Greetings! I am SO EXCITED to be a part of this wonderful and talented design team – many thanks to Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Media Director, Beth Pingry, for the opportunity!
Today I am using Designer Shapes – 3D Foam’s 3D Foam Stars to create my Sparkly Christmas page. Doesn’t it go well with this patterned paper – my inspiration!
First I used wired thread in stark white to shape into a large circle by looping three times and twisting the ends together. To add the gold color, I misted color around the loops and left to dry.
While the twine was drying, I took off the 3D Foam Stars with its liner in tack, flipped it to its back and added gold glitter on top. I did this as I wanted to determine my placement of the stars before “committing!”
After placing the stars where I wanted, I adhered the circle with DODZ™ – Medium and hid them with a glittered star.
I layered various patterned and printed vellum papers in different sizes before placing the photos on top with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips and E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesive. For more dimension, I popped up the sentiment panel (after inking the edges with Fire Brick Ink) with 3D Foam Squares – Black, Regular size.
Added more stickers and “Happy Holiday” die cut from white cardstock swiped in leftover gold mist spray from the wired twine. Used Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6″ to place on the lower right corner and it’s ready to be shared!
Here’s a second look of the finished page…
