Hello and welcome to this month’s Sparklers Design Team sequin release blog hop! Whew, that was kind of a mouth full! I’m extra excited this month because DT Sparkler Lisa Kingston had a beautiful vision, and that was to create some sequin mixes inspired by some of her favorite artwork! So naturally I said, “Go for it!” I must say, she’s done a fabulous job on these mixes, which are shown below my layout 🙂
Here’s my layout created with some of my favorite American Crafts cardstock, a stunning copper embossed floral paper from an American Crafts collection, Shimelle phrase thickers (hello and lovely),Shimmerz Quit Yer Winen’, and the fabulous new On Pointe sequin mix (only I picked out all the little metallic copper ones!!) I did a ton of fussy cutting for this, obviously. I cut out every flower from that stunning coppery embossed paper and it was SSSOOO worth it! I did some light mixed media work on the background, using the muted purplish Shimmerz Quite Yer Winen‘. I added some dark purplish tread in a few spots and called it good! I also used the sketch below by Stuck Sketches?! as my jumping point!! I love the diagonal design.
Below are the pieces of artwork which inspired Lisa to choose the sequin colors . All of this month’s sequins are above and the inspiration pairings are just below!
