Let me just start by saying that I am not typically a "glitter girl," but I loved creating this page! Because of the colors in the photos, I grabbed the Sunshine and Good Times collection to begin my page layers with the purple and pink patterned papers that I used on the top half of my 8-1/2" x 11" layout and to mat my photos. I also fussy-cut the "so lovely" phrase from the Yesss Please patterned paper.
Now here's where the fun really started! Below my photo, I started adding glitter by using the fine tipped Moxy white glue to add a shower of dots from the manufacturer's strip of hearts down to the title, creating an ombre effect by starting with dark purple at the top and ending with pink at the bottom.
While my background was drying, I created the "dance" die-cut word on Silhouette, using my favorite sans-serif font, Bebas Neue. After cutting the letters from smooth cardstock, I covered them with double-sided tape using my permanent tape runner, being sure that the adhesive went all the way to the edges. Then, in my glitter tray, I added portions of three different colors of fine glitter: Blossom, Amethyst and Lip Gloss, shaking the tray slightly to get them to run into each other. I carefully placed each letter face-down in the glitter, pressing slightly on the back to be sure that the glitter stuck to the adhesive. The double-sided tape gave a very consistent coverage and didn't require any drying time at all! Afterward, I grabbed the bow and two hearts from the die-cut double-sided stickers and put it in the tray, covering them with the leftover glitter—a great way to not waste any of that gorgeous glitter!
I really love the way this page turned out! My daughter's dance recital called for some sparkle on the page, and the Moxy collection helped me add those perfect, sparkly touches!
