Spiegelmom Scraps Blog Hop Day 2

Hello everyone and welcome to day 2 of a very special Triple Hop weekend with SpiegelMom Scraps!  I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer for this weekend! Today is all about SEQUINS!!!!  There are a ton of fun and beautiful sequin mixes in the store HERE.

The SpiegelMom Scraps Sparklers and I are rocking this weekend with 3 bodacious blog hops; Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I'll be here for Friday and Saturday.  For today's hop, you should have arrived here from the SpiegelMom Scraps Blog.

I was inspired by the pretty peach sequins in the Peachy Sherbet pack, so I dug through my washi tape collection and found a few to work with for my layout.  I already had my photos printed in a vertical photo strip, so I knew creating a vertical design would be fun.  I used four different washi tapes to create my background design.  I used a little bit of white gesso and some Shimmerz Coloringz and Dazzlerz to add some teal and peachy orange to the background.  That messy circle die cut is from a freebie at SpiegelMom Scraps this weekend, so you can get it for yourself!  I also used a shiny gold doilie from the store as well as a few pink sequins from the Let's Be Mermaids pack.

This is my title because that's what my mom, sister and I were doing in the photos...haha.  Most of the washi tapes I used are from Michael's, and these alphas are from Elle's Studio and American Crafts.  I added some Gold Color Shine to these selfies to bring out the pops of gold I have going around the layout.

I love how the Shimmerz Dazzlerz spread so easily with a dry brush.  I smudged some on with a palette knife and then blended it until it was dry with a flat brush.  It went on nicely over the tapes, too.  Here you can see some of the pretty sequins.

I love this messy circle die cut!  It's so versatile and can be worked into any project.  And check out the pretty gold doilie...I need about a million of those!  My flair is from A Flair For Buttons.  I only used one sheet of patterned paper here, and I also added some tangled thread.

I did a bit of machine stitching for added detail.  I also used a few clear stickers from a MAMBI sticker book.  Those pink hearts were punched from washi tape on white cardstock.  That's a great way to make your own embellishments.

Here's one more close up of the right side.  I love the dimension of the messy circles!
