Shadowed Swirls

Hi! Anabelle here and I'm sharing a fun new technique. I love Glimmer Mist and the wonderful effects you can get from it. To create the shadowed swirl I created on this page, you just need to do a couple of things.

First, spay ink onto a mask. I used a Regal Glimmer Screen and Olive Vine Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. Stamp the image onto cardstock.

Next, grab a white crayon and add shadows. I colored in under and on the right side of the stamped image. After that, spray a lighter color (I used Blue Skies) onto the entire page and wipe off with a paper towel. The white crayon will resist the ink and leave a shadowed effect on the page.

I used the Sonoma County kit to create the rest of the page. It's a homage to my love of scrapping supplies.

So grab that white crayon and start making shadows!
Thanks for taking a peek and thanks for stopping by.
