Sparkly Background

I wanted to try something different on this page. I decided to use my Shimmerz to create an ultra-sparkly background cardstock for this layout of my daughter.

I began with a light tan cardstock base. Next I Spritzed the entire sheet using Olive Branch and Treasured Hymn Spritz. I loved the way it looked but I wanted to take it a step further, so I dry-brushed on streaks of Gold Glimmer Blingz and Key Lime Shimmerz. I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out . . . sort of a rustic take on glitz.

Thanks for coming by!
