No your eyes aren't tricking you.....

this post is a day late......in my back to school whirlwind....my brain had momentarily failed me.....but never fear....I (thanks to a good friend) have appeared in the virtual world to share this project with you!





I used the Clearly Designed Show Off and punched some holes, I also utilized our cool Intricacies too -- you'll find the 1-2-3 and Stars Intricacies peeking out at you....and some of the techniques I used for the acrylic were painting the back solid so the intricacies popped, filling in between with some glitter, inked, painted around the edges....and speaking of the intricacies, you'll see that I outlined them so that they stood out too....and check out the way I stuck those Journal Bits in there too -- backing them with paper so they popped too. Thanks for letting me share with you!

<3, Shannon
