I had given them a heads up that we would be using Frosted papers for class and to prepare to get sparkly! Most of them have been coming to my class for a couple of years and knew that meant I would be using Prisma Glitter on my pages to resemble the snow! I especially love that when I created this layout for class my boys had recently been out playing in the snow so I knew I would have some great pictures to add to this layout and those pictures arrived in the mail today, yea!!

Wow, written out like that seems like a lot of products were used and I guess there really were! As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I attended the CTMH Album Retreat in October, I'll post about that another day. Anyway, I brought home one of the snowflake overlays that they cut from the Artbooking cartridge for a Snow layout we made. I got the idea in my head because of one of the layouts we made there (again will share that with you soon :o) to use the overlay as a stencil for a layout. So I used the snowflake overlay featured on page 76 of the Artbooking handbook as my stencil to make the sparkly snowflake background pages of my layout.
I filled the Spray Pen with water to line 7 and then the Colonial White Re-Inker to line 9 and put a couple of blobs of the Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint in and gave it a good shake to mix it all up. Our Colonial White Exclusive Ink & Re-Inker are a Pigment ink, so it is thicker and great for heat embossing. So I was hoping my thought process on doing this would work and it did!
I then placed the overlay on my Crystal Blue cardstock & spritzed it with the Spray Pen. I removed the overlay and then sprinkled it with a mixture of the Clear Detail Embossing Powder and Prisma Glitter and then I heat set it with the Craft Heater and ta-da sparkly snowflakes background. I hope you like the look of it also!
Until my next post, happy crafting!
