We have had our Prima and Pink Paislee resist products for a little while now and we absolutely love them.

By using ink, chalk or sprays on these products you reveal a beautiful resist product which you can colour to suit any project your working on.

Prima Resist Canvas

Prima have released a number of resist canvas designs with their last two CHA releases . My favourite are the butterflies - because,a butterfly goes with almost anything! They have also released shapes which compliment several of their paper ranges including Printery, Alla Prima and North Country designs.

I used Prima chalks to bring these butterflies to life. 

The resist products are made from canvas and are paper backed. The backing on the shapes is not an adhesive  rather is used to add support and strength to the resist product. You can adhere your resist shapes using a craft glue.

If you want to see a demo of the resist canvas check out this Live With Prima link

Pink Paislee Mistables

We've been using the Pink Paislee Mistables paper and ribbon.

The paper comes in several designs which you can buy individually or as a pack. By using ink, chalk or spray the pattern underneath comes to life. I've found this project particularly suited to vintage layouts. Check out my layouts at the end of this post. Just remember to give them a little bit of drying time before adhering any photos.

Pink Paislee have also released their mistables ribbon. Their isn't a hidden pattern on these, however they are particularly useful when you don't have that perfect bit of ribbon to match your project, something that happens to me all the time despite my ever growing tub of ribbons.

Mistables two tone ribbon - I used Mr Huey's Plum Thumb
 and Heirloom Blue sprays. I made the bottle cap embellishment
as well which I will demo on the blog soon

A tip when using the mistables ribbon is to spread it out on a firm surface - attach some double sided table to hold it down , this will result in a more even spread or the ink/spray/mist that you are using.

I've sprayed the butterflies in this layout using
Mr Huey's Cameo mist, then lightly gone over with a white ink.

I've used a celadon and pinecone ink on the honeycomb
mistables paper to give it a vintage effect. this was from
our In the Fifties class at the May retreat.

Prima North Country Resist shapes -
I used dark calico, heirloom blue and  Calico Shine Mr Huey's sprays.
