Art Journaling 102: Technique Focus – Misty Overlays!

Art Journaling 102:

Technique Feature -

Misty Overlays



by Julie Ann Shahin, Studio Tangie Social Media Team

I’m very pleased to share with you today an Art Journaling Technique Feature demonstrating Studio Tangie products: Misty Overlays. Heather, Deb, Rain, and I have created examples using Misty Overlays for you.

They look like alcohol ink sprays! Tangie provides .png files that you just drag onto your page. So fast and easy, and no mess!

Inspiration for Misty Overlays by the Studio Tangie Creative Team



Had so much fun watching how the overlays played effortlessly off of each other, I didn’t want to pile too much stuff in their way.
