Vacation Memories with Authentique

Today'a Project
Supply list
Art Glitter Ultrafine Transparent Crystal #85 Glitter
Art Glitter Ultrafine Transparent Tide Pool #218 Glitter
Art Glitter Microfine Opaque Black Wing #507 Glitter
Art Glitter Microfine Opaque Gold Tone #516 Glitter
Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive
Authentique Seasons: Summer papers
Photo frame

Begin by gathering the supplies needed and coordinating photos. 

I used the photo mat included with the frame as a template to create mat out of Authentique Seasons: Summer paper.  I cut the photo cut outs 1/16 inch larger than the original mat.
I used Art Glitter dries clear adhesive to add glitter to the bevel of the original mat that came with the frame.
Using Art Glitter dries clear adhesive I added Crystal Glitter to the chevron pattern. 
Using micro tip scissors I cut out the banner elements from a beautiful sheet of Authentique Paper.

I created a glittered mat for the flags using Gold Tone Micro fine glitter.

I used double sided adhesive paper, cut with a die cut machine and Black Wing glitter to add "Clearwater Beach 2012" to the frame.
