I love those 'anchoring' samples, Anna.

OF, off to find a plate. Laughing

next, i'm masking with glimmermist - if you don't want to mask or use glimmermist, you might have decided to use pp as your anchor. if that's the case, feel free to get on with that while i glimmermist... Wink

i have a very classy glimmermisting box (an old xray tray, so if you work at a hospital with a radiography department, you could go and chat them up and see if they've got any old trays you can scab. Wink ).


i used vintage pink to spray around the plate - i sprayed a little bit heavier in the top right and bottom left corners - it gives the page a bit more flow, i think.


once it's dry, i put the photos and title back on, just to check how it looks - i keep doing this until everything is stuck down! Very Happy

the next step might be a bit difficult if you don't have your title ready. Wink i'm using my cut out title to mask, and i'm going to layer the masked title and the mask itself.

i just put the title where i want it...


...give it a few squirts with some silver glimmermist (this works best with a light colour - trust me on this... Wink go on - ask me why the title is orange!)...


then when you take the mask off, you can see the nice subtle outline.


i decided to outline the title - just quick and sketchy - to make it stand out a little more.

I've Glimmermisted, but must dash off for now. Hopefully I'll be back in about 30 minutes. GM will be dry. Smile

if you're not using glimmermist, you could use cardstock alphas, and ink, or you could ignore that step.

next, we'll be making a flower! if you'd rather raid your stash for a ready made flower, go right ahead!

these fluffy flowers are all the rage at the moment - there are tutorials all over the net for them, and who am i to miss the boat? Laughing

i punched six scallop circles from my sacrificial book - put a hole in the middle now, so you're not trying to get a brad through the floofy flowers later. Wink


scrunch each layer up and unscrunch a few times until they look suitably fluffy.


layer and hold together with a brad.


easy peasy, yes? Wink

next - to colour your flower! you can leave it if you like, or just ink the edges, but i used the light pink again to give it a little bit of colour in the middle.


then i glimmermisted the title with a red which goes nicely with the pink (i'm picky about pink and red together... Wink )


...and while the flower is still wet from the first lot of glimmermist, i dunked the edges into the overspray from the title.




having the flower still a bit damp means that the darker colour blends into the lighter colour nicely.

I'm back! Have set up DD (4) with all her 'scrapping' needs - well actually, she is more into card making - so hopefully, apart from 'Mum look at what I've done' I MIGHT get some peace for a little while. DS is in front of one of his favourite tv shows.

I will have to compromise all over the place with this LO - but I'm loving your ideas Anna. THANKS! And I bought two glimmermist today - tattered rose and silver. Haha, took a rough guess of the types of colours you might use Wink

OK, enough chatting. Off to find photos and get cracking!

I am finding this very interesting, I think that this is exactly the sort of class that I am interested in, but I didn't realise that until I started reading.
I have to go and entertain children now, but I will be looking in later.

I've seen lots of people use it, but I never have. Looks potentially messy and disastrous to me. But I'll give anything a go. Just need to find somewhere to do it......
