We are so excited about all the fabulous items in store that we wanted to share with you how we use them on our projects!

Now to show you MY favorite things!!!!
I LOVE using the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays from Frosted Designs!!! They are truly sooo much fun to work with!!!! So, I created a a page to show you that mists are NOT just for you paper!!!! I also used the March Sketch challenge over at Creative Embellishments (inspired by the floating petals to the left of their inspiration page!), AS WELL as some of their FABULOUS chipboard on my page!
Here's a look:
I started with the Authentique "Flourish" Collection in the store and some layering. I used the Circle Template (Another one of my FAVS!) and some of the sprays, as well as various inks, to create the background. I added some layers of gesso over areas for a more "muted" tone. Then, I used the Tim Holtz "Dot Fade" stencil from last month's kit and some molding paste colored with Lindy's Magicals to finish my background effects!
I layered on tons of flowers and embellishments, applying gesso and the mists for added color! The round metal buttons were coated with gesso, then misted with LSG sprays until I achieved my desired colors!
I added Creative Embellishments chipboard behind my photo mats that was embossed with the Tim Holtz Black distress powder in this month's kit!
I finished with some chipboard by 7 Gypsies that I clear embossed with a polka dot stamp by Stampin Up! and some versamark ink. I coated it generously with Lindy's Mist for a beautiful, rich teal color!!!!!
