As part of my New Year's resolution to try better blogging tricks, I'm starting a new series of posts called "Object of my Desire." I love it when all those super-clever bloggers have installments on a theme & neat layouts. So, here's my go at something like that:
(Note: I'm not affiliated with this company or the ebay store )
then just use a thin bead of Crystal Effects
Use pieces of c.s. instead of dimensionals for thinner supports under mats
2....embossed with clear e.p...sponged on tempting turquoise ink...stamped Sanded background stamp (tempting turquoise ink) over image
3. ...outlined with a Real red marker & added glitter on flowers (with Sakura glue pen.)
4....matted image on (marker-tinted) red c.s. & celery c.s...distressed.
5....layered white vintage taffeta ribbon & Real Red c.s. (marker-tinted) & with Certain Celery c.s. Glued it on with C.E. (see above.)
6....added strip of B.G. patterned paper (Yule Log-Dasher line.)
7....put Sakura glue pen on the dots in the B.G. paper & put turquoise glitter on...added gem brads.
8.... stuck pieces of c.s. onto the back of the matted image with double-sided tape --to lift it off the card in a balanced way (see above.)
9....wrote out sentiment ('Love') in glue pen & glittered it, heat-gunned it dry, & matted it .
10....adhered it with two pop up glue dots.
And that's all she wrote folks!
P.S. If you have a second, please comment to let me know if this style of posting floats your boat or what I could improve upon.
E.T.A. Ok, if you're not convinced you need a glue pen yet, check out Erika's astoundingly adorable octopus detail done with one and you will be. I wish I was loaded (or just not broke, lol) I'd like to buy the world a glue pen (after solving world hunger.)<---that really is not meant as an obnoxious joke--just feeling guilty in my commercialism...
