I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...I know I did! I had a lot of fun this past week and TWO weekends creating for a special Paper Issues Online Crop. Oh my gosh, did I get inspired! They have the greatest group of ladies who are all very encouraging. The challenges were great fun, and I got a lot created.
One of the challenges was to make a creation with sparkle. Well I thought it was the perfect chance to combine two challenges. I ordered some chipboard embellishments from a company called "Creative Embellishments". I have to say, they have some of the most intricate chipboard pieces I have seen. They have their March challenge going so I thought I would play along and "Sparkle" up some of the chipboard pieces I had purchased for their challenge. http://creativeembellishments.com/blog/?p=4432 this is the link to their challenge.
Here is the layout I made for both of the challenges.
I love my honey!!! Anyway, I was inspired by the butterflies on the Creative Embellishment's challenge, and bought some Butterfly Flourishes from them. I also purchased some intricate Butterflies, but decided not to use them on this particular layout. I used some circle chipboard, (up in the upper left hand corner) that they sent me for placing an order. What a great treat!
I painted the Butterfly Flourishes with gold crackle paint and then sprinkled them with gold glitter. Isn't glitter fun? I think they look just right with the Prima "Princess" line.
If you are looking for some fun chipboard pieces, I would recommend Creative Embellishments.
Have a happy week!!
