Just the right amount of Glitter

Good day to you all! Today I am sharing with you two of my layouts. Both of which I only used one shade of P K Gltiz Glitter. Shocking I know. Usually I have multiple colors and lots of sparkle like in a project I will be sharing with you later this week… I used over ten colors of glitter on one project! However, today I challenged myself to hold back, choose one specific color that accented the entire layout and to use it in specific places to add a sweet and simple elegance.

Guess what! It worked! I truly love these layouts. Sweet and elegant indeed. The first one I would like to show you has several pictures of our family. Here I used P K Glitz’s NST Copper Glitter to accent the corners of the layout and the butterflies. Working with just those few elements added a since of formal framing to the layout and a splash of whimsy and playfulness with the butterflies. Both of which accent the photos perfectly.

The second layout is one of my daughter in her bath when she was a baby. The color of glitter I chose for this layout was Gold Leaf China. I also used two Ritzy Ditzy Glitz colors, Copper and Silver. I lightly spritzed the background shape with the copper and then changed the white flowers by heavily spritzing them until they were completely silver.

The title was cut out on my cricut with sticky paper and then glittered with the Gold Leaf China. I also used my Quicky Glue Pen to accent some of the Cosmo Cricket stickers. One is the boarder sticker and the other the LOV3 one. You can see both of them and one of the silver flowers in this closeup below.

Thank you for taking the time to view our blog. Have a wonderfully glitzy day!
