Just want everyone to know, or maybe you already know..............PLEASE DO NOT PUT ALCOHOL INKS INTO SPRAY BOTTLES. It must become "toxic" when it hits the air. The spores get into your lungs and can cause you to become very ill. I heard about it, or read it, possibly on Tim Holtz' blog a while back (I read it somewhere~can't remember) This gal was mixing and making homemade ~ this and that, used her alcohol inks in a spray bottle and started misting. She became very very ill. PLEASE PASS THIS I don't want to see anyone become sick because of this. Alot of these products are NOT MEANT TO BE MIXED TOGETHER....................please, just be careful when making your homemade things to add to your scrapbooking minis/layouts, cards~ and whatever else you create. Thanks for listening!

Hi Jude......I don't really know what else is in glimmer mist, but at the bottom is "mica". I just want my friends to be careful when mixing this and that. Our little on-line friend AJ bought some mist bottles, and it kinda scared me, cause I don't want her mixing stuff. She's only 11 yrs. old. She's the sweetest little thing. I think she's going to be making homemade stuff. (it worries me)

Hi Velma!
Thanks for the heads up. I just leave it to the scientists. Honestly, I don't like making homemade products because I don't know what can be mixed with what. It's just safer buying it.

Where did you buy the white Prima flowers for Bona and Arlene? I would like to buy some. Thanks for the type on this mixing issue I'm a new scrapbooking person and it is very informative.
Thanks, Danielle Oakes

I checked this out with Tim Holtz via an email and he said it is indeed true. Alcohol inks should never be sprayed.
