Misty About KEITH

We're getting a little Misty over at Cut It Up.  No, we're not sad; we're using sprays and mists on our projects!  What's more fun than getting messy and adding some shimmer to our lives!

Now, I do have to admit, I did get a little misty (as in sentimental) while working on this LO.  This is my son when he was a Sr in HS.  Tonight is his college graduation; his dad and I couldn't be prouder! Due to Keith's struggle with ASD, we were told he would never graduate HS; but those doctors/counselors didn't know us very well!  We jumped into a journey we never expected and we changed our lives  drastically, but it was all worth it.  Tonight we celebrate!

Ah, but I have digressed from the actual intent of this post..........Mists, sprays and die cuts.

Since a picture is worth 1,000 words, I'll explain my LO using pics.  A material list follows at the end.

I used Prima Color Bloom
Tea Stain to spray around
the right side of the pic.
I also put a few drops down the
bottom right side.
I 'mopped up' the excess spray with
the natural colored twine to darken
it so it would be more visible
in my LO.
Stencil is made from Acetate Alternative cut from the Artbooking Cartridge; I used Bo Bunny Bronze Spray over the stencil.
