I love the texture in this layout, plus it's a special photo. The cardboard was distressed and then painted & inked. I inked the bird and title using two colours. Then I sprayed it with GlimerMist, and used Distress Stickles to add details & texture to the bird. The chipboard scrolls have been inked and dry embossed. There is a hidden journalling pocket behind the photo.

Another favourite photo of my girls. This was really an experimental piece, I used a canvas backwards, tore up my (perfectly good) K & Company paper and adhered it with Modge Podge. Once it was tacky I brushed lots of Perfect Pearls (by Ranger) which gave it a gorgeous sheen. I painted the exposed wood, and Glimmer Misted the outer frame of the canvas, Then added Fantasy Film, & Crystallina shred, covering it with Impasto, then more Perfect Pearls. The chipboard words were painted, the leaves & flowers Glimmer Misted. (I've attached a closeup so you can see the shimmer & shine). I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on the photo mat, then it was painted gold, and dry embossed. (Can you tell I love playing with "stuff"?)
I love this photo I took of my youngest daughter. Believe it, or not this used to be plain white paper - you know the inserts from your album refills? It was totally transformed using Twinkling H2Os. There is a tutorial on my blog regarding this "Gladwrap Technique". Then I sprayed Glimmer MistStazon when stamping over GM or H2Os, it won't smudge and the ink takes on a subtle appearance). Flowers were sprayed with GM, and details added with Dimensional Pearls. Chippy was painted with Radiant Rain (Luminart) daubers. It's very shimmery in the light! (You can never have too much bling!)
