Wow, I have a bunch of stuff to share this holiday season. If you've missed some posts, this year I'm combining my Project Life and Daily December all into my Project Life album. You can scroll through my blog for lots of posts.
Let's get right to today's project. I have had some fun altering a few embellishments to add to my Project December pages and holiday projects in general. It's always fun to challenge myself to make something unique to my albums. This year along with the colors of red, aqua, green and buttery yellow I'm adding red stitching to all my papers + wood grain papers and accents will be sprinkled throughout. So today I'm altering some wood veneer snowflakes, trees, arrows and hearts.
First up if you want to add glitter to wood veneer, Glossy Accents is a great product. You can google it online to find resources. It goes on clear, pools up nicely and dries to a clear, raised finish. I also have a fondness for Martha Stewart glitters. I find mine at Michael's.
First up I applied Glossy Accents to the wood snowflakes using the fine point tip. You want to apply enough so that all the surfaces are covered and you see a slightly rounded liquid finish. But not enough that it all spills over the edge.
Next I sprinkled on some coarse glitter. Glitter just makes every holiday project so sparkly and festive. I love it.
October Afternoon Make it Merry, red & white baker's twine and a stitched notebook tag from my Stitched in Red Kits. The stamped sentiments are from Ali Edwards' Daily December stamp.
tags on my cards a lot lately. They make a great layering accent and they're perfect to add a strip of patterned paper or Washi tape then a few wraps of baker's twine to finish off the card.
Stitched in Red Kit. I love using the vellum because as you can see below, any patterned paper that use can still be seen underneath.
Here's a shot of the Stitched in Red Kit. There are vellum pieces, index cards, a label, a library card, coin envelope, cute stitched notebook paper tags, sacks, twine and a few clips to make some gift packaging.
