maya mist tutorial

If you're visiting my blog from Method Playground, take a look at the video below to see how I created this layout using the Maya Mists. If you haven't been to Method Playground yet, go now! It's a great challenge site that gets you out of your comfort zone and challenges you to use new products (and some old products) in different ways.



Supplies: Patterned Paper (Creative Imaginations, Sassafras, Love Elsie); Lace Paper (KI Memories); Paint (Maya Mists Red & Orange); Stamps (AE for Technique Tuesday); Rip Strips (Studio Calico); Stickers (October Afternoon); Chipboard (Bazzill, Maya Road; Heidi Swapp); Pen (American Crafts); Ink (Tsukineko)


On a sidenote, all Maya Mists are available for purchase in the Studio Calico shop and they ship free with your kit!
Oh, and the winner of the previous Method Playground challenge created an awesome layout with stitching. It's definitely worth a looksie.

I have always loved maya mists (I recently discovered them at my LSS, and am addicted now), and your tutorial was great! As simple as some of those ideas were, I never once thought to use chipboard letters or words as a mask! How easy! Thanks for sharing your tips with us! =)

You know April, I'm just beginning the mist journey and find I'm more inclined to use the matte mist rather than the glimmer mist. With that said, I'm so glad to have run into your video tutorial today in demonstrating various ways to use the mist. I'm still very new in experimenting with the product, though hope to master it at some point in the future! Thanks for this - lovely!
