I'm a Glimmer-Misting Fool!

I took a Glimmer Mist Mini-Album Workshop at Archiver's yesterday with my friends Anne, Christina and Lynn, and boy did we have fun! I've done some misting, but I was looking to learn some new tips and tricks and I sure did! Here's the mini-album we made...
We used Tattered Angels Embossed Chipboard Tiles, and the three colors of mist you see in the photo - moonlight, wheatfields, and coffee shop. I am completely enamored with the mist colors - you can't tell in the photo, but the Wheatfields color has a subtle green twinkle to it that is just beautiful! The inside pages of the album each have a unique design to them - I will share the rest when I finish the album.

So, they had a special deal going where if you buy two mists, you get a free gift, so I purchased these two FABULOUS colors...

The first one is called marshmallow, and I love it because it's opaque! I love the idea of being able to spray it on a dark color...

and this one!!!!!! How could I resist - it's called RAVEN!!! The color is to die for - it is black with an irridescent purple sheen - just like a raven's wing....

and the free gift was a glimmer screen (mask) and this beautiful color of mist called Seaglass...

Here's a test sample I sprayed of all three together. Isn't it a pretty color combo?

Then, after the class we stayed and cropped! I worked on my Honeymoon Two Journal (2008) - The Nashville/Smokey Mountains/Dollywood Adventure. I got phase two (out of about four phases) done, which felt great! Here's a sneak peek. The cover is an 8 x 10 postcard of Miss Dolly herself...

While I had my camera out this morning, I decided to take a few portraits of Willie, who was looking quite handsome...

The left side...

the right side...

and a full-on portrait...

Which reminds me, I need to take that blue sticky note off of my cabinet door - LOL.

The "Say Hey" slideshow is up at Scrapping The Music! Check it out - there are 20 layouts this week and they are ROCKIN! And don't forget to check back tonite! The new song will be up and it's gonna be fun!

I'm off for a day of cozy winter scrapping with the cats. That is bliss if you ask me!

Have a great Sunday and I will see you tomorrow! Thanks for visiting!
