In her second adventure, Glitter Girl tackles the mists of magnitude, an issue currently being discussed here on the General Scrapbooking message board at Two Peas.

This adventure takes her through the differences in various mist and spray product lines, including which white sprays show up on black cardstock, and on to create two scrapbook pages with an assortment of misting techniques.

On this page, the obvious ideas of spraying the background and splattering bigger drops of ink, but also my favourite thing about cream coloured mist, which is painting a white-based sticker cream to match another collection. In this case, that means BasicGrey stickers (which are printed on white) can match with October Afternoon stickers (printed on cream) and act as if they always existed in harmony. This minor concept makes me happier than I can explain.

And a second page this week, to demonstrate how white mist can be particularly useful with patterned papers, and because I’m not ready to put that snowflake punch away with the Christmas decorations!

Any more ideas for mists you would like to share? Please do! Glitter Girl would love to hear from you in the comments. And she challenges you to share a layout or a project with your favourite brand of mist in the gallery this week.

Onward, covered in glitter, my dear scrapbookers!
adventures of glitter girl

The Adventures of Glitter Girl is a weekly series on Two Peas in a Bucket, and goes live every Wednesday. I’ll share each adventure here shortly after that. I hope you enjoy her quests for crafting happiness, and if you ever have a scrapbooking dilemma yourself, you can always call her to action on the message board.

    I viewed this over at Two Peas and just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you! I may be the last scrapper on the planet to not own a single mist, but think I’m getting ready to take the plunge, starting with something white. Your video was just the info I needed!

  2. Amanda Says:

    Not the last Sue, as I don’t have any either. I think that may change before too long. Thank you for the demo Glitter Girl.

  3. Lisa-Jane Johnson Says:

    Great video, is that The Boy making a voice appearance? I can never get enough spots to come off when I tap the tube / brush etc but I will persevere!

  4. Sharon Hunt Says:

    Thank you for another wonderful, informative, and fun video!I love your continued dedication to education, quality, creativity, and general love of crafting! Keep up the great work!

    Great video and very informative ! As hardly any of these products are readily available here in SA, it makes it so much easier to decide what to buy when I order from 2 Peas !

  6. Carol West Says:

    Thank you Glitter Girl! You have helped solve the Mist-ery of the many mist out there and what we are to do with them. I definitely like the idea of painting white stickers with Mr Huey Cream to have them match cream colored stickers.

    Fun helpful video

    Love watching your videos, Shimelle!

    I have a question! I’ve always used Tattered Angels mists and I finally branched out and bought the white Mister Huey. I LOVED it. But then a month later I went to put my projects away and noticed an enormous amount of white powder getting all over my hands from my projects. So I touched the mist on the project and it hasn’t really completely soaked in all this time.

    Is that how the Mister Hueys are?

    I kinda have a problem with that and I’m hoping maybe something is weird about my bottle…?

    Thanks for the tip on taking the sticky off of masking letters! Like your new series! Ps thanks for posting here. It is so much easier to view than on two peas.

    Now see if I had watched this before the mess that was this afternoon I wouldn’t necessarily have gotten into such a pickle and have fingers that I think may be permanently stained!!!
    Loved the video x

  11. Robin Says:

    LOVE these layouts! And the tutorial on the many ways to use mists! I own several, but haven’t played with them lately, now I’m re-inspired! THANKS! LOVE the videos too, btw!
