Misting & Inking with Lynn

Good Morning Everyone! It's Practical Scrapper Lynn this morning to show you a few projects that I've used some inking and misting techniques on. I find ink really adds definition to your patterned paper or cardstock. I always think it makes a layout "pop" off the page. With a little distressing and ink, you have a vintage page in no time. Misting is another fun thing I love to do. Using stencils or masks you can add a little touch of something to your background. There are so many different products on the market today to try.  So go ahead and have some fun! 

 On this layout I used flower stencil and my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I started with just a little corner to add a "little something" and before I knew it, the whole background was done!

 For this layout I again misted some flowers on my winter layout. Just a touch here and there added some color. I distressed and inked my layers and ribbon for that little bit of "shabby"

For this one I used my ink pad and a dauber to do a chicken wire background. I didn't want to spray all of my paper, so I just used my Tim Holtz Distress Ink and daubed all the little hexagons for a softer look. By the end of the day I'm usually covered in ink, sparkles and some stickers, but what I've learned is...Baby Wipes are the perfect thing to clean up with!! 
So off I go to play with my sprays, so I hope you all have a Scrap Happy Day!
