Hello all my fabulous friends!
Today I have another LO to share... This one I was trying to really focus on some of the principles of design, but found it really hampered my creative processes... since I have studied the principles of design, I had to try, right? I guess I'll go back to letting the creative juices take over rather than over thinking it. LOL!
I started out by spraying ands splattering on Acrylic paint and CI paint. It is a fun way to add a little something "hand made" to patterned paper. (however, I strongly suggest covering anything in a 3 foot area that you don't want splattered... I'm amazed at where I find paint after a project like this. LOL!)
I cut the title out of chipboard using my Cricut. For the (self) part, I made a mix of Fairy Dust CI paint and Tattered Rose Distress reinker to paint it. After it had dried, I painted on some glue and covered it with glitter. Now I hate the way glitter seems to end up on EVERYTHING when you use it on a page, and eventually you end up with a sheet protector full of glitter instead of a pretty page... To solve this, I cover each glittered letter with Glossy Accents. It give it a beautiful glossy finish while encasing the glitter to ensure it NEVER flakes off!
lots of die cuts and punches going on for layers... I also used my ancient label maker to create some accent words. Fun stuff!
Have a wonderfully lucky day!
