I think I might be part crow, because I love ANYTHING that makes it shimmer and shine 🙂 With that comes some adhesive challenges. Something I have always struggled with was keeping sequins attached to my layouts. Well, in this post I have your solution.
This layout began with my base layers. Cream and white cardstock were used to make the largest 2 layers and the cream cardstock ring. If you have an electronic cutting machine, this will be easy. Me, I used 2 different sized dinner plates, traced them and cut them it out with scissors.
Once the ring is popped up on the layout I added Adhesive Lines ALL the way around the ring. This is what will keep your sequins exactly where you want them to be.
I added the sequins one-by-one around the middle of the cardstock ring. Then added a gold doily to the inside of the ring. When I work with more delicate papers, I like to get out my E-Z Runner® Permanent Fine Adhesive Dispenser, it will keep it down without destroying it in the process.
Next, I added my matted photo. In this case, I knew I was going to be using some dimensional embellishments. I wanted the photo to be extra popped up so that it didn’t get lost in the background. When I do this, I just double up those 3D Foam Squares.
Once the photo is in place, then I start to attach my embellishments. Adhesive Dots are my go-to adhesive to add anything from flowers to buttons.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
