...such a rich red, such a gorgeous turquoise. And the name? Glimmer Glam. It sounds lovely doesn't it? So I bought some :)
Last night I had the urge to make a page, and somewhere in the creating process it dawned on me that my turquoise (actually, it's called "mermaid") Glimmer Glam would match my project. Not long after that, I realised that I had absolutely no idea what to do with it! LOL! It doesn't come in a spray bottle like Glimmermist, and my computer was turned off, so I couldn't google some instructions....hmmmm...what to do?
So I found an eyedropper (from the baby panadol days) and made some globs of Glimmer Glam on my background paper...
...so far so good. Then I grabbed a paintbrush and painted some white chipboard letters with it...noice. The spots looked a bit plain, so I used the tip of a letter opener to make little sun shapes...it sorta matched the retro look of the sticker I was planning to use.
Then I got totally carried away and painted over the dress on the sticker! I can see how this stuff can get addictive :)
After leaving it overnight to dry, I ended up with this...
...which really is quite sparkly in real life! I must point out that this is a 9x9 layout, a size that I use for my little album where I put pages just about me :) and which I add to,on average, once a year :)
Paper is by Echo Park, sticker is Modern Homemaker by October Afternoon, and sparkles are Glimmer Glam Mermaid.
And yes...I started a new job today :)
P.S. I do usually use photos in my scrapbooking...you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise given my last few pages :)
