Hand decorated background paper, using masks/stencils and mist sprays, is ideal for making customized background patterns. I used Memory mists, but you can make your own mists.

- Glimmer Mist Recipe by That artist woman. Great hint: “Add a marble if you have one (Dollar Store), this helps with mixing it. Shake well before using and spray as needed.”
