Hi everyone!!! Jaime Warren with you today to share a fun little layout using Tsukineko and Glue Arts products! Let me start by telling you how impressed I was with the Fireworks mists - WOW!!! Gorgeous, rich color and amazing sparkle. I loved them!

I decided to change up my layout size this time and went with an 8.5x11 instead of my typical 12x12. I love to change the sizes - it helps me when my creativity feels low. I layered my patterned paper over white cardstock (again, changed it up from my usual layering style!)

I adhered the two sheets using my Glue Glider Pro. Once attached I used the spray nozzle from the Tsukineko Fireworks and lightly dripped the mist in random areas around my layout. I let the first color dry and then did the same with the second color.

I then started attaching my photos and cut out patterned paper embellishments using the Glue Glider Pro and U Cut It Foam. I then started layering on my stickers using the U Cut It Foam. Once they were attached I used my paper piercer to make holes for my brads.

I cut out my little clouds from my vellum sheet and attached using Perma Tac Minis. I then used my finger to apply the Tsukineko Glue Pad to my clouds and covered them in glitter.

The next to last step is my journaling which I have "hidden" behind one of my photos. I used a simple shipping tag and then tucked it behind the photo! The finishing touch was layering the entire layout over my last piece of patterned paper - leaving the bottom larger than the rest for a "polaroid" feel!

The final result:

Thanks for stopping by everyone!!!
