I took advantage of American Thanksgiving coming a little early because of how the calendar fell this year by finishing and/or embellishing and/or remaking some rejects in my Thanksgiving box. Here's a simple card that was lying there unfinished with only the patterned paper leaf cut out and glued to the patterned paper covered card base. I had a bunch of these!! What to do to dress them up????
|I am extremely proud of myself that I drew this leaf free-hand!!! I cut out a pattern from my drawing to use for tracing onto patterned papers for autumn leaf cards. :)|
A couple months ago I bought a few colors of Tonic Studios - Nuvo Crystal Drops that I hadn't been brave enough to try yet. I wasn't sure how hard it would be to control the size of droplets I was dispensing onto my project. I did a practice run on a scrap and it was really easy!!! You squeeze these out right onto your project, although I guess you could do them on something non-stick and then glue them onto your card or mixed media piece. Following the pattern of this whimsical doodled background, I went a little crazy with the drops. LOVE the effect!!! I didn't have the Nuvo in gold that matched my glitter, so I used copper penny for a mixed metal look. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! :) What do you think?
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving your sweet comments!! You totally make my day.
