Wendy showed me how you could take the brass embossing plate with the residue left from the previous sprayings, and spritz it with water... and Ta Da... your ready to go again!

So you can get the beautiful pattern of the positive and the negative of the stencil.







You just spritz the stencil with water and then turn if over onto your project.


I thought it was cool, the way she took her finger and rubbed ink around in some of the openings in the design of the stencil for more interest

Once that was finished and she lifted the stencil up, she then spritz on another color onto the tag..overall.. to let the colors blend.


Like I said.. it's water based, so you can added and add, drying with a heat gun as you go... letting the colors blend... and you can never over do. If you don't like the look you've achieved... just add another color and redo. One thing I did find out with all the demoing I did those days.. is some times the ones I didn't think I was going to like , or thought I messed up.. turned out the best, and ended up being my favorites.




The more you add color the more you can blend. When spritzing lighting , you can just let it air dry.. but when adding a number of colors one on top of the other, or really saturating your paper.. using a heat gun, really speeds things up. ( I really liked the way I could use the air from the head gun to manipulate where I wanted the "pooled"ink to go)




We were working on a Teflon craft mat, so see that excess Glimmer Mist there on the mat? Well Wendy showed me how to use that also. She added color to the edges of the tag buy dragging them through it , like shown below.

(Remember if whats on the mat is dry.. just spritz a bit of water on it.. and it's ready to go again)


For showing this for the step by step, we've only used two colors here, but you can see how you can add as you go. You can come up with some pretty cool effects by letting the colors bleed and blend.


Okay.. there you go.. making the most of your Glimmer Mist... technique #1. lol Glimmer Mist has a blog how HERE

So so pretty Vicki...I love that you can't do it wrong...or so it seems. I have not used my brass stencils, and I have a bunch of them....so I am going to play. I too LOVE that mat....it is the best, and I love that "dragging" technique. Thanks for all the tips, now I am going to have to get some more colors so I can be more adventuresome.

I love your paper craft art. Maybe it's the way you do all the layering, and I really like the sewing that you do to add more texture. The glitter mist looks wonderful, too. You've got me going through my brass embossing stencils, now :-) Thanks for your ideas and tips! PattieWack

I finally got some GlimmerMist after seeing it used so many times on your blog. This stuff rocks! My fave is the Autumn Leaves color. I have been spraying every project, every silk flower, scrap peice of paper... I would spray my kids and husband too, if they would only hold still long enough.

Aaah, Nebraska! I may be living in Paradise now but I can't wait until my return to the Husker state. :)

I've so enjoyed your blog. Found it on the TA site and am so inspired to do more with my Glimmer Mists. Just ordered a bunch new colors. Yum.

I'll be reading more of your blog, so keep the inspiration coming.

peace!

Love your tips and ideas using Glimmer mist. We have been experimenting with glimmer mists and got a great look using snowflakes punched from cardstock laid out on the paper as a stencil. The paper turns out great with the stencil look and the snowflakes are beautiful to use as an embellishment.

I just grabbed a couple of bottles of GM today in anticipation of making Christmas gifts... but I really wanted to grab up the whole display and all of the yummy colors!! 'Suppose that now I should learn to use them, I guess. :-)
