Adding a Little Sparkle to Your Digital Layouts
The holiday season is upon us and I can help but get a bit giddy at all the sparkle and glitter that decorates the season. Winter is magical with a little sparkle and I hope you agree when you see how I added a little sparkle to my page.
I love picking out the sparkly ornaments and enjoy the hunt for ones to add to my growing collection. I found this beauty at a local store recently:
And can you image how thrilled I was to find a little extra sparkle on some traditional poinsettia plants:
Since I enjoy so much sparkle and glitter this time of year (well, anytime of year to be honest) I naturally like to add a little sparkle to my pages.
Here’s what I created using Melissa Bennett’s contribution and one of the fabulous and versatile templates from Scrapping with Liz.
You will note I added some sparkle with Melissa’s “Winter” title and Vero’s gold sparkly snowflake. These are both available “as is” when you add all the pieces of the Winter Magic kit. My other trick to add a little sparkle is using one of Mommyish’s Winter Magic Layer Styles. These styles add instant glitter and sparkle when applied to almost any element.
For example, I started with a snowflake from Red Ivy Designs and applied one of the Mommyish styles that I used under the flower. Here I show the before (“as is” from the kit) and after so you can see how easy it is:
For even more inspiration, check out the decorations this year at the White House. The First Lady has envisioned a glittery and sparkly wonderland. I love the tree in the Blue Room best, but I may be biased since a friend of mine was on this tree decorating team:
Enjoy this season of extra sparkle and add a little to your pages!
Everyone at Scrapaneers sends wishes for a happy, healthy and creative New Year!! We’ll see you in 2018. 🙂
