I love the shimmer paint mist technique. I do have a question that I am hoping you might be able to answer, when you use the shimmer mist with alcohol is it safe for scrap booking or not. I a demo and I scrap book but I can't remember if that would be ok or not. Thanks,

Robin McK

Hi Patty - I had a question about this technique:
I tried it, and the Shimmer Paint leaked underneath the stencil, so the image spread out and wasn't crisp. Do you have any tips for me to get a crisp image with the Shimmer Paint and the Stencils?
