Amazing using Glitter Cardstock


Hi .. Bev here today. "Amazing" is a page for sparkle and shine to go with the costumes. Robin's Nest lines with sparkle and shine are perfect for this group photo. It comes in many shades and colours but the richness of the gold and brown and black and gold with even more plain black were the best layers.  I used some gesso stenciling to blend between the layers.

Supply List:
Robin's Nest Products:
Stickers: Glitter Alpha
Other: gesso, stencil, accents, flowers 
  

Instructions: 
1. To start this page I lay things out (some cut into smaller pieces) and start the layers I think I'd like to see. I might even have a few accents in mind to start.. but can change them up after.


2. In this photo I decided on the layers and added some gesso stenciled in white for texture and depth. I placed it above and below the photo between the layers. 


In the photo above you can see the gesso stenciling. 


In this view you can see the gesso stenciling below.


3. In this section I share the accents done on either side of the photo and also a small cluster of flowers and accents to lower left.


4. I added gold alpha letters and also a gold striped accent under the background paper.


Close up view of the cluster.


5. This showcases a few more accents in the upper right of the photo.

Use as many or as little amount of accents. Design to you tastes.

UP NEXT: While creating dance pages I also did this quick and easy Fold style page to hold the certificate.  

Supply List:
Robin's Nest Products:
Accents: Alpha letters, die cuts, Journal tags
Other: lace, cardstock

Instructions:
1. Starting with a full 12x12 cardstock base for your background..... cut your front papers in half to glue the full top piece down and on the bottom only glue the outer edges and very thin line across the bottom. Extra support can be added by stapling along the 3 sides for reinforcement.

 

2. Now accent the page any way you like. I added lots of Robin's Nest accents... the star, fireworks and journal tag.


3. If you have any photos, lace or metals .. go ahead and add them.  I also added a lace border where the 2 paper meet in the middle.. but be sure to leave the slot open to add the documents etc.

Thanks for visiting today..... see you again soon,
