Agnus | Project Life Shimelle Starhine

Hi again :) I have started documenting March and have another project life share using the gorgeous new Shimelle Starshine Collection from the store. 

I started the month by piecing together a custom title card using some of the papers from collection and was excited to try out the new Minc Reactive Mist to add some gold foiled splatters onto the card. 


I don't actually own a Minc Machine, but was able to achieve good results with my laminator and some gold Minc Foil. Rather than spraying the mist, I simply unscrewed the lid and used the spray tube to drip some splatters onto the cardstock and with a bit of trial and error I discovered that if you don't let the reactive mist fully dry before applying the foil, your droplets will spread in the direction that you run it through your machine. I used satin thread to add some hand stitched detail to the big number 3 for my March title and layered a mix of textured pieces to finish off the card.


I love adding embellishments to my pockets and really liked the variety of chipboard, stickers and die-cuts that are available int his collection. 


The large die-cuts from the ephemera pack were great for creating custom filler cards, and the pack also include a range of fun acetate pieces. 

The clear stickers were great for adding some detail over the patterned papers, which I used to create all of my cards. 


I repeated the colours and several elements from the first half of the week onto the second page to create a nice flow, and once again experimented with the Minc reactive mist to create another filler card. 
 

And I was very excited to discover that the Minc reactive mist also works on photos!! 
I used a small paintbrush to create a few smaller droplets on the pic.


More stickers and die-cuts helped me to create another filer card.


I finished off the final card by using the same pattern I used for the first card from the previous page and added cardstock layers and more hand stitching.
