Creative Chemistry Day 9

Today we learned about Perfect Pearls. 

I had a LOT of difficulty with my homework, specifically with the Perfect Distress Technique.  I've seen Tim do this technique before and not gotten it right.  For whatever reason, when I mist the water over top of the distress ink and pearls, the pearls just spread out and the distress ink doesn't wick right.  I'm going to have to keep working on it.

That being said, I really love the way all my mists combined.  It's so cool to see the glimmer that you can get with perfect pearls.  Right now I have only the metallic set, but I just ordered two new sets and I can't wait for them to arrive.

I wish that my pictures did a better job of showing off the pearlescence of the tags!  They're really beautiful in person.

See you tomorrow for the LAST DAY of new lessons from Creative Chemistry 101.  I don't know what I'll do...  I'm going to miss this!
