Green grass and blue skies


One thing I love to do with Shimmerz Spritz is create an outdoor background for my layouts. For this hot air balloon layout, I started with white cardstock and sprayed the top half with Sea Foam Spritz (the sky) and the bottom half with a mixture of a couple of the green Spritz colors (the grass).

This layout features pictures of a hot air balloon ride my husband and I took over the Masai Mara in Africa years ago. The funny thing is that I've always been EXTREMELY afraid of heights, but for some reason the hot air balloon ride didn't bother me at all -- even knowing that if we went crashing to the ground, we would most likely be eaten alive by wild animals. Luckily that didn't happen.

Here's a close-up of my Spritz'd background:

Have a fantastic weekend!!
