My goal in 2014 is to pull out some of the products I bought sometime ago and did not use.
Starting here with a layout of my Grand Daughter, I've used some Recollections glitter, pearls, tiny heart gems and even tinier clear seed beads. All glued down with Glossy Accents.
Another item bought and not used was a package of Cloth Stem Wire. This soft very flexible wire works well to create a twisted string effect, like I have done here to in-circle the photo. Also wrapped some around a skewer to give it that spring look or little wondering vines among the leaves look.
The lovely flowing clusters of leave on a branch are chipboard die cuts from Creative Embellishments. First I sprayed the bare chipboard with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist....Coffee Shop. Spraying this dark of a color on bare chipboard gave the chipboard a dark rich color. In the title "My Girl" the chipboard had first been painted white and then sprayed. If you look closely you can see the title is a lighter brown.
I plan to add a few words down in the right hand corner, but I haven't decided yet just what I want to journal. I'm really loving the way the new unused products came out on this layout. Now what else haven't I opened that I need to use???? Come back for my next project and see.
Thank you for coming by to take a look. If you would like to see a video showing more on this Layout go to... https://www.youtube.com/user/MooreArtFromTheHeart
