My first video!

I don't know about you, but I sure am glad that the weekend is here! And since it's Saturday, it's my turn to post my Things with Wings project for The Beary Scrap. I think the entire design team was inspired by butterflies this week. All of the DT projects have been gorgeous! I chose to make a Gable box decorated in Monarch butterflies. I promised you a tutorial this week - so be prepared for my first video! If you ever doubted that I was a Southern girl, you won't after you watch my video! I will be showing you some techniques, using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, that I used while making my box. (For the template for the Gable box, please go to the Dutch Dare Challenge Blog - they have a link, as well as another week to enter their challenge)

There are so many cool things that you can do with Glimmer Mist and we would love to see your favorite techniques. Next week promises to be another fun week at The Beary Scrap, so please come back and visit us!

Beautiful box! Fab tutorial! I just placed an order for 2 Glimmer Mists. I can't wait to get them as it will be my first time using them. Can I use regular salt? How do you clean the glimmer screens? Where did you purchase the teflon sheet? Sorry for all the questions. I'm a newbie to Glimmer Mists. I luv how you can change your DP colour with the Glimmer Mists.

Love the video! I have just started to get into Glimmer Mist so this was great for me to watch. Heading to get the template. I think it's just what I need for one of Shawne's DP. Thanks!
