Life gets very hetic for me and my minutes turn into days and weeks. These layouts should have been posted a month ago, but I am just getting around to it. So today we are back blogging. Just pretend that this post is back about a month ago. HAHAHAHA.
Very fun layouts we did last month. There are a few tips and tricks that I will explain so stay with me here. Some of the layouts were inspired by my upline and friend Karen Pedersen and Magic How-To book. Layout 2 Karen had made and posted and I just loved it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
The snow flakes were textured using the glimmer mist technique. See below for making glimmer mist.

GLIMMER MIST TECHNIQUE:
You will love this technique. It makes your images very shimmery and they really pop. Check back later and I will post this on my tutorial page at the top of my blog. For now this is all you do.
Equal parts of pearl paint and rubbing alcohol. Mix in a spray bottle or use our spray pen. You can add reinker to color the glimmer mist if you choose. Spray your image (in this case we sprayed the snowflakes) Let dry and you have a shimmery snowflake. You can add some prisma glitter to really make them sparkle if you wish.
You will want so clean your sprayer immediately after you spritz your images to prevent the sprayer from clogging. The paint tends to really clog your sprayer. I get everything ready spray all flakes and then wash my spray pen out really good.
