Create a Background Using Vibez!
We're all familiar with misting our background cardstock, . . . this time I will be using a mask to create a pattern on my page. First, I pulled out my Sea Monkey Vibez by Shimmerz Paints.
I used my Silhouette to out a large polka dot pattern to use as a stencil. (If you don't own an electronic cutting machine you could also create a polka dot pattern using the grommet punch by Making Memories.) There are so many great patterns and backgrounds available through the Silhouette site . . . I am just itching to try this technique over and over again!
Lightly tape your pattern to your cardstock. Use additional sheets of paper or paper towels to cover up the exposed edges of cardstock sticking out past the edges of your mask. Covering the edges will ensure that you won't get a line of "overspray" while you are misting. Spritz the openings with your Vibez spray ink. If you need to, move and line up your pattern around the page until you reach the desired result.
Give it a try! It's easy and oh, so FUN!!!!
