by the sea {SPARKLE N SPRINKLE}

hello scrappy friends! 

today i would like to share a project i created with the amazing SPARKLE N SPRINKLE glitters and embossing powders - 

"BY THE SEA"



 i used a vintage K & COMPANY collection to create my page.

to alter my background i distressed the edges of the cardstock and the pattern paper, and added extra structure using dimensional paste and THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP masking template.



  i added gesso in the middle of my page to soften the colors. when it was dry, i stamped the large swirls from stamp sets #516 flourishes 1 and #520 flourishes 2 with versamark ink pad. then i sprinkled fiery brown embossing powder [EP369] and heat embossed the stamped images.


  to create my embellishments i die cut various beach themed shapes using CUTTLEBUG dies, white cardstock and  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES adhesive sheets. after my die cuts where ready, i just peeled back the second protective sheet to reveal the adhesive surface and sprinkled different colors glitters and embossing powders on them.

for the seahorses i used the green nugget glitter [G1065] and the sea spray glitter [1023] - amazing colors for any sea themed project!


for the framed shells I used the hit the beach embossing powder [EP394] for the frame and the sunset glitter [G1040]...



  ... and the copper dreams embossing powder [EP268] for the center.


  i created the frame around my third picture using a SPELLBINDERS die, cardstock and adhesive sheets. after i peeled off the second protective sheet, i sprinkled bridal glitter [G1029] to make it sparkle.


to finish off my project i added paper strips, buttons and pearls.



here is a list with all the products you can find in the SPARKLE N SPRINKLE store:

  thanks so much for stopping by today!

have a lovely weekend!

I really like this layout. also getting to your site and seeing all the supplies you used. I guess I'm not too observant, before I just looked at the daily/weekly SNS pix and went on. Glad I clicked on your name.
