Don't worry I didn't take the day off, even though it's my birthday. I worked on a little project for myself this weekend. It's no secret I love mist..any mist...Tattered Angels, Maya Road, Shimmerz, Luminarte. This past week I was organizing and pulled out all my mist out from my drawer. To my surprise after looking each one over, I didn't have one duplicates...yet.But, I needed a way to organize them. Every time I would want to buy some mist online I have to haul piles of them up the stairs and set them up in front of the computer and then order.
My first thought was to spray pieces 3x3 square of paper, cut them out with a circle punch-label each color under it and make show boards. Great idea, but them I would have a pile of show boards. I don't have the room for them and 50 bottles of mist. Here's take 1 on that idea before I came up with a better idea...
 don't worry, these will not go to waste, I'll find use for them!

On Saturday, I went to a craft store and found these small pre-punch tags really cheap. I sprayed each tag with a different color and grouped them by manufacture. I have Tattered Angles, Maya Road, Luminarte and Shimmerz.

I found it interested after spraying the tags and seeing the finished results. The way the colors looked and the way they sprayed out of the bottle.
These are the Maya Road Tags, they are rich in color and have a nice full coverage. I notice after they dried these were the only tags that stayed flat and didn't curl up.I have no idea why or the reason behind it, but thought it was cool.

These are the Tattered Angels tags...

Isn't it interesting to see the cool textures that come out of the Tattered Angles bottles. I guess that's were the "tattered" word comes from.
I'm glad I redid the tags and used the "tag and bookrings." They will be easier to carry up the step, to my computer so when I place my order at BlueMoon I can just site and look at my sample pieces.
I recently just decided to add a 5th book because of the new Tattered Angels Chalk Mists, have you seen these? BlueMoon just got them in and you can purchase them here!

I think since today is my birthday, I'll ask my husband to buy me the Tattered Angels Chalk Mists! What to you think, leave him a comment here and give him all the GOOD reason I need more mist--plus he'll need color idea's too, which ones????
Have a wonderful day! I know I will. Gotta get me some yummy birthday cake and ice cream, wish I could share with everyone! oh before I leave, I really want to leave you with a peek of my next kit....It's so awesome!!!!!!

ok, now have a great day!
