PostSubject: Glimmer Mist   Tue Oct 06, 2009 11:45 am

Love it or hate it?

When I got my first bottle I wasn't too thrilled with the product, but once I learned how to use it right... I became an addict. I have so many bottles now. My friend and i don't order the same colors and just share when we need a certain color. Even though we share I keep buying more!!

What are your favorite ways to use glimmer mist?

I like creating my own background paper using masks or just spritzing more than one color on at a time. I also have found using an eyedropper to add the colors creates a cool effect!

I only have one bottle because I can't get it around here and can't order it on-line right now. Unfortunately, the color is not one that I use a lot, so I've only played with it a little. I do like it though and would LOVE to try more colors!

I've used it for adding shimmer to a few fall cards last year & also to sprits some lace. Smile

i love it but like Maya Mist better because it's not so much water based on Glimmer Mist.

however, i demo-ed Glimmer Mist at a scrap event this past weekend. they are peeks on my blog & i'll post full pics of the make & take this week. i picked up some of the new colors - Cinder, Pumpkin Pie, and Olive Vine. so many colors & LOVE them all!!!

I love it! I've used it as background on my layouts, and I've also used it on actual photos on the edges. I sprayed it on a cosmetic sponge and sponged it on the edges of my photos.

I've never used any, but a Maya Mist is in the post on its way to me as we speak! It's my first mist so I'm a bit nervous about how to use it...any tips?

I love using an eyedropper to apply it. I think that's my new favorite technique. Test it out on some scraps first at different distance, it sprays different depending on how far away you are from the project.

LOVE I love you Glimmer Mist. I prefer glimmer mist over the maya ones because I love the shimmer it adds to a product. I have used it on chipboard, prima flowers, also recently used a mask with paint and then glimmer mist on top.

The first bottle I bought is about half empty so yeah I LOVE it!!! Its so easy to use ladies you just shake and spray there really is nothing to be afraid of.

I've used it a bit. Chipboard is probably my fav way of using it. I'll see if I can find an example.



This one I used a mask:

Put whatever you are spraying on scrap paper to catch any overspray.

i LOVE Glimmer Mist. I have 7 or 8 bottles now but am hoping to get some more soon! I was not a fan until I got some. It can be a bit intimidating. It's SOOOO fun! I have done a few layouts with it, I will post them in my album so you can see. But here is one of my favorites

I have several bottles and at first I was overwhelmed by it but now that I've used it some, I'm liking it....... I don't use it all the time and I have the stencils that really help. What I found out a few weeks ago is that it can REALLY come in handy with school projects........ For my son's 10th grade History project we had to "tea stain" a paper and make it look really old..... as a final touch I threw in a spritz of Glimmer Mist on it and it gave it such an amazing look.... He got a 95 score on it also!!!
