Last week Paula Pascal from Tonic Studios was kindly asking the team to make a couple of projects using Nuvo Glimmer Paste, Nuvo Embossing Powder, Sparkle Dust, Nuvo Crystal Drops, Nuvo Glitter Drops, Nuvo Mousses, and I promptly answer saying: I'm in!
I really never used Glimmer Paste before but I was curious to try these products several months ago.
Not knowing what I was going to do really, I started by making some backgrounds and I used some of them for the 3 projects in my blog today. These 3 projects were samples for Yesterday's shows at www.hochanda.com where you can see demonstrations and order online Tonic Studios products (UK - Europe ). If you are in USA- Canda or anywhere else you can buy Tonic Studios -Nuvo products at Simon Says Stamp Shop Here!
Ok, so this time Tonic Studios commission was for a monochromatic project made using all the products in the picture below ...
WOW I'll be honest with you... that's a lot of sparkle for 1 single project!!
I manage to keep the balance by cutting a 4"x4" panel that completely transform a dull box.
For the box topper I used Daler Rowney Mixed Media Artboard Paper . A 240 - 300 grams cardstock will do a nice job as well.
I allowed the paste to dry and then I use a die cutting machine and heart dies by Tonic Studios to create a window on the panel. Using a scrap piece of the same paper I die cut a larger heart shaped frame to paste at the edge of the window. I used aNuvo Glue Pen to cover the whole surface of the frame and when it dried I sprinkled Sparkle Dust – Silver Sequin. The Nuvo glue pen is fantastic it dries fats and sticky . You can even apply foil using it.
