Sparkly & Dazzly...New Item
..Okay, so "dazzly" isn't really a word. But doesn't it sound good with "sparkly"?
Posted here is my newest item in my shop. You can read the standard shop description at the bottom.
I really love how the photograph turned out. First, I printed on white cardstock a random screenshot of Edward and Bella laying in the meadow, black and white print setting. Then, I tore the focal point away from the rest of the paper, laid it down and sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Leather. This is a new product I discovered at Archiver's over the weekend. It's really been fun to work with, gives a glittery sheen with color. There are at least 20 different Glimmer Mist colors to choose from. They also have coordinating stencils, which is what I used on the back of this book.
This is a standard size composition book with a very luxe Twilight twist.
Themed "Meadow", the book is covered in front and back with high-quality cardstock featuring lots of texture and sparkle.
Relive the scene that started it all with the gorgeous front cover of this book. A photo of Bella and Edward laying in the meadow is sprayed with brown glimmer mist for an extra-etheral shine. (You can never have too much sparkle, especially where Edward is concerned!)
The outer edge of the photo is sprinkled with a translucent glitter which reminds me exactly of how Edward's skin must have looked in the sun on that day in the meadow.
Adding to the dazzle is rows of both clear and topaz-colored gems.
I have handwritten a passage from Twilight on a tag which is also attached to the front cover. Green organdy ribbon provides the perfect finishing touch.
Insides of book are left as is for reference to the measurement, etc tables listed there.
Edges of both covers are distressed with scissor blades and inked with chocolate in order to give the book a hip vintage feel.
This is your chance to carry a beautiful, sparkly vampire with you on a daily basis - a perfect book for jotting down ideas, dreams and fantasies. Or - simply add a little more dazzle to your everyday to-do lists with this gorgeous book!
