Happy National Scrapbooking Day!!

Good Morning everyone!! I hope you're planning some serious crafting this weekend! I know I am!! It's National Scrapbooking Day and you'll definitely want to head over to the Frosted Designs blog for their fabulous online crop!  They will be hosting hourly challenges, games and of course some goodies!!  You'll also want to stop by the Frosted Designs Facebook Page for even more scrappy challenges!! 

I created this layout for my challenge over at the Frosted Designs Facebook Page: The challenge: Mists, Inks, Stains, Paints...Get Messy!! I've been on a serious ink kick these days, and I just love splattering and misting on my layouts. There's so many different ways you can use your mists and paints too. 

I used a mist from Lindy's Stamp Gang and some Distress Inks on that fabulous bird cage. The two canvas flowers I made, I also used Distress Ink on, and I sprayed some of Lindy's mist on the teeny flower too! I also used some Distress Inks to colour the cheesecloth that's poking out from behind the newsprinty paper!

I misted my background with Glimmer Mist, then I watered down a little black paint and splattered it on too! 

So there you have it!! Mask it, mist it, splatter it, or paint it! Just get messy and have fun!!  You have until Monday at Midnight Central Standard Time to get your projects uploaded to the Facebook page!! 

Happy Crafting Everyone!!

I have such a love hate relationships with splattering inks and making drips with paint, I love the look of them but I am such a control freak that I worry it to death trying to get them to land or run just where I want them to! lol Your LO is so cute and I love how the splatters went! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :) Thanks for a fun challenge!
