Hello once again fellow scrappers! Kay here with a page consisting of both Clear Scraps & Authentique goodies! This week we're teaming up with Authentique & what a great combo this makes! I was provided with the "Peaceful" collection by Authentique & what perfect timing with Christmas just around the corner. This gave me the opportunity to scrap our yearly Chirstmas photo--something I don't usually get to do until about July!
For this page I used a couple of snowflake pages from Clear Scraps Snowflake Mini Album. When it comes to these mini albums you don't necessarily have to use them as an album--the pages can also be used as embellishments as shown here.
Step 3: This step is optional. You can actually leave your snowflake as is! It depends on your project. I needed my snowflake to stand out just a bit more. So I added this additional step. With a small paint brush, I lightly painted white acrylic paint onto my Diamond Dust. I also dabbed a bit of Silver metallic paint. With these two paints my snowflakes stood out a bit more.
How you place the snowflakes onto your project is up to you as well. You can place them with the Diamond Dust side facing up or with the Diamond Dust facing down. I decided to place my snowflakes with the Diamond Dust side facing down. Since the snowflakes are acrylic, you can still see the Diamond Dust & paint--I felt that placing the snowflakes this way fit my page better.
