Misting Your Background & a farewell

Hello Chic Tags fans.  Sherri here to send you off with a bang.  For my last layout I wanted to try something I don't often venture into: misting.
My intention was to use tiny tags to create my photo base, and only colour mists to create my background, rather than patterned paper.  Talk about easy, and fun.  I started by choosing some of the cards from the Cloud 9 Collection, and one journal card from the Let's Go Collection to act as my base, and ground everything.  After that, I simply sprayed some Heidi Swapp Color Shine (in mustard) near the area where I wanted my photo cluster to be, and then dropped some coordinating colours around the outer edges of the yellow.  I then took my long narrow date stamp and placed it just off center to the left of the page.  From there I placed my yellow journal card to be the base around which everything else was layered.

A few Mini Icon cards scattered around with some coordinating buttons and enamel dots, and my layout was complete.

Mixing in just a touch of gold from the Cloud 9 label stickers, and (last year's) Good Tidings Christmas rub-ons, helped to tie in the the gold glitter alphabets that I knew I wanted to use for my title.

I have so enjoyed my time with Chic Tags.  Albert & Veronica are two of the kindest, most encouraging people you will meet in this industry.  They love each of us as designers and most importantly as people, and have been a huge inspiration for me with their innovative and trendy products.  I can't thank them enough for allowing me to go on this wonderful adventure with them.  I wish them all the best in their future endeavors.  I also want to thank each of you who so faithfully popped in to see how I might inspire you to use Chic Tags products.  Your comments always made my day, thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your scrappy journey.

Much love from the bottom of my heart,
