Glimmer Mist, Glitter, Dimensional Magic, Oh My :)))

Hello and a happy Thursday spring morning :) Spring is my favourite season - when I think of spring I think of flowers, butterflies and...fairies. And WOW chipboard has the most beautiful fairy flourish, I fell in love as soon as I saw it.

Here is the fairy flourish - Beautiful!!!

I wanted to do something simple with it but, at the same time, have it stand out on my layout. I started off by painting the fairy with glimmer mist and inking the flourish.


Next, I outlined the fairy with glitter using the same colour as the glimmer mist. I completely covered the wings and flourish in glitter. I love glitter and think it is perfect for chipboard.


I put this aside to dry thoroughly and while it was drying I put my layout together.

Once the glitter dried I covered the fairy flourish in dimensional magic including the glittered bits. This will give the whole lot extra shine, dimension and really make it stand out on the page.


After this dried I adhered it to the layout. I put the fairy flourish on top of a white flower to make it stand out even more.


And here's the completed layout. By keeping the layout simple the fairy flourish gets all the attention and jumps off the page.


I hope you enjoyed this simple technique which is perfect for beautiful pieces of WOW chipboard.
