Grateful GLIMMER!

I'm ALL about the glimmer, babies!

I had WAY too much fun last month, when Dawn from W9, suggested we play with some glimmer, sparkle, shimmer ~ whatEVER you want to call pearly, inky, spray magic that takes paper from PAPER to P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N!!! And I have to say, I just haven't been able to get enough!!!

Should I spare you the details on how I've been ...uh... "collecting" those fabby lil' sprayers from Ranger/Tim Holtz...? {{HELLO, weird science!}} I've been making POTION! So, yeah, I'll spare ya. But if you haven't played with pearly powder, ink, H2O & mist.... Oh, honey, baby, sweethearts! I'm full blown ADDICTED! {Thank YOU, T!m, and countless others, who have inundated YouTube and GOOGLE with hilarious, informative and downright Oscar caliber performances: recipes, suggestions and tutorials...} MOST of the ingredients... to get you GOING!

That's how I got here:

Never mind, that the main image is a "leftover" from some stamping, for a card I made, like a YEAR ago... But those LEAVES...{Holy FESTIVAL of glimmer, shimmer, pearly wonder!}... THEY are new! Compliments of Tim's latest Sizzix release.... die cut HEAVEN - infinitely possible paper craft possibility...OMG {I love these!}...! I sure hope you can SEE just how glimmered up THEY are: I took the liberty of mixing my, personal potions HEAVY on the pearl powder.... Yeah, baby!!!

So, THAT'S how I've been getting busy with my paper craft, lately. A bunch of organizing, a LOT of "collecting" and PLENTY of glimmer, shimmer and shine! Hope your Autumn is golden and sparkly!
