The same with the above brads... most were just silver brads... I love the way that embossing looks on both the buttons and the brads. (Just make sure when embossing brads you have something to hold the brad with, and wait til it cools to touch it... they get hot!!!)

I just finished it tonight. I started working on it Saturday! Between work and everything it has taken a while. The biggest obstacle has been a "scrapper's block"! I came up with the snow globe idea first and loved it. But trying to get everything else has taken some thought, but I prevailed!There is so much that I would like to share about this page... I will start with the snow globe first.
SNOW GLOBE: My page is actually mounted on a 12 x 12 piece of chipboard. I adhered my picture to the back and then a piece of acetate to the front. I put a "layer" of snow inside the globe using flock and then I then covered the chipboard with my paper. Because of the snow falling in the picture, it looks as though someone as shook up the snow globe.
FLOCKING: Flocking is a lot like glitter in how it is applied and used, but it gives you the look of velvet and is fuzzy. *TIP* When you pour your flocking onto your adhesive push it down with your finger before shaking off the excess.
This is a close up of my title. I cut the title using my Silhouette and then ran the letters through my Texture Boutique creating the raised dots that you see. I then just ran and ink pad over the raised paper to give it a little color. I used three blue ink pads... the lightest at the top and the proceeded to the darkest at the bottom. There are a lot of ways to accent/distress dry embossing. My favorites are inking (shown above) or using a sanding block to distress the raised portions. What are some of your favorite ways to use dry embossing?

One: I stamped my frame around my picture and then went over it with stickles. I love the effect and it makes it look like I free hand all the swirls!
Two: Another technique is to stamp your image and us it as a pattern to sew. Here I sewed glass seed beads on to my heart embellsihment for my layout....
