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?
