Today I have used a combination of the Hearts and Strips range and the Dancette collection to create a festive layout.
By using the back side of the Hearts and stripes paper I created a more muted background, so that the glitter of the Dancette would stand out, rather than over power the layout. This also meant that the glitter letters I used from the Happy Days collection would also be a focus point, not a distraction.
I coated the background cardstock in gesso, and sprinkled with superfine glitter first. I used a heat tool to set the background, making sure that I used extra heat on the thick parts. This made it bubble up which added nice texture to the background, again without adding extra clutter.
I added twine and dimensional paint dots to glitter circles to create simple ornaments.
