Clare Dempsey made this fabulous page to celebrate a niece's wedding using Art Glitter and Dreamweaver products to capture the beauty of Autumn! Clare started by using the Dreamweaver Leaf Texture template with Dreamweaver Embossing paste. To get the ombre look she mixed the Gold embossing past with the Amber Glow Metallic Fix and spread it over roughly half of the leaf stencil. She then mixed the Gold embossing paste with the Kimono Red Metallic fix and spread this over the half of the stencil not yet filled. Once the stencil was filled she sprinkled the Ivy Garden powder ONLY on the right half of the stencil (Clare says to be sure to do this while paste is still wet!) and allowed this to dry overnight. In the morning, Clare used a Swiffer cloth to buff off the excess green metallic paste. Clare then trimmed the card stock and cut the piece in half to make a border strip. By slipping the border strip under the circular die cut, no one can see that Clare had some missing leaves on the border strip and that it has a seam!
For the Autumn title Clare used the Dreamweaver double sided mounting paper and cut the frame with the Cricut. To make the application of the Art Glitter neat and accurate, Clare set the blade depth to a 3 and cut ONLY the inside line of the ribbon frame. She then set the blade depth back to a 6 and cut the outside layer of the frame all the way through the double sided mounting tape. Clare carefully pealed up the outside top layer ONLY and applied the Art Glitter with a fine tipped dry brush (see photo below). Maybe it is the painter in Clare, but she likes the control a brush gives her when applying the glitter. She says to use a dry brush and to clean the brush off between colors on some scrap fabric. See how Clare also soaped up the back of the Dreamweaver template and taped it in place before removing the center portion?
Clare flipped down the template and painted the word Autumn in Art Glitter. She carefully cleaned off excess glitter on the template, her hands and her work station and then flipped up the template to apply the white glitter. For the bottom portion of the title "Wedding", Clare cut the title using the Dreamweaver double sided mounting paper, a heavy duty blade, and the Cricut CTMH Artiste Cartridge. She used the dry paint brush technique for applying the different colors again. She then matted it on white paper and hand cut the offset white area.
