Year 19

I was planning on scrapping our 19th Anniversary pictures right away. That was such a special evening, and we had such a wonderful time at the new restaurant Shane serves at along with his friend Ashley. I knew exactly what materials I was going to use, and it fit in wonderfully with Penny's challenge! Her challenge this week is pearls. You should hop over to her blog. She creates digital stamps, and this week she is giving one away FREE for everyone that enters her challenge!
  • CTMH Silhouette paper (that big flower is hand cut from a sheet of paper)
  • Thickers letters
  • random lace
  • CTMH black ink for distressing
  • Liquid Glass
  • Pearls - Creative Imaginations and Pearl Stickers
I wanted to show you some of the layout up close. When I cut out the large flower from Silhouette paper, I covered it with Liquid Glass. That is such a wonderful element on artwork. After it was dry (about 3 hours for this project), I added pearls.

Below you'll see my Thickers up close. LOVE these letters simply because they are glossy. They appear to have Liquid Glass on them, and they are slightly raised in this font. Pearls were the finishing touch on this simple layout that I took from the CTMH how-to book, Reflections.
