LTDO Challenge...Backgrounds

It has been a very busy week, hence the no blogging. What with Guides, Katy had a History presentation in Eastbourne, then her parents evening, then she and Jasper had a cabaret/concert last night and I am back on soap wrapping so the week has whizzed by with no crafting being done. Yesterday I popped to the Stitches Exhibition in Brighton. Not bad but very little scrapbooking bits. I did finally manage to buy some cosmic shimmers which I have been trying to get my mitts on for over a year and a couple of books that I couldn't find on amazon so it was worth the bus fare!
Anyway onto my LTDO piece which this week is "Backgrounds" Well it HAD to involve my new misters! I decided to make a page for my Snow Book. So i ripped up some pages from an old book (the Snow Queen), inked the edges and stuck them down. Then I covered them with spritzed distress inks and sprayed on a white shimmer mist (think it's called baby's breath!)
Once that lot had dried I stamped over with a circles stamp and a snowflake in silver Brilliance. I wanted a subtle effect as there will be a photo covering most of the page. It does look better IRL...these shimmery things are tricky to photograph aren't they!
