Playing with mists on an ATC

Today was spend doing errands in preparation for my crop on National Scrapbooking day this Saturday.
Can you tell I am excited about it ;)

Last Friday I decided to make a swatch of all my mists so I know how they would look on paper.
It is hard to see the real colour in the bottles.
I punched out these tabs with my punch and started spraying.
Kristy thought it looked like a lot of fun, so she took over.
But that was okay, as I used my label maker to write the colours and company who makes them on the back of each tag.

So not much creating was done by me today.
But while Wayne and I watched Resident Evil, I decided to play with my mists.
I am still playing with Spring-like colours.
I have this boot box that I use for spraying my mists…looks pretty doesn't it ;)

Now this looks Springy….doesn't it?
Because I am using water based inks, I don't want them to make my stamping bleed, so I am using Archival ink.

So far I really like the background.
I have made a few ATC's and I like how the background looks, but after that it seems to go down hill, lol.
I have a bit of an idea on what I want to do with this one….lets hope it looks as good as it does in my mind ;)

I hope you all had a very creative Monday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Like all your misting. I like the spring colors and look forward to seeing the final project. Have a great week!

  2. Ooooh, very pretty!
    I hope you have a great time at your crop.
    I never seem to be able to actually scrapbook on NSD (lol)

  3. Gorgeous! Love the misty colours...that is a great idea to make the tag sampler!

  4. Lovely colours! I wish mists were not so pricey...

  5. I only have a few sprays, and I don't really use them. I think I will have to play with them too. :)

  6. What gorgeous colours! It all looks so pretty x

  7. Great idea! I should do this with my sprays

  8. oooh do i love the mixing of the colors and that background stamp!

  9. Really pretty so far, Tracy, I'm sure it'll turn out the way you're envisioning it! :)

  10. what a great idea with the swatches, you are so organized (or ocd) Beautiful background and great stamp. Have fun at your crop.

  11. That background looks fabulous, Tracy! Great idea to have swatches of your mists! :o)

  12. Very cool idea to make a swatch of your mists. So smart. I need to do this! :)

  13. This looks really cool. I really like your mist colors, and the box you spray them in - its so pretty!

    Making the mist tags was a good idea - I always hate when I think a color looks one way and then it looks different!

    Enjoy your crop on Saturday! I can't wait to see pictures!!
