How to:
I sprayed a white piece of cardstock with a light color glimmer mist (creme de cacoa) If you spray up close to your paper you will get larger drops .. if you spray from a larger distance you will get a fine mist. I kept the edges of the paper "misted".. for the middle part where I would have my diagonal line of paper I took a paper towel and swiped over the (still wet) mist... this will give you more movement and an "even effect" . You could also choose to swipe the complete paper.
once the paper dried I put up the Stencils in the corner and sprayed again with a darker color.
I sprayed iridescent gold on the black paper flower to give it a nice shine, same with the patterned paper circles. Then made little dots with dimensional pearls.
I sprayed on the glimmer glass with the Copper spray.
The chipboard was sprayed in layers. The chipboard is almost white.. when you spray one layer it will give you a fine mist.If this is the effect you are looking for you are finished after this step. If you like rich colors you will need multiple layers. Let it dry inbetween layers (you can speed up the drying time with a heatgun) and add a second layer.. and/ or a third.. untill you get the effect you really like.
I started with the light color and kept adding darker colors.
