a million GIGANTIC THANKS...

for all the wonderful comments...

I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the video & learned some fun techniques...

I sincerely appreciate the time you took to comment here & on the Simon blog too...

I was looking for a photo & found this project...

I don't think I've shared this before...
I created this for CHA back in January, 
for the Ranger booth...

with some art parts florals...
a little residence, that's accented 

that gold flower is clearly for art,

the CFA was painted with Glue N Seal
so that the rock candy crackle paint would stick...

the gold is the gold metallic mixative...
if you click for a larger photo, 
you'll see some extra texture on that flower...
after I painted on the Glue N Seal, 
I sprinkled on some distress embossing powder
while the Glue N Seal was still wet...
(you can use any color embossing powder...the metallic mixative covers the color)

there's some ruler ribbon peeking out from under the flower...

and it's VERY shimmery...
I blasted the whole heart (before embellishing)
with the awesome Perfect Pearls mist...
I used my fav sunflower sparkle...




this heart signifies me...
THANKING YOU...
from the bottom of my heart
for all your support!

Wendy, I just wanted to tell you that I am so in love with your new "Blossom Bucket" embellishments. They are so cool and cute looking. As far as I know there are no other embellishments like these on the market. I love how they have the flat backs so you can add them to any art piece and I think they also have a real artsy type look to them. Love, love, love them!!!
