Playing with the new products....

Today I finally had time to play with the new products. I needed a winter photo, so I chose this one of my daughter, Kaitlyn, checking out the snow and ice on the tree in our front yard. I've always enjoyed the fun look on her face, so thought it would be fun to use. I used an 8 x 10 canvas. First I laid down the new snowflake screens from the Winter Crystals, and used a new Glimmer Mist color, twilight, to spray over them. After it dried, I also sprayed a fine mist of one of my favorite Glimmer Mist colors, silver. I also prepared a piece of white cardstock for the photo mat, spraying it with twilight. I inked the edges of the torn photo mat and used a variety of fibers to add interest. I used new Glimmer Chips and Glimmer Glass to finish the look of the project. I chose two white embossed chips that I sprayed with twilight and silver, then inked the edges of those.

I decided on some of the snowflakes, added a fun bling jewel in the center and then decided on the tree off to the side. I also used the transparent decorative corners on three of the corners on the photo. I really liked the dimension of the Glimmer Chips on the canvas along with the transparent look the Glimmer Glass has to offer!

Here's a close up of the bottom right corner. Hopefully you can see some of the beautiful detail the Glimmer Mist adds to the project. It certainly has been fun playing today!!
