This weeks Tuesday Techniques is about how to use Glimmermist on the GORGEOUS little Glimmermist Collection Kit which Adrienne & Pauline made up, I have some instructions of how to use the products....
GLIMMERMIST on Glimmer Glass Instructions

1. Using a paint dabber, brush or dabb the paint over the top of the Glimmer chip - it needs to be quite rough so it leaves some bubbles or a brushed effect and let it dry.
2. Once dried spray Glimmermist directly onto the paint glimmer glass and allow to dry further, naturually
3. Ink around the edges of the glimmer glass
4. I have applied some Kindy Glitz to the glass to give it some extra texture.
5. Using a heat gun, heat the chip a little and then bend it into shape quickly and then let it cool down, to form the final shape.

6. I have applied some Kaiser Bling to the centre of the butterfly

GLIMMERMIST on Glimmer Chipboard Instructions

1. You will need two different colour Glimmermist for this one, apply the first one (I applied the Green one first)
2. Once dried, apply the 2nd colour (I used the Blue one) spraying on some of the areas only thus to combine both colours together
3. Ink around the edge using Pinecone Ink, to give it a bit of deeper definition.
4. You can further embellish using Kindly Glitz or Bling

GLIMMERMIST on Prima Flowers Instructions

This is definately one of my favourites and it is sooooo easy.
1. Decide on which flowers you want to use and how
2. Ink the inside of the flowers as well as the edges (I
have used Pinecone Ink as well as a Deep Pink
Brilliance Ink)
3. Spray a decent amount of PEARL Glimmermist on
the flowers and allow to dry.
4. Once dried - assemble your flower and place it on
your layout

TIP - use a make up applicator to apply the ink it works really well and you can get a packet of 10 for $2 from the $2shop.

GLIMMERMIST on Heidi Swapp Sheer Alphas Instructions

1. Apply a coat of paint directly onto the Heidi Swapp Sheers and allow to dry completely
2. Spray a coat of Glimmermist over the paint and wait to dry.
3. Use a little Pinecone Ink around the edges and apply Alpha's to your page.

GLIMMERMIST on Maya Road Chipboard Flourish - Instructions

1. Spray Graphite Glimmermist directly onto the Flourish - you will see it dries very quickly on this Chiboard and looks absolutely FABULOUS.
2. Add a little Pinecone Ink around the edges and apply to your page.

GLIMMERMIST on Tissue Paper & Patterned Paper - Instructions

1. On Tissue - Crunch the tissue paper up, spread it out and then spray some Graphite Glimmermist onto the Tissue Paper and let it dry,
2. On Pattern Paper - Spray a couple of sprays randomly on the paper, and allow to dry.

So there you go girls, loads of different ways to use up that FABULOUS Glimmermist you have sitting on your table....
Happy Scrapping

Scrap Tech Tuesday - THOSE paper scraps

Hi everyone welcome to Scrap Tech Tuesday. Now if you are like me you have files or boxes full of your scrap pieces of paper from various projects that you just can't throw out because they are just soooo pretty . Here are some ideas for using a little up.

On this first layout I have used my Marrakech scraps in the background and have made lollipop flowers which are great for boy pages. They are very easy to do and can be altered heaps of different ways.
First cut out three circles in different sizes.
Then join together with a brad.
Before joining them you can crumple the circles and distress/ink the edges to get a grungy look.


In the next layout I have just ripped some bits of paper up and formed a circle with them and then did a bead circle over the top. The layout also features flowers and leaves created by me using the cuttlebug and some scraps


Another way to use up some scraps is to do some fun collage like in this card which you could do on a layout too.


Happy scrapping with your scraps!!

Layouts and cards using Basic grey 6 x 6 paper pads

A lovely kit arrived at my place just over a week ago after 8pm by courier and so I have been creating . Now this might be a long post .

The products that I am highlighting are :

1/2 pack Basic Grey Ambrosia 6x6 paper pad
1/2 pack Basic Grey Eva 6x6 paper pad

These can be found at the Scrappin' Patch shop for only $5 for a half pack here are the links

http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5364 (Eva)

http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5363 (Ambrosia)

Pink Paislee has 8 x 8 pads you can use in a similiar way and they are $4 a pack.

http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5126 (pop fashion)
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5116 (vintage moon)
You can do heaps with these papers including 12 X12 layouts,cards smaller layouts and they would be awesome to do mini albums with.

My first layout is using the Ambrosia papers. With this layout I just used three of the papers as they were for my background I then cut out the black scalloped paper for the two little trims above and below the photo. With the fifth and sixth paper I used my fiskars finger knife to cut out the flourishes and butterflies.


Other products from my kit and my stash used on the layout can be found here
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5236 (ambrosia element stickers)
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5981 (frangipani's)
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=4910 (mm tiny letters)
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5798 (crystal brads)
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5798 (hambly transparency journal spots)

The next layout to show you is using the Eva range - this time I have ripped and layered the papers and added element stickers, flowers and bling.


Products used:
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5282 (Eva element stickers)
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/index.php?cPath=708_761 (silk flowers)
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5566 (bling brads)
http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/product_info ... ts_id=5920 (bling flourishes)

Now the Eva range looks very girly but I have done a boy layout using the papers. This time I cut them and used my threading water punch on one of them. I also made lollipop trees by cutting circles out of them and layering them. I have also used some element stickers on this layout.


Here is another Eva layout where I have cut the papers in L shapes and adhered them onto the cardstock and covered the gap in the middle with the photos - so I have a smaller square of each paper to use on another project. The other piece of paper I have used my finger knife to cut out the bird and the flourish under it.


The white alphas used in the above can also be found at the shop

The final layout I have done is another boy one using the grey papers in the ambrosia pad. I have cut them in half and joined them together lengthways to give the impression of 12 X 12 strips and have hidden the joins under the photos.


I still have a few pages of the pads left and have done these two cards as well



These pads are definitely very versatile and by combining them with a few embellishments and cardstock you can make a heap of projects. I had fun doing these layouts and hope these inspire you!!
