Don't you love how Scraptastic Club sometimes includes mists as an extra goody when you subscribe to the kits? I know I do! Recently, I got bored with using my mists in the same old ways so I tried something new. Of course, I'd love to share the technique with you all.
Spraying is fun and flicking mist from the sprayer is great BUT... Did you know about stamping with mist? If not, you're in luck. Check out my first (EVER) video tutorial!
This is the layout that I made with the stamped cardstock. I used some old Studio Calico veneer stars as a template to cut the stamped stars. This page is about my Brandon's first day of school. I wasn't planning to send him to school until he was ready for Kindergarten, but his pediatrician recommended that he go to preschool for socialization and speech help. I took the photo below on the day that he headed in for testing. He was just so small and the school seemed SO big.
I used one lone wood veneer boy figure to match Brandon in the photo. I adhered one of the journal spots as a mat and I popped the star up with a foam dot. I finished it off with an enamel dot.
I loved the idea of using the Hello tag as part of the title. The full title reads "Hello My Name Is Big Boy". Sigh. I just wish he would stay little. I'm sure I'm not the only Mom that feels that way.
I used the number 1 die cut because it was his first day. The life tag was used because a lot of life is learning to let your kids grow up and be independent. Whether you like it or not! You can see the stamping a lot better on this larger star. I had a blast with that technique. I love making messes!
I really hope that you enjoyed the video tutorial. All of the supplies on this page came from the Scraptastic Club September “Noted” kit, add on, and stamp add on. My layout design was inspired by a sketch from Liz Chidester.
