So let me just say that these four little ATCs took me about 3 months to do. It was one of those projects where I'd pick them up, get stuck, put them back down. Pick them up, move them out of my way, put them back down. Pick them back up...well, you get the idea. At one point, I painted them in different colors and then used Elmer's glue to make a crackle effect which was a technique Gabrielle (on the LPS Design Team) taught us at the message board.
The effect was really cool but I was still at a loss on what to do with these things. Then I got some Maya Mist from LPS and it got me thinking about how I could try it out on these ATCs (I was a Mist Virgin you see). So I glued Hendrix to the cards, set them on a paper towel and read the instructions on the mist bottle:
-Shake well (check!)
-Spray at an angle (check!)
-about 6" from surfaces (huh?)
I never was good at math because I apparently have no idea how far away from surfaces 6 inches is, whoops. So I blasted these things with Maya Mist into next Saturday. I got it all over everything, including a vintage hair scarf (no worries, right into the washer it went, all perfect again!) and my crackle effect. Not only that but I had a flashback of Gene Wilder warning Violet not to chew the gum as Hendrix turned bright blue right before my very eyes. Well, crap...
Although the more I looked at them, they didn't seem so bad. But lesson learned, bring a ruler next time I try spraying anything with anything.
