My recent experiments with page bases have involved mists. I have been taking Mists: Beyond Point and Shoot over at The Art Studio. I won't share everything I have misted. That would be a ton of stuff! I will share one of my favorites though.
The point of this creative exercise is not about how I will end up using this page base. I currently have no pictures in mind. For now, I will set it aside. I may pull it out, every now and again, and glue something onto it. I may one day pull out a photo and just know that this is the page base to use with it. Who knows. The point of the exercise was that I used my supplies and I had fun creating.
After I spent the better part of an afternoon misting and stamping a variety of objects onto plain white paper, I was ready for a week of scrapbooking. You need not take a whole afternoon for this type of creative exercise. Sometimes, I only take about 10 minutes or so. So try something today. Make a page base or a tag. Try a handmade embellishment. Just try something!
