I got some use out of my MS Punch Around the Page set and took a sheet of POW! glitter paper for a spin. Isn’t it GORGEOUS??? The bottom corner was looking a bit naked to me. I tried a flower and a grouping of buttons and brads, but decided that a spider was what was called for. So I dug out my felt and found an awesome spider in this children’s coloring page website. Isn’t she just ADORABLE??? A little Sharpie, some white paint and Stickles, and a few stitches to hold the three felt layers together, and I have myself a cutiepie little spider. Let me tell you, my beloved Peeps, there are the PERFECT images in cyberspace just waiting for you to find… and coloring pages make for quick and fun paper piecing (or felt) projects. Check it out when your own Voices tell you that your page needs something else.
I used a transparency for my journaling. I used a rounded rectangle drawing shape in Word and made the outline a very light grey and added a shadow to the bottom corner. I then layered two text boxes on top of it, changing the settings to "no fill" and "no outline". I highlighted the text on my quotation and added a relection from the Text Effects. I added my title as Word Art and spun it 90 degrees and added it to the edge of the rectangle. I printed it and cut it out and cut another piece of the silver POW in the same shape. I thought it would be a lot easier than trying to print directly onto glitter paper. Though I am bound to try it one of these days.
