Too Cute To Spook
Be sure to stop by the Glue Arts blog every day this week to see what their designers have created with the Glowing Collection.
Here is Cristine with today's Glowing project:
I was so excited to break into my Glowing collection to scrap a couple pictures of my hubby, girls and nephew from Halloween last year. This collection isn't over-the-top Halloween-y and can be used for non-spooky layouts/cards/projects.
Here is the layout I created:
A little tidbit of information...The paper on the circle background started off like this:
I didn't want my layout to be too orange, so I cut out a bunch of the diamonds from the paper and only used non-predominantly orange pieces. It was a bear to put together, but I am IN LOVE with the outcome. I used Glue Arts new Glue Glider Pro to secure all of the diamonds to the paper. It kind of turned out like a big moon in the middle of the page. I love the texture that cutting out the diamonds and spacing them apart adds to the page.
I used a lot of the Glowing line's extras to embellish this page.
I also pleated some natural ribbon (secured with Glue Arts adhesive squares - LOVE THEM!!) to add some dimension and texture to the layout. One trend that I've been hesitant to tackle is the whole pin craze. I happened to have some pins in my sewing box that went with the Halloween theme, so I popped some into the ribbon. Might not be the right way (is there a right way?!), but I like how they look. I used some of Glue Arts U Cut It dimensional adhesive to make the die cut images pop out over the pleated ribbon.
How cute are these little bats?! Since I thought the big circle looked like a moon, it would only be appropriate to put a couple bats around it. I used my Silhouette to cut them out.
This is a close-up of the details on the page. I had some bat and ghost brads collecting dust that I thought would be cute in the center of the flowers. I'm really happy with the way this layout turned out.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
