Ethan's 6 mon layout

Items used: Sept Club Q itemsBloody Mary chalking ink,Vintage alphabet quote sheet, white doily from Aug Club Q.
Details: I distressed my white doily by chalking it in Bloody Mary and then adding Glimmer Mist in 'Chocolate covered Cherries.' I used the Vintage alphabet to cut out the 'E' and also put a vintage quote behind a piece of acetate. I used glitter in many places on this layout which I will show you below.

Glue pen + liquid glue:
To get this look I added liquid glue behind the flower acetate (add glue to the duller side). Then I layered on 3 different colors of glitter from PK Glitz. To create Ethan's name: I cut out the E from QQ's Vintage alphabet and then wrote the rest of his name with a glue pen. I sprinkled glitter on top and used PK Glitz's static free brush to clean up my layout.

I also used the glue pen to write '6 months' and then added black glitter on top. This picture shows the folding of my ribbon and also a line of black glitter across the bottom border. To create this look I used a skinny tape adhesive (many out there are made for glitter) then added my glitter on top.
