This week for my project I thought to make a nice elegant lay out.
I started by cutting a large layout sized circle from Glitter Brown Rope. I covered the edges with pieces of strong double stick tape. Then I used a Recollections scalloped border punch on Getaway Swirl. I ran the scaollped strips through a Fiskars paper crimper attaching it to the edges of the layout in a ruffled pattern.
Next I used a Fiskars threading water border punch on the back side of Autumn Orange Fleur. I ran these thin strips through the paper crimper as well. I used thin strips of clear tape to secure the final ruffle in place.
I cut the floral design and turkey from Glittered Turkey with fine precision scissors and set aside. I layered a variety of Glittered Chipboard Leaves onto the layout with strong tacky glue. Then I inserted the floral design where needed. The center photo spot is made up from both sides of Gold on Creme. Once all the elements were in place, I attached the turkey with strong glue.
I embellished the turkey and floral design with a collection of colored glitter glues. Then I applied Tombo glue to the still exposed tape areas and filled in the spaces with Flame Dew Drops.
