This layout so screams “groovy” to me! I thought it fitting since the page was about my grandma, who loves gold and bold florals. I used some of the new Clear Scraps Acrylic Embellishments being released at CHA-S (shipping July 20) along with Design Adhesives from Clearsnap and lots of fabulous gold Clearsnap glitter.
One the flowers, I used Design Adhesives to transfer designs made of adhesive to the acrylic. I then sprinkled the adhesive design with glitter and tapped off the excess. I love how crisp the edges of the Design Adhesives designs are when transferred – this looks like a store bought embellishment or a sticker! On the bird cage, I covered the entire back of it with an Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesive Sheet and then pressed it into glitter to cover completely. I then lightly painted the edges of the acrylic flowers with Smooch Accent Ink in Gold Lame to help define the acrylic shapes against the busy background paper.
This layout is also available in a 3 layout kit in the hydrangeahippo etsy shop.
Happy Scrapping!
