Transform your favourite embellishment.

I’m sure that sometimes most of you have such thoughts: ‚Wish I that this embellishment was white not pink’ or ‚Oh my, these letters would be perfect – but this gold glitter?!’ Well I had such situation during my work with ‚Hello, hello’ kits. In the ‚Bonjour’ add-on there were one of my favourite phrases by Heidi Swapp, in silver, silver glitter – it’s not ‚my thing’ if you know what I mean. Anyway, I knew that I adore those stickers so I decided to upcycling them using emboss technique.

I had no idea how embossing powder will be working with glitter surface on such tiny area, but I had to try! I took a special clear embossing ink and I covered whole glitter phrase. Next I sprinkled some Opaque White ZINK embossing powder on it…

I forgot that the foil around the letters will be also covered by the powder. Anyway I took my ZAP heat gun and embossed whole area.

Next I took a craft knife and started to rab the foil just next to the letters. It took a while but I still think that it was worth the effect I get.

I was satisfied when I saw the white, embossed effect :) finally one of my favourite embellishment suit to the project. I was happy! and I started to composing other things on my layout.

Of course I couldn’t miss the watercolour areas. I was painted the top of the page using transparent watercolour papers and blending them with the background. This is always my favourite part!

Next step was stamping. I adore mixing various techniques – embossing, layering, painting and stamping – everything what I need in my work on one layout! It was fun! Besides – I was using beloved Color Theory ink pads, yay!

I collected few favourite stamp words on the acrylic block becasue I want to be sure that all of them will stamp in a perfect rows (well, I am not that perfectionist, but I like to have an order on my project; you have to believe me, that all around me there is always a huge mess during my work).

This is the final effect, I hope you like the idea of changing embellishments :) For me colour is one of the most imporant things in composition, so that’s why I was so happy when I realized that embossing is working with glitter. Hope you will use these trick when you will need it.
