First a few basics with using Glimmer mist:
Shaking- I know this sounds so basic, but it actually helps me ALOT! I found it easiest to shake my bottles side to side rather than up and down. The reason being that when I shook them up and down, excess would gather in the lid and spray nozzle and when I opened it, it would leak all over my hands. I didn't mind it on my hands, but the thought of losing glimmer mist, unthinkable.
Double duty: This idea came to me while I saw all of the glimmer mist that I was wasting while spraying it on a project. I came up with a simple solution of placing tissue paper underneath while I was spraying. I hold it up a bit higher than the tissue paper so that the glimmer mist doesn't saturate the tissue paper but actually just falls lightly on to it. You could also use this technique with a gift bag as well to complete the pair. Anything will work!
Using Glimmer mist as a water color: This is another simple one, but still a good one. Just using Glimmer mist in an artist palette with a watercolor brush broadens the versatility of glimmer mist.
Here is the original
And here is a close up of the trees that are highlighted with a lighter color
Well this post is already becoming lengthy so I will cut it for now and continue in another one. The next post will talk about using glimmer mist with the Build a book album, mixology, masking and anything else I can remember or think up between now and then! For better pics of these projects check out the so cal scrap site gallery.

I have been asked to host a challenge on the So Cal Scrap site. This is one of my favorite sites, being that most of these are my home town girls and some of us started together on a scrap meetup group. But for you out of town gals, no worries!!! This site is offering a free online crop this weekend to celebrate their 1st anniversary!!!
So come check us out, from 2-4 on Saturday August 16th, we will be chatting up and having fun! I have TONS of product to raffle off, so there will be some of my I spy games, challenges and contests. If you check the site out now, you will notice two challenges that I have already posted An Altered Ego Challenge (giving "classic" product a new twist), and everyones favorite, ALL things PRIMA Challenge creating a project using ONLY PRIMA (minus CS and PP). But if you have a chance this Saturday, come check the site out. and drop me a little hello. This is my first chat so I am VERY excited!
As a Bonus for my blog buddies, post to this thread and come say hi to me on the so cal scrap site and I will do a random drawing of a couple things from my Prima stash.

New glittered transparencies
Sorry it has taken me a bit of time to get back on track, but here are some more pics of product from the booth. The felt gates are brand new and are reinforced with a bit of acrylic for ease of application, they also fit right onto the new Build a Book gated album. The new viola is soooo cute, there are even some new christmas designs. The stamps are amazing as well, there are individual stamps alpha's and a variety of sets. Tons to choose from!!! The new transparencies are glittered and way to cute, there also is a collage sheet tranparency that is nicely vintaged. And the new clear paintables are totally adorable!
And of course I had to add a pic of the group scrapping! That is all we did, all night long!
Hope this satisfies your CHA appetite for now!

This pic of me and Lauren, you can't see it but she is wearing my apron, is one of my favorites. Lauren came into my life like a whirl wind, but seriously a girl who will stick by her peeps! I just love the life that bubbles over in Lauren. And she is a fellow mom of little ones, hearing her stories just fascinates me and encourages me that I am right where I need to be in life! This girl makes art happen.
Oh the CKMB girls, I only had a quick moment to grab a hot dog with Noel and Latrice, but I had such a blast. And I have to say this pic was taken by the southern princess, Gretchen. It was a true pleasure meeting Latrice, she was TALL! and a total sweetheart. And of course I love my time with Noel too, she is always fun to be around.
LOL, I had to add this one of Tina, We took this while out to dinner, and celebrating Tina's "UN" birthday. Doesn't she look totally cute? Tina, you are one hot mama!
And Jen, one of my new favorite people. I had a blast chatting the night away with Donna, Jenn and Lauren. Jen is a fellow Primadonna and does alot of work with Ranger.
It was nice seeing old friends and making some new, I have tons of pics... someday soon I will get around to posting them all!!!
