So I just have the one bottle of dylusions from nsd but have several bottles of the tattered angels glimmer mist.

My son and I watched several of the videos but still wasn't really able to do the ghosting.

So we need more dylusions? And it doesn't work with the tattered angels then?

I'm half way through my bottle of Dylusions. It goes with Glimmer Mist perfectly.

The paper just soaked up the sprays so SO fast like in 5 secs and got hardly nothing when I blotted with the paper towells.

Then adjust your drying time, or maybe a diff type of paper? Keep practicing, I think yours looks cool too!

I have some of the Dylusions sprays as well and played with them this weekend. I tried the ghosting technique as well on a couple of tags. My tags didn't quite turn out as cool as the demo but it did work. I think it just takes some practice. Maybe try a card or a tag - something smaller and go from there.

I wonder if Dy's paper in the video might have been slightly coated or something, because with all that spray and all that water it really wasn't curling up much.

It just turned out way brighter that I wanted cause the paper soaked up that spray so fast. lol

I did break down and buy some of those manilla tags but it'll be a few days before they get here.

Maybe I need more water too? I do wonder if that paper she's using had a bit of a coating too. lol

Thanks guys

Thank you Stick I may do that!

After many years of knowing about this place I finally ventured into Prarie Art Stamps in Springfield, Il as I was told by our newer lss I might find more misting stuff there. And so I picked up two more of the dylusions in red and blue and am now kicking myself for not picking up a yellow too. It's a great little store and i'll have to get back in there next month No more spending this month. lol

And today those manilla tags came in so hopefully in the next couple days I can experiment again on the ghosting and templates.

If you are going to do it on just plain sketch book paper or something of that nature you need to prime teh paper first so it is not as absorband like with Guesso
