Welcome to the Sweet Peach Crop Shop Blog Hop

Hopefully you have arrived from http://www.sweetpeachcropshop.com/blog/. If not you need to start there and then go down the list of all of us designers. We all have different techniques we would like to share with you today. Mine today is a misting technique, I chose this one.....because in this months kit you get a bottle of Glimmer Mist spray ~ (Creme de Rose). First I started by taking a piece of The Girls Paperie ( mixed dots ) which is in the kit for this month and cutting a 4 1/2 x 12 piece this I will use for my template for misting.I also randomly cut out some of the circles, now since I was going to reuse those circles I used my Xacto Knife since I don't have a circle punch that size.

Now lay the paper on top of your plain cardstock anywhere you want the circles to show up on your cardstock, that is the beauty of this, you can move it around and have 2 or 10 circles.
The only thing left to do is start spritzing, use a little or use a lot. It just depends on your preference.
Here is my finial layout all put together......remember when I talked about reusing those circles that I cut out, I made a little flower out of them on this layout.

Make sure you leave a comment on my blog and let me know what you liked about this techinque or if you like to use mist sprays. By leaving a comment you could have a chance at a prize from http://www.sweetpeachcropshop.com/blog/ and make sure you visit all of the other ladies as well. Sunday night at midnight ET, the blog hop ends and Monday morning, random winners will be announced! There will be one winner from each blog and then one Grand Prize winner randomly chosen from everyone who commented. That is SIX chances to win!!! (One from each blog and one Grand Prize!) What’s the Grand Prize? One July kit!
