Friends With Flair

A quick post today, it's really late! If you're here for FWF make sure to start at the Unity blog so you don't miss any of the fabulous creations!! There is a TON of talent!


This layout is FULL of firsts! :) It was my first time ever, using corrugated cardboard for a background. As you can see, I'm not very good at stripping it..I wanted a little bit more of the paper to stay on. I get either all or nothing when I try it!

The glimmer mist is hard to see, but if you click on the image it may work better...it's homemade glimmer mist using luminarte! It actually turned out really well..and then I added paint to try and thicken it up..nope...not a good idea! ;)

The ribbon flower was SOOO much fun to make... I am so gonna try more of these... I spritzed the ribbon with my homemade glimmer mist before rolling it up!

I have work today, so I'll be back later tonight to check out all your wonderful blogs, can't wait! Enjoy the rest of FWF Hop!

This LO is so fun! You did a fantastic job with it. I have never even used the stuff you used for your background so you are doing better than me! And that flower ribbon is so cool!

Way to stretch yourself with lots of firsts -- always fun. Great layout, and love the ribbon flower. Way to go on making your own glimmer mist, too.

I never thought of using corrugated cardboard for a background like that. It looks awesome! I love your flower. I have a bunch of twinkling h2os. I should try making my own glimmer mist.
