Shimelle's Third Challenge: Mist!

I bought the Heidi Swapp Mustard Color Shine on my last craft haul. It's the first mist that I bought and I ♥ the color and the shiny effect it creates. Misting is a new technique I tried this year and I'm still in the process of experimenting on what I can do with it. 

My first attempt was using it on a dark background. I don't think I sprayed it evenly and it created blotches all around. 

Anyhow, the overall effect of the yellow on grey background is not bad and I'm happy with it.

I saw Shimelle has a mist challenge on her blog for NSD and I think that's another great excuse to play with my mist. On my second take of mist, I tried misting using a mask by The Crafters Workshop, Mini Life Strips 6x6 Template.

The word 'Awesome' is from the same mask too, but I inked this one with ColorBox Cat's Eye Daffodil Pigment Ink instead of using the mist.

The journaling spot is created using mist and mask.
My journaling spot took me a few attempts to get the look I want and I made 2 mistakes while trying. Firstly, I used my hand to hold down the mask and sprayed the mist. Well, bad idea. My hand was all glittery after that. The second mistake I made was spraying too near the paper. It gets too wet and I threw that away. There are still a lot about misting that I need to learn, especially with the mustard color I bought, I really need to experiment to see how it will look on background of different colors, and other ways of using it too.
