This month I was working on three projects. In each project I did something a little different with the wooden shapes.I did work with the pearlescent wood shapes technique, as well as stamping on the wood shapes and finally just using them as accessories.
There are 2 layouts, both are just 1 12x12 page. I did this because I haven't printed all of my pictures so this allows me to manipulate the second page of the two page spread as far as how many pictures wells to put on it.
|This is a close up of the lightly pearled shell. You can't see the shimmer super well in this picture.|
|This is a close up. When the gold rush was first applied it looked fairly bright and more orange. I like how as it set it faded some.|
|This was a wood badge button in the top corner of the layout. I took lagoon with a silver dollar stamp to this button.|
|here I took some liquid glass over some of the spirals of the sun. I then put glitter over it, by doing it this way I was able to determine how glittery I wanted it to be.|
