Dream a little dream…

I must apologise for my absence, unfortunately my back has decided that it doesn’t want to play nice right now and life has been a little…difficult :) Even though I haven’t made anything for days (getting withdrawals!) I thought that I should share some of my Dream mini book with you. I still have one page and the back cover to do, but I will show you some of what I have finished. I am so happy with the way this turned out and I don’t think it would have been possible to have more fun doing it! So, here are some of my favourite bits…

The first two photos are the cover and the inside of it. The rest of the photos are peaks of some of the embellishments in the book. The book itself is a Kaiser Key Plate album that I picked up a while ago at one of the online craft stores I shop at….I think it was Anna’s Craft Cupboard…they were having a sale of Kaiser stuff and I picked up a few different albums to play with. I’ve got a great square scalloped album that I plan to do next. Anyway, if you want to know where anything came from just ask in the comments ;) But I do have to warn you that a lot of the stuff I used in this album came from blog candy and RAK’s that people have so kindly sent me…like that chipboard crown in the last photo…it came from the lovely Lauren a while ago and I’ve been hoarding it for just the right project…thanks Miss Lauren :)

Now onto something completely different….on Monday I got a lovely parcel of goodies from Anna’s (there was another sale!) and in it was some Tattered Angels Glimmermist. My colour choices were heavily influenced by Heidi Swapp, who did a great tutorial on using it…it was on Ali Edwards blog here. I now NEED some masks and some Invisibles chipboard!!!!!

Anyway, my question is…have you ever used it??? If you have used it before and you have any useful tips or hints then PLEASE leave me a comment. I’ve had a little play with it, but I thought I’d ask you guys what you think of it and how you use it. So thanks in advance for your advice :)

OK, that’s it for today. If you are interested I’ll show you some more pics of the mini book, but hopefully I can get in and make something new very soon! Hope you all have a nice Thursday :)

Oh chicky this is just fabulous. It is inspiring me to get onto a couple of mini's that I have been meaning to do for ages but haven't got my A into gear.

I use Glimmer Mist - I got the Pearl colour. If you go to The Next Level Challenge blog their first challenge was making Lollipop flowers with GM. I generally just spray on flowers to give a shine. There is another product out there called 'Shimmerz Mist' - very similar and they have a handy little video on their blog that you could watch to get inspiration. Hope that helps.

Can't help you on the glimmer mist...but your book is full of cool embellies, papers, and sentiments! I can see the fun you have had with it.

I hope your back will cooperate! There is just no comfortable position when your back hurts :(

Hugs,
June
