Some old and new Glitz

When I first saw the Laced with Grace collectionn from Glitz months ago, my first thought was how perfect the colors were for fall photos.  I espeically love the piece with the plaid print on it.  So this time of year is the perfect time for me to use up these beautiful papers!

I embossed some kraft cardstock that matched my background cardstock with a burlap plate to give my page a bit more texture.

The top layer of the flower I cut using a die and muslin and then misted it with a bit of yellow.  The bottom part is a piece of the "Paper Layers" paper that I rolled and fringed.

I used some of the banner pieces from the cardstock stickers and mounted them on a thin piece of muslin as the string.  I tied knots in between each pennant.

This next page I really wanted to make "fun".  My little guy just loves to watch his mobile....he is mesmerized by it! 

I wanted to pick up on the spinning motion, so I cut a circle frame from patterened paper and then stitched around it with back thread to show movemement.

On the background, I used a herringbone template as a mask and painted over it with a white paint dauber to added a bit more pattern. A little red heart on the left side of the page picks up on the red in the photo and draws your eyes across the page.

Thanks for joining me today!
