Have you ever mixed sprays/mists. I am in need of a different color and wondered if you ever tried it. Is it the same as mixing paint?February 12, 2016 at 4:45 pm #438688
I sometimes mix sprays to get a lighter color. If I’m spraying chipboard or a doily I use the light color first then spray with the darker and mix them around with a brush.
I haven’t mix two different sprays in one bottle. Wonder what would happen!February 12, 2016 at 9:25 pm #438713
Good question. I like the idea of spraying them on a surface and mixing them there; if it’s a disaster, you wouldn’t be wasting that much.

I ended up going a different way, but trying it on plastic or something is a good idea.February 12, 2016 at 9:36 pm #438725
What are you working on, Barbara?

Another layout. I ended up using a Heidi swap spray, but didn’t know so much gold would show. Ends up i cover most of it. Plus i still have to stamp. My paper is a warped mess because i have no clear gesso. Going to try spraying water on the back side and see if that helps.February 12, 2016 at 9:41 pm #438731February 12, 2016 at 9:42 pm #438732
I’ve done that myself, Barbara and it’s so annoying. I never thought of spraying the back, hmmmmmmmm
Anyway, I hope it works and I can’t wait to see what you’ve done.

Well, Barbara, I’ve taken the iron to mine before! To the backside of course!February 12, 2016 at 10:46 pm #438744February 13, 2016 at 3:41 am #438749
Something else that I do when my paper is really warped is use scor-tape or the Prima artisan tape on the back of the paper in several strips. I take off one strip at a time and smooth it out onto a piece of heavy cardstock. Then, I use my magnetic mat and put ALL of the magnets I have in spots where it’s still a little buckled and the edges. If I do this and leave the magnet on overnight, it flattens out.February 13, 2016 at 5:24 pm #438767
Which reminds me, I watched a video of yours and love your mat! Thinking I need one.
I did try and iron it last night. I thought it worked pretty good at first but then it started bending in a few places. May try it again today.February 13, 2016 at 7:50 pm #438776
I can’t wait to see your layout Barabra. Hopefully you can get it flat.
I’ve never mixed sprays (because I have a problem and can’t stop buying more) but mixing Gelatos works. Just draw them onto your craft mat, mix them with your finger and then add water to make your very own spray.February 14, 2016 at 12:26 am #438825February 14, 2016 at 3:03 am #438851
I love mixing all my mixed media. I keep mini misters on my desk just for mixing or making my own mist.
I keep small jars for mixing embossing powders to get that perfect color. Then I save what’s leftover, I may need it again especially if I am working with a kit.
One of my favorite mixtures is a combo of embossing powders (2 colors) mica flakes and glitter.
I use the white sheets of paper that come in pager protectors to test my creations on. The best part about mixed media is experimenting.
There have been plenty of days i have gone to work with gesso, glitter, ink or paint somewhere on my body from a mixed media session the night before. No matter what, i always miss something when I shower. Besides, you know what they say about glitter. LOL!
