This morning I realized that summer is winding down--where did the summer go? Yikes! I love summer, and I find myself constantly making summer- and sun-theme cards. So I made another for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge:
The challenge is to combine glitter and glue dots or glue strips. This challenge was, well, a challenge! Here's what I came up with:
I have a definite love-hate relationship with glitter. I love the look of glitter but hate how it gets everywhere and you can't get rid of it (how can it possibly stay on after swimming??). Needless to say, I have almost no loose glitter.
I had the idea of making a sun, but since I didn't have any yellow glitter, I mixed clear glitter with yellow Stickles to get a nice yellow shimmer (yep, it took about 12 hours to dry). I tried every type of glue dot in my stash to figure out the scale, and in the end I used a Gluber cut in half. It worked like a charm!
I used 8 different patterned papers to make the sun rays and tried not to overthink the layout. It was a struggle to not get out my ruler! I love how random they look, though.
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
