For my layout  I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock . I used a Teresa Collins triangle stencil with some Acrylic Gloss Medium. This created a subtle embossed look on my cardstock. I flipped the stencil around and placed the stencil over the Gloss medium background. I made sure to place it over the areas where there were no triangles. I used three of my favorite Shimmerz DazzlerzDreamscicleTutti Frutti and Sea U in the Mornin.

I then printed a series of 3 photos of my adorable niece and cut them into triangle shapes. I backed my photos with some mint colored scotch washi tape which I placed on white cardstock as well as a gray and white patterned paper from an old Studio Calico Paper Pad.

I added a few embelishments from my stash mainly from the My Minds Eye on Trend Collection. Some of the triangle pieces of ephemera I made into shaker triangles using the new beautiful Mocha Mint Dream Sequins.

I also used some ephemera words from the same collection for my tittle. I just added the die cut words to some velum and traced them with a black sharpie pen. I also added a tag from my stash behind it. I added some tangled mint thread in three areas and I finished off my layout with the new thin Chunky Cork Stars and the Chunky Cork Hearts, to half of the hearts I added Gold Stardust Sequins.

For my layout I began with 12×12 American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I am scrapbooking a photo of my adorable niece being her silly self. I had a thought of an all white layout. I began by creating a fun unique background with a stencil and Gloss Medium. While the gloss medium was wet I sprinkled some of the beautiful Glass Slippers Sequins on top and let them dry with the gloss medium.

As a photo mat I used one of the White Lace Paper Doilies and a Large Glassine Bag which I folded on one end so create some texture. I decided to bring some grey, silver and light pink into the mix.

I added a few sticker embellishments from my stash which I placed on some fun foam and then fussy cut out. I also scattered around some of the Felt-Fetti Hearts in white and two of the new colors, light and dark grey.

 

I also added the silver stars from the Alma Mater Sequin Mix and the light Pink ones from the Mocha Mint Dream Sequin Mix. I added my tittle using  a silver word from a Thickers pack and I also used some of the silver arrows and hearts from that pack.

I added some silver ink splatters and some detailing with a dark grey American Crafts pen. Finally, I matted the whole layout on a Grey and white Patterned Paper from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge paper pad.
