Glossy Dimensions

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 13 of us highlighting the Glossy Dimensions Technique as shown on page 23 in the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  If you would like to start from the beginning, please visit this link Debi's Blog.  While there you will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Judy Faye's Blog, you are on the right track!

This is the first page of the layout featuring the Glossy Dimensions Technique.
The second page of the layout featuring flowers made with Close To My Heart's new Cricut cartridge.

I wanted to add some Sparkles to the shiny dimensional elements.

See how it shines!

And, here's how it looks all put together!
Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Melissa's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
