I love creating and sharing as you learn so much from others work. Plus the BONUS is I will have 12 double layouts all set and ready for me to add photos from my time at Convention- Woo-HOO!!!
Texture Tools and used the Black Stubble Tool to create the swirled circles. It is really simple- just load the black stubble tool in the ink color of your choice(I used pansy purple) and then with a forceful circular motion twist the color on your paper. SO FUN!
Next I used the Puddle Pad Technique to create the tye-died look with the stamp images. Have you tried this yet? I love the great tutorial we have on Art and Soul TV. If you are not checking these episodes out you really should add them to your must see tv! The technique training and product knowledge ROCK! Click here to watch this great episode and then try it for yourself! YOU WILL LOVE it- promise!
Glitz Stardust Glitter Glue was PERFECT! In just one step I simply squeezed and applied the glue where I wanted, set it aside to dry(it does take a bit) and then enjoyed the fun sparkle and embellishment it created! Easy Peasy!
and here is some sad news....The 9x9 format offered by Close To My Heart will be retiring. So if you are like me and LOVE scrapping in this format be sure to stock up on page protectors and albums before they are gone! The simply snapshots will be retiring as well and are discounted so snag those while you can! I was secretly hoping that they would announce something at Convention to replace the Simply Snapshots but they let us know that the 9x9 and 6x6 sizes are retiring. :-( So here is your enabler telling you- gotta get them while you can!!! I know I will be making an order ASAP!
