If you enjoy browsing Pinterest or paper scrapbooking galleries for inspiration, you might have noticed a fun trend taking over the paper world: spritzing or misting! I’ve spotted paper scrappers and card makers spraying/misting/splattering/inking everything from chipboard to fabric, backgrounds to tags. Some companies even market whole lines of special “mistable” products. A favorite technique seems to be using masks for a beautiful resist effect.
What exactly IS Spritz or Mist?
It’s pretty simple – using a premade mask or any cut-out shape, tack down the mask to any surface. Then you spritz away! Several manufacturers offer spray ink, like Mr. Huey’s by Studio Calico and Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels, in a variety of colors, shimmers, and other options.
Here are what a few of the paper “spritz” products.
If you haven’t seen this lovely trend in action yet, be sure to check below for a little eye candy.
