Gotta love Glimmer Mist!

This month's Therapy kit includes a bottle of Glimmer Mist in Midnight Blue and a package of Glimmer Screens. Glimmer Mist is a bottle of colored liquid that mists when sprayed and leaves a shimmer on surfaces when it dries. The screens are essentially masks, that will leave the negative of an image.
So how do you use them?
Well, get ready to get artsy and have some fun!!

Start off by covering your work surface, since the mist will land beyond your page. (It's easy to clean up, though, since it's water soluble.)
Choose which screen you want and decide where you want to place your image.
I used a repositionable adhesive to secure my screen to the page.
Then you spray! How close you spray toward the paper determines how large the droplets are. Spraying close to your paper gives you large drops that add a spattered effect to the color.
Once sprayed, set the page aside to dry. It dries rather quickly, but I've been known to dab mine with a paper towel or give a quick blast with my heat gun. (Just be sure to take the screens off first - you don't want to warp them!)

Once dry, you can design and embellish your page as desired!
Here's a page I made with this month's kit:



Sandi created this beautiful card using her lace tablecloth as a screen:



These are just the tip of the iceberg. Have fun with it and be sure to post your Glimmer Mist projects in the gallery.
