Girl's Best Friend

Aaaah.... that's better. :)  Work has been crazy lately, and between that and family needs, I haven't been able to find time to scrapbook. Or when I did, it was only for short amounts of time. I seem to be back on top of things (for now) and actually had some free time. I finally finished a Hallowe'en layout I was working on (THAT layout took forever as it felt like I HAD to finish it before starting something new).
Anyway, this layout flew! I tried misting for the very first time. I started off with just some Twinkling H20s in a mini mister to get the orangey-red colour that would match the outside border. That looked a little like blood spatter, so I added some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Teal. I wanted to try this product out as I've heard many rave about it. And it didn't disappoint. The colour is highly pigmented and has a nice metallic lustre to it.
So then I misted some 3D letters:

 And some paper ribbon from Stampin' Up:
The paper, brads, and enamel dots are all MME:

And this is some Artisan Elements from Pink Paislee, painted with the Twinkling H20s:

I may now be a misting convert. A new product for my "collection." ;)
