Bad blogger, Jana! Bad blogger! :)
Last week was NUTSO at my house. And I'm sure you had a similar list going on at your house! :) Lots of Valentine craftiness (Valentine boxes, Helping the kids sign, stuff, address 70 valentines, Making Valentine boxes, Making and kitting a Valentine craft for a class party, making sugar cookies, etc. etc. etc.), Primary preparedness (Burning & Labelling 50 Primary CD's, Making 60 Valentines for my Primary kids, Preparing for my Singing Time Lesson), Preparing for a Stake Valentine's Dance (packaging prizes, printing quizzes, table tents, etc.), and people being sick (Jensyn had an ear infection and I haven't been feeling well). So I apologize for not posting. But, I did it! I made it through the week! LOL!
I had so much fun creating the cloud embellishments on this page for this week's Be Inspired challenge at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. :)
First, I handcut my clouds from white cardstock and embossed them using my Cuttlebug. I used the Swiss Dots and Houndstooth folders. When I held my clouds up to my page they were too bright against the other off-white elements of my page. I used Treasured Hymn Spritz by Shimmerz Paints to tone them down and give them an antinque feeling.
Next, I added Morning Mist Pearlz by Shimmerz Paints along the edges of the clouds. I like how it made them feel more dimensional. The final touch was a coat of Pixie Dust Blingz by Shimmerz Paints . Now my clouds are sparkly and magical! :D I wish I could take pictures to do them justice! They are so sparkly and FUN!!! The felt layered butterflies are also sparkling with a coat of the Pixie Dust Blingz . . . what a versatile paint!
If you don't have any Pixie Dust Blingz or your unsure of which one to try first . . . Pixie Dust Blingz goes with EVERYTHING! :D You will love it!
