Tuesday's Tip

This past weekend I was at an art retreat. I was using my time to put together scrapbook pages for  Club Scrap's Retreat Friendship Swap.  One of the embellishments I used was flowers. Luckily. I found the exact colors for which I was looking. But what if you do not?

There are flowers in different colors and sizes. (Prima is one of the most common manufacturers.) There are times I have wanted a particular shade of color that I could not find. So, I made a spray with ink pad re-inkers and water - and sprayed white  flowers. Voila - the exact color I needed!

You can use pre-mixed sprays (Adirondack, Glimmer Mist, Radiant Rain, etc) or mix up your own.
