Splatters and Misting

Hello everybody. Today is my turn to host July Inspired By Challenge#3 at Scrappin' Peeps. This week challenge is all about technique and I decided to explore and play the world of spray inks.  I love love love using spray ink (and paints). My page is not complete without them. So I issue a challenge to create a page with splatters or misting. Come and join us!
Tons of inspirations, tips and tricks how to do splatters and misting. Here are some of my favorites.

To create the background, I folded 12 x 12 cardstock to create an equal triangle. Cover half of the white cardstock and do the misting on the half and splaters on the other half. I used Dylusion spray ink bubblegum pink (splatters) and london blue colors (misting).
