How to make your own spray mists from acrylic paint....

Over the past number of months I've tried to make my own color and glimmer mists using acrylic paint or hobby paint.

To my disappointment I've had to throw out quite a few mist bottles because the nosell clogged up.

I've been using alcohol to dilute as well as water. I know a lot of people swear by using alcohol, but to my humble experience having used both alcohol based mists and water miste on projects at the same time the results haven't been as good as if I only used alcohol or water solely.

Wanting to experiment on how to avoid clogging up the nosell I've found a solution that works great... by accident I filled my mist bottle with hot water, then added the paint, a glass bead went in there too closed it and gave it a good shake. The hot water dilutes the paint so much easier than when using cold and the bead is just an extra help. 

After the good shake I added Perfect Pearl and shaked it once more..... 😃

I now have the most amazing color- and glimmer mists at the fraction of the price of the original ones.

I have been using 2 oz bottles. 

For my Danish readers of my blog I buy my bottles: i Tiger hvor de sælger pakker med 3 stk.  for 10kr. De er absolut fortrindelige.

Awesome and amazing news.....!!!!

I have got a job.... after 13 months of unemployment I'm back in the game...So happy!

It means not feeling bad for spending time at my craft table thinking I should write job applications instead.

A huge load has been removed from my shoulders.... I am so blessed.

Organza flowers - tutorial will follow

In my search on how to create easy and inexpensive flowers for my creations I was browsing through YouTube.

There are a lot of tutorials where you need a lit candle and a bucket of water... Just in case.

Now... I happen to know the combo of me and fire....not good!! 

Then I thought.... Why not try using my heat gun.....??

This is the results.....

Cute or not...? ;-)

Can't wait to show you how... Until can try free

Album for a honeymoon - gift

Attented a wedding yesterday. A union of two beautiful young people such a wonderful occasion to witness. Love is grand.

As a part of their gift I created a 6 x 6 album for their honeymoon pictures. I used the Bo Bunny Weekend Market papers. There are 8 pages in the album with room for a lot of journaling and pictures.
I was so lucky to emphasize one of the colors of the wedding in the flowers on the cover: Turquoise.

It was so fun to make and I'll soon make one for my self:-)

A custom order of this album will cost: 295 DKK + shipping
