A Layout and Some Announcements

Hi everyone! You didn't think I disappeared, did you? :) Sorry, life just got really busy the past couple of days. I'm sure you know how that is.

For this layout, I took a printed transparency and colored in only a portion of it. I used Sharpies to color it, but there are several things you could use.

Then I used this on my layout, and I outlined the colored portions with 3D paint. :) I like how it turned out. Here's the finished layout:

All the papers and flowers are from Prima Marketing. :)

And Tattered Angels is introducing a new campaign called "Glimmer of Hope". Periodically throughout the year, they will be introducing new (limited) colors. These will be in honor of various illnesses/conditions, and a portion of the proceeds will be given to research organizations for these illnesses. April is Autism Awareness month, and Tattered Angels has created "Piece of Heart"--a beautiful medium turquoise color with gold glimmer. Here it is:

Visit the Tattered Angels site for more information or to purchase it.
