Bling Challenge ........

and whatever other challenge I can fit this into :)

There is so much bling on this page, that you nearly have to wear sunglasses to look at it IRL, also IRL it looks so much better!!!

This is a once in a million shots. Aimee was playing on the floor, I was sat on the sofa, I asked her to smile and just held the camera in front of her, I didn't even look at what I was taking, I was so surprised when I saw this shot! Her eyes are so blue in this photo!!!!

On the purple paint behind the photo there is glitter

Where I have used Crystal Stickles=

Around the edge of the card stock
Where I have torn the pp (patterned paper)
All the flowers on the pp
Over the writing, moon and stars on the overlay
Around the edge of the photo
Around the letter A
On every flower there is a blob/smear somewhere
On the circle brads and star brads in the middle of the flowers
On the star charm

LOL I think I have mentioned everything!

The photo and pp is under the overlay!

The flowers, letter A, swirl and charm are on top of the overlay!

I have dry brushed purple paint on the card stock to use as a matt for the photo! While the paint was still wet I sprinkled some fine glitter onto the paint and left it all to dry! When I put the overlay on the paper the words, moon and stars got lost, so I dry brushed white paint on the underside of the overlay! While I had the paint out I dry brushed around the edge of the photo!

I then used a Precious vellum sticker on the photo as it seemed to fit the page!

The star charm was off a belt that Chloe had which broke and she gave it to me (everyone in my family is now magpie trained, lol). I used a silver brad to cover the hole on the top, put some pva glue on the back of the star, stuck them into place and covered both of them with Stickles!!!

I think that's everything!!! This page originally had some crochet flowers that I had made, for a challenge, but nothing went right last month, I then went off the idea of the flowers so the page above is what happened!

TFL and reading the loooooooong explanation!!!


Edited to say
I can also fit this page into Three Product/Technique Challenge and April Scrap a Family Member-Daughter.

My 3 Techniques are, painting, paper tearing, and homemade embellishments!

The new technique is the bling swirl!

Scrap a family member - daughter - Aimee is 4 and my youngest daughter! Some of my flowers are punched out!

Finshed A!

After cutting out the A, painted it the colour I wanted with Acyclic paints! While it was still wet I sprinkled fine silver glitter on it! When the paint had dried I outlined it with Crystal Stickles (I love this one). I left that to dry! I then covered the inside bit with Glossy Accents, which really highlights the glitter and gives a lovely glossy finish! Unfortunately it looks better IRL and I have taken so many photos of this page, too much reflections for it to photograph it properly!


Finshed Swirl!

I have photographed the swirl how it looks on the page.

I have put a piece of black card under the overlay in this photo!
