|I love to do double page layouts. I think it looks nice when you put them in the book side by side. The papers don't necessarily have to match, but they definitely need to coordinate. These customizable papers by Pink Paislee are called Mistables and are available in the Flamingo Scraps store. There are several styles that come in a package. These papers come in white and sometimes there is a slight print on them, like this one had some handwriting kinda faded in from the edges. They all have a resist pattern. What that means is when you ink, mist, color with markers, paint with water colors, etc, the paper resists the color in some places and absorbs in others. The end result is you have patterned paper in any color you want! You can see here the pretty damask pattern showed up when I randomly sprayed Heidi Swapp Tinsel and Sweet Cherry Color Shine Mists on the papers. The sweet cherry gets much more intense if you dry it completely before wiping the excess off. But, for this page I wanted a softer touch so I sprayed and immediately wiped it off. I like combining colors to get a soft fluid water color effect.|

|These little blings add interest to the hexagon banner.|
|Again, I used the blings in an ink spatter pattern across the hexagon. I like how they sort of follow the butterfly!|
|Again, using the blings as a substitute for the ink spatter here. I like how you can create an invisible "line" that draws the eye to your focal picture with the ink spatter look.|
|I just try to imagine how the ink would fall and what it would look like, then apply the blings.|
|I just love my butterflies!|
