Are you ready for another installment of Trend Watch!? This week’s focus is mist. Mist can be used in such a wide variety of ways, from title work to simple paint accents to a full page. The Lilypad shop has many different takes on mist; you can shop them in the Trend Watch – Mist category at 20% off this week.
If you’re new to mist, one of the easiest ways to use it on your pages is in title work. Mist alphas can add a touch of artsy flair or a fun pop of color on your layout. Other ideas include using an alpha as a monogram on a journaling card or using letters randomly at the edge of your page for a fun misted border.
Mists also make the perfect colorful anchor in your page composition. Layer your photos and other elements over mixed sprays for a dramatic focal point. On the other hand, you can add a small touch of misting to your pages to add a little detail. Mist is also useful in building a cohesive color palette on your pages. The little sprays of color can unite the other elements on your layout.
If you’re ready to kick up the misting on your layouts, consider a full page mist. Misted overlays allow you to spray bold or subtle pattern onto your background. It’s an awesome effect! Begin your page with a misted paper for an instant hand-crafted look. You can also mist over large photos or add many layers of misting for more of an art journaling feel. The possibilities are endless!
We’re excited to see how YOU use mist on your pages! Do you have a special misting technique that you want to share? Hop over and participate in the Trend Watch – Mist weekly challenge in the forum for the chance at a $5 store coupon. If you need some mist products to get you started, remember the entire Trend Watch – Mist category is 20% off all week.
