To start, I chose to use black cardstock. On black cardstock the shimmer sprays just shine and look amazing. So, I masked off half the background with plain paper and used a stencil on the remaining side and just misted away in STEEL. Once it was dry, I used the Colour Paste in STEEL through a Whichcraft stencil. In the centre of the page only. This was all I did to create my background.
To create the title I used a piece of chipboard from my collection and roughly embossed it the first time with BLING, then while it was still hot and sticky added another layer. This time I used STEEL. Then finally while it was still hot, I added another sprinkle of BLING. This gives the chipboard a metal like ombre finish without being obvious.
I mounted the entire page on white along with the photo to make it pop. Then I put it all together with a little bit of texture – Thread, punchinella, cheesecloth and finished it with a Charms Creation DIY Star and a Flutterby Designs Flair button.
There is a process video that goes along with this layout so head over to POPLEOPOD on YouTube and check it out.
