Here's a little bit about my project:
I knew I wanted to use these colors white, ivory, grey, silver and blue. First I was going to make a tag and then that turned into a hanging picture so I stopped by the dollar store and picked up a cheap frame. I am sure I have one at the house somewhere put away in box labeled things to alter but I dunno where the box is, sound familiar. I stamped the glass with silver staz-on, if you look real close you can see, it doesn't show up reall well in pic. I stamped the vanilla background paper with flourishes using versa magic sea breeze. Embossed a frame for the 2013 which was Tim Holtz. Used Tim Holtz grungeboard numbers which I covered in glitter. The rosette is a Tim Holtz die I used some Stampin Up paper for that. The angel stamp is from Stampin Up, as well as the frame around it, those are backed by some Recollections paper and the swirly bling is also by Recollections. I also colored around the swirly frame in a gray color from Copic and added a little color to the angels as well using the same. The angels wings have glitter on them but it just isn't showing up in any of the pics. The white flowers are Recollections, the blue are from I am roses. The banner die is from Tim Holtz stamped with Stampin Up. Border punch on the bottom is Recollections. Misc ribbon and lace. Stampin Up doily die which I misted with shimmer paint. Finally the shiny spray in upper left is pieces I cut from a weighted balloon holder I had and added some glitter stars. I think I covered everything. :)
