I love to use mist on my pages, especially since it gives white space interesting depth. However, when designing this layout, I was afraid that the mist might overpower my journaling space. My solution? Mask a portion of the layout so that the journaling space will be mist-free.
First, I penciled in where my page elements would be (so as not to spray mist all over photos and embellishments). Next, I laid down a circle mask. I used one by Heidi Swapp, but any circle will do - a plate, a piece of cardstock, anything. I lightly sprayed my mist around the circle and allowed it to dry. Finally, I carefully removed my mask and then outlined the shape with hand stitching. My journaling is easily read in the mist-free portion, and yet the mist through the white space portion is just the effect I wanted.
I hope you've been inspired to break out your mists and masks when designing your next layout. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
