I hope everyone had a wonderful Independence Day weekend. We watched some fireworks and just had a nice, relaxing couple of days.
Last week I decided to get out my Glimmer Mists and some faux mulberry paper and just play a bit, to see what I could come up with. What’s nice about these sprays is that it’s so easy to get really nice color combinations. The lighter, pastel colors seem to work best for this, I think. Here is how the paper started out:
Pretty white paper with some gold and silver speckles. It’s a smoother texture that regular mulberry paper but you can see the threads that run through it. The paper is really lightweight, too. This is what it looks like after a little bit of spraying with Glimmer Mist.

I love that stuff! There are such beautiful colors with so much shimmery goodness. I am really pleased with the way these turned out. As always, they are much prettier in person. It’s hard to get a good representation of the color variations with my camera and the shimmer is almost impossible to photograph. I made several others but the colors were so subtle that they didn’t show up well in photos at all. I did make a couple of cards with these papers and will be posting those later in the week.
Thanks for stopping by.
