with lots of beautiful sparkly things! Hello! I am so very excited and happy to be Guest Designing for Spiegalmom Scraps this month of May! And what a month it is going to be! My name is Sara Mishler. You can find on most social media sites as Sara Scraps. I hope to bring you some projects this month to inspire you to play with lots of little sparkly sequins…because I LOVE them. For my first project I decided to create some of my own embellishments and alter some of the wood tags in the shop too. I have a You Tube video that shows my process-
And here are some cute close- ups
First up, I created these hearts with the Red Slipper Sequins ( I absolutely LOVE them!) And with the help of a handy heart punch, they weren’t very difficult. I think you could definitely use my technique with any kind of punch- hexagons or circles would be especially cute! Just punch your shapes with white card stock, get your favorite sequin glue ( I used Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive) and glue the sequins around the edge. I placed mine on a white card stock background so you really don’t see the punched shape, just the sequin hearts. I would love to see your creations if you try this!
The next embellishment I altered where these Amy Tangerine Wood Veneers
I backed the tag with white cardstock, filled the heart with a thin layer of Scotch Adhesive, and then filled the heart with the red slipper sequins. I’m a patient scrapper, so as a final step, I filled the top in completely with Glossy Accents (so the sequins wouldn’t fall out at all) and left them to dry overnight.
I hope you will stop by next Wednesday..I’m going to be playing with some watercolors and lots of fun things! AND I will be hosting a challenge for NSD and playing along all weekend at the Spiegalmom Scraps FB Event! Hope to see you there!
Have A Lovely Day!
