Technique Blog Hop

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.  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 Marianne's Blog, you are on the right track!  

I have been wanting to make a Recipe Box since they were released and never have.  In starting a new school year next Monday, I thought the box, decorated with the NEW Elementals paper pack which coordinates with our school colors, would be perfect for maintaining student and parent contact records.  And what better way to bling up the Alphabet Dimensional Elements than using this technique?
I was a little intimidate by the technique initially.  While I loved how it looked in the Idea Book, I was a little hesitant on mixing Liquid Glass and Reinker!  YIKES!  But it worked out just fine and I'll look forward to using this technique again on future projects.  (I was sure to rinse out the Craft Jar and my Embossing Tool immediately after use and wiped it dry with a paper towel.  It is ready to use next time!)

Supply List: Z1322 My Creations Recipe/Photo Box, X7141B Elementals Paper Packet, C1464 Blue Ribbon stamp set, D1491 Hooray Bouquet stamp set, Z1680 Stars Dimensional Elements, Z679 Liquid Glass, Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection (CTMH Exclusive), Pacifica ink, Creme Brulee ink, Sponge Daubers, 3-D Foam Tape.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Kelly'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!
