Getting Messy with Masks, Mists, and Splatters

Happy Monday, Practical Scrappers!  Remember how fun (and messy) fingerpainting was when you were a child?  Well today, our On Trend team is showing you the grown-up equivalent of finger-painting fun to create beautiful layouts.  How?  By getting down and dirty with masks, mists, and splatters!   
Practical Scrapper Wendi Robinson used gesso over her mask.  She then created a second layer by misting over her mask.
Practical Scrapper Mary Pat applied her mists onto a Studio Calico mask to create the large sunburst on her layout.

Practical Scrapper Jenn C used digital splatters on her layout to create a water effect!

Practical Scrapper Charissa used white mists over a triangle mask to create a subtle background on her page.  She then splattered an iridescent mist to add a water droplet look across the layout.

Practical Scrapper Julie used modeling paste with her mask to add dimension to her layout.  She then misted her layout with Ranger dylusion ink.

Practical Scrapper Caz Hancock used a Studio Calico mask to make her back ground.  She achieved her colour by mixing an iridescent medium with silver metallic Martha Stewart paint. She then added spatters using her Mister Huey mists from Studio Calico.

Practical Scrapper Malika Kelly used a mask and two different-colored mists.  Then she splattered drops of ink in a third color onto her layout.

Practical Scrapper Audrey Yeager used a mix of watered down mists and dripped them from a sponge brush onto her page.

 Practical Scrapper Nicole Laha went crazy with ink splatters to create the appearance of rain. She also sprayed a bit of mist onto a craft mat, using a paint brush to pick up the ink and color in the stamped image.

Practical Scrapper Danielle de Konink applied a yellow mist to a confetti mask by The Crafter's Workshop to create the background of this layout. This mask has splatter and heart shapes.

Practical Scrapper Marcia Dehn-Nix applied distress ink to jar lids and bottle caps and stamped rings on her background. The grass background was also stamped using the same distress ink. Then she splattered misting spray by uncapping the spray bottle and flicking the ink off of the plastic tube.

Practical Scrapper Lanette used Dylusion  mist with a mask to create her background.  She then added a few splatters to accent the page.
