Wear Teal Today!

September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.  I have a family member battling this disease and her support group is very important to her.  This layout celebrates the monthly luncheons they share.

I wanted to work in the color teal because it is the awareness color for Ovarian Cancer.  I pulled some Heidi Swapp clear ghost letters out of my stash and colored them with Stream Alcohol Ink from Ranger, adding a touch of the silver mixative. To attach the letters to the layout I spread a thin layer of The Best Glue Ever on the back of each letter. The shine and transparency are wonderful and you can't see any of the adhesive!

I tucked a journaling tag behind the photo, using The Best Glue Ever as the adhesive.  It is wonderful the way it adheres paper without any wrinkles!
I hope you noticed the flourish of rhinestones across the bottom of the layout.  It is from Want2Scrap and it inspired me to add tiny rhinestones scattered all over the layout.  I pladed the tiniest little dots of glue in strategic places then waited for them to dry clear and tacky......then I used my Embellie Gellie to quickly and easily place each 3mm rhinestone.

The final detail was to place the delicate lace circle behind the photo.  It was cut with Spellbinders Splendid Circles die set.  I was tempted to add some of the rhinestones to that, but I resisted because I really wanted it to look like a paper doily.
The paper I used is from Moxxie's new Road to Recovery line.  Check out my blog today for a chance to win a pack of paper from this fabulous line!

Oh!  I almost forgot!  To raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer, Wear Teal Today!!
