big trouble in little brooklyn...

so, little miss k here would be the first to tell you that i am no good at getting messy when i'm scrapping or whatever else. but when vee posted her "get painty" dare i decided to push up my hoodie sleeves and get into it already! 

i used a few of the stencils from that stencil me in book i got a month or so a go and about half a bottle of "haunted shadows" glimmer mist, which is probably my new favorite glimmer mist color! i was just about to type that i can't wait to get my hands on a full size bottle instead of the tiny bottle they gave away at cha, when the ups guy walked in with our glimmer mist order. dare i say spooky?

anyway, i love, love, love how the gold shimmer in the purple glimmer mist turned up on the plain bazzill background (which is another thing i rarely do). i also used my little galaxy gold brilliance ink pad on the edges of the page and pressed the mini maya road chipboard letters into the pad to "paint" them shimmery gold (my little trick to avoid breaking out the paint & brushes.)

love how it turned out and actually really loved getting messy!

p.s. sorry for the bad pictures, it's tricky capturing the glimmer on such a rainy grey day!
