another box of joy. being on a design team is great! i get a box of products and free license to create. this month's box was filled with basic grey's "sweet threads" line - "SWEEEEET"
my big discovery with this project was making "smooshie flowers". take a close look at the flower details and check out what happens when you mist and then smoosh up die-ut paper. the result is wonderfully whimsical. add a little ink or glitter, and the final look is so sweet. and check out my newest zipper flower! i used maya road's zipper trim and created a dahlia.
the other bit of fun was working with maya road's canvas dress forms. layers of tattered angels glimmer mist, add a cool stamp for texture, and you end up with a beautiful accent. add a couple of stick pins, and you also get a unique place to mount some small pics or keepsakes!
and finally, why not tuck away some fancy tags? a matted photo can become a great pocket to hold more photos, journaling, and keepsakes!
overall, i had a blast making all these elements, and using so many different products! stay tuned tomorrow for a whole minibook made of "sweet threads", zippers, glimmer mist and more!
