Great Weather for Sleeping In

God made days like today for picnics at the beach and snoozes in the sun....... which unfortunately I can't quite do right now. But, I'm enjoying my day nonetheless - the lovely weather makes me happy.

Here's a sleepy little someone....

Layout Title: Dream On


Here's a close up of my favourite bit of the layout:



And here's how I did it:
1. Sprinkle metallic coloured UTEE onto the page in a 'splat' shape
2. Melt with heat gun from under the page (don't heat from above unless you really enjoy sweeping the floor)
3. While UTEE is still hot (and liquidy), stamp into the puddle (I used my crackle stamp)

Incidentally, do try to use a rubber stamp 'cos I suspect bad things will happen to your clear stamps if you abuse them this way...

Happy Monday!
