Each Monday, I share my latest layout illustrating a fashion trend from the September 2011 issue of Vogue.
Glitter is already quite popular among scrapbookers. Here’s an example of glitter in fashion:
If I were still 14, I would own that lip color and wear it once or twice. Today, not so much. Regardless, I wanted to not just add glitter to a layout, but be bold about it. Be really bold about it. Here’s what I came up with:
I most likely, will not use glitter this way again. It was a real pain. I used the Triangle Plaid Design template from The Crafter’s Workshop and Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. I love her designs! First, I traced the design onto my cardstock with a pencil. Then I covered each design with diamond glaze. Next, I added some Martha Stewart glitter. I did not have the right shade of yellow glitter, so I used stickles for the yellow.
It was difficult to keep the glitter and glue in the exact spots I needed it. I also had to allow drying time to complete this layout. For the most part, I like the layout. I like the concept. I don’t know that I will ever use this much glitter on layout again, but do like the idea of using glitter more boldly.
