Musical Dudes

Hi, its Vanessa here and this month I’m carrying on with the State Fair Collection by Studio Calico. I’m also carrying on with the misting theme (my passion for the moment!) and I’ve created this page using a quick and simple misting technique, and a few quick techniques generally, which also give effective results.

Using a mask is a quick, simple and effective way of adding a splash of colour and interest to your page. Before doing anything else, I placed the mask (by Prima) in the bottom right corner of the page and then sprayed the mist at a slight angle. The mist is Butternut Squash orange.
I’ve done a little bit of stamping with the retro radio from the AC sing-a-long collection. Stamped onto patterned paper and cut out. As well as adding colour, I love to add definition to my pages and I find outlining the page and the elements with a black journaling pen works really well.

Love the colour combination. I've got those thickers and wasn't sure about them but they look great against the white and with the red. Love the repeated stamped image too and the hint of the organza ribbon. :)
