Using Sequins

Boy did I ever use all the products for this heritage layout!

First of all I used Best Glue Ever for gluing. For my sequin embellishments I put some tiny dots down and let them get tacky, then I picked up the assorted shaped sequins with the Embellie Gellie and placed them. I got a nice sense of depth from the curve in the sequins.

However once the sequins were down, I decided they were way too bright. I tapped the Perfect Crafting Pouch over the sequins then used a brush to apply some grey paint and brown pigment ink to age the colors to be more in keeping with the slightly faded photograph. The Best Glue Ever was strong enough to hold them in place while I painted.

I inked the slick surface of my vinyl lettering stickers after tapping with the Perfect Crafting Pouch too. Then I used the Perfect Cleaning Cloth to clean up the powdery residue - but not before giving my smudgy reading glasses a nice clean with it so I could see my work again!

Other Supplies Used: Cardstocks and Papers: My Mind's Eye Bohemian Collection, Colorbok, Cosmo Cricket, Recollections; Lettering: Piggy Tales “Mary, Mary Quite Contrary”; Mini-Brads: Recollections; Sequins: My stash; Paint & Inks: Studio G, Caran D'ache Watercolor crayons; Thread: Sulky Premium Mercerized Cotton
