Using Glimmer Mist for Journaling Spots

This LO is being featured at Crop Chocolate today.

Nerdy Bird by Sassafras. I could have gone with the trendy shabby chic, flowery fabulousness... or even dark and mysterious with lots of fun TH techniques. It would have been a great opportunity to move outside of my usual style. However, I don't exude shabby chic-ness and I'm not mysterious. I'm something of a clown and a kid magnet. I chose Nerdy Bird by Sassafras since I'm a nerd and a music teacher. I used my kiddie embellishments because I sing, dance, crawl on the floor all day, and thrive on silly jokes. I included a quote about being a mother because it is my most favorite job ever. My little boy took that picture last summer when he was four years old and I thought he captured me perfectly.

Tips and trips for misting and masking.

Made a mistake so I punched a circle and foam dotted it, topped with a button.

My trademark: random brads.

I think this creature looks like me.
