1st 4th of July

Today is Thoughtful Thursday at thinking* through* design, the newest thought is splattering!  I have done a little experimenting with misting on my layouts but this is my first time splattering!  I must say, I had fun splattering my new colors.....had to make a trip to the LSS, an hour away, for the colors that I needed for my layout!  

Since I was scrapping my granddaughters first 4th of July, I planned a star/red, white, blue theme.  I decided to try splattering on white cardstock, just to see if I like the effect.  I liked it so much that I cut my smaller stars and the tag from my first try, no sense in wasting any paper or mist!   After misting the cardstock with both colors, I removed the misting tip from the bottle and tapped the end across my hand, getting the larger drops of mist.  

Be sure to stop by t*t*d and check out the layouts and thoughts from our Thoughtful Girls!  Please share your layouts with us and ask your friends to join in the fun!
