Mist with April Foster

Last month, the stitching challenge was hosted by Scarlet Namvong. She mentioned being one of two creative directors at Studio Calico. I am the second half of that duo

My name is April Foster. I was born in Texas, relocated to Tennessee, and later Kentucky, so watch out, I have a killer Southern accent! I became interested in scrapbooking in high school in a school club where I was the Historian. From there, it’s become my hobby, obsession, and major part of my life. I love that I am able to meet so many amazingly talented and inspiring people through this hobby and that it has caused me to continue to challenge myself creatively.

So, now I want to challenge you to use Spray Mists in your scrapbooking. Here’s what I like about them:

-- They’re relatively inexpensive considering the number of uses you will get out of them (~$7 for a 2 oz bottle which so far hasn’t run out for me)

-- They give you a way to stretch your embellishments and alphabets

-- They can be used to give your projects a funky look (I’m a very linear scrapper, so anything to make my layouts look new and exciting is a plus for me)

-- If you don’t like painting chipboard with a brush, this is a wonderful alternative (You can see more about this on the video-tutorial on my blog)

-- They dry very quickly, so it makes for faster scrapbooking


For an AWESOME tutorial on using these mists, see April's blog at:

Here is what the team did with the challenge:




Ok, you have seen the challenge. Now get out those sprays and go for it! You have 2 weeks to complete this challenge. Please post here by midnight on Sunday, January 25th to be considered for a RAK. Enjoy!

AWESOME! I already have a collection of glimmer and maya mists, which I LOVE to use, on anything I can! Time to get working on my layout... I get all giddy about challenges that require me to use my fave products =P
