Sweet Afternoon - Teresa Collins!

Saturday, December 15, 2012

Every now and again I play around with different products, colours and techniques than I use on an everyday basis. This layout is one of those moments that I felt like a change as I had been sitting on this Sweet Afternoon collection from Teresa Collins waiting for that rainy day. I must confess, I really loved creating this layout!

Gail created these sweet flair badges (Greatest View) with a small banner where you can add your own sentiment simply by using a rub-on or small alpha stickers. I added the word 'Moments' to this little badge with a rub-on which went on so effortlessly and has stuck permanently!

I was having a wee dabble with my Pan Pastels which I used to add a soft hint of colour to the WOW (Words or Whatever) chipboard title piece. I must say I'm a bit of a fan at having my title all mapped out for me!

Another new addition to the Greatest View store is the twine with silver or gold thread which adds just the right amount of sparkle without being too obvious.

Sequins hold such specials memories from way back when I was a child and used to play in the dress-up box full of the most amazing gowns adorned with sequins and beads. When Gail sent me some of her latest sequin packs I was flooded with all those old and wonderful memories. How sweet do they look scattered onto pretty paper? I can honestly say this little trend will become a bit more of a regular occurence in my scrapping as I love how they look and also how they give that extra hint of sparkle.
