Bling it on!

My little Sophie-girl is all about the bling -she is a princess through-and-through. This week's challenge at Practical Scrappers was perfect for her pictures - we had to use bling in any way, shape or form! You've got to check out what the amazing design team has been coming out with lately - awesome work over there!

For this layout, I used blingy shapes & swirls (Zva Creative & Michael's), glitter chipboard (K&Co.) & stickers (Making Memories), and home-made glimmer mist that I created using Perfect Pearls (Stampin' Up) and food coloring. I also used Dollar Spot ribbon and a sheet of CTMH cardstock, plus one of my favorite recent pictures of her, one that Andrew took of her while they were just joking around last fall.
Perfect Pearls or pearlescent acrylic paint
Warm Water
Food Coloring or Re-Inker
Small, Travel-Sized Spray Bottle
Add 1-1/2 to 3 TBS warm water to small spray bottle. Add a small scoop of Perfect Pearls and 4-5 drops of food coloring or re-inker of your choice. Shake well and spray! You can also use a pearly acrylic paint - pre-colored if you want - for a similar effect.
The layout was also inspired by this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. They also have a great challenge blog with new prizes each week. As far as sketch blogs go, this is one of my favorites.
Thanks for stopping by!

Love the sparkle! I have been meaning to try to make my own glimmer mist so we will see how that goes! Great job!
