Misting on your page by Rachael...How did I do that

I wanted to share with you how I created the misted background on my page All Grown Up...

First I used a dinner plate to create a mask using a sheet of cardstock, once I had cut it out I stuck it onto my background paper using repositional herma.

I carefully misted the page blotting off any excess using kitchen towel.

Once that had thoroughly dried I used the dinner plate to draw a guide line for some hand stitching...

and then built my page up.

I used the same technique for the photo on the layout. I created a mask using cardstock to cover the centre of the photo, this time I didn't stick it down but held it firmly in place while I misted over the photo. Once that had thoroughly dried I added some machine stitching around the edges.
