Just Making Things Clearer….

I noticed that my photo of the jar of hydrangea didn’t show the Glossy Accents very well so I decided to give you a little closeup of how this product makes the jar look like glass and, in this case, even looks like there is a little condensation on the jar.  If you click on this little photo, you will see it in larger detail as is always the case with any photos on my site.

I also wanted you to see what “fussy cutting” is.  There is a jar of flowers on the original paper.  I took that little section from another piece of that paper, glued it to something a little sturdier and cut around the jar and flowers as close as possible to the edge.  Sometimes, one just layers this onto the card stock (as I did in Cait’s Birthday card) or, as in this case, I used foam pieces called “dimensionals” to raise the piece above but right over the print on the original paper. Thus giving dimension to the object.  I added the string that the jar hangs from, used the Glossy Accents on the jar and added my own little flowers and pearls to the bunch of blooms.

I hope this helps my non-paper-crafting friends.  No comments necessary,  just have a wonderful, summer weekend!

About Charlotte Zweigoron

Married, retired, never been so busy..! One of my most prized possessions is my very own craft room! And, actually, all the rest of our home is built around that craft room. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have been living in Georgia for over thirty-five years after a four year stint in Chicago. Crafting, reading and playing Mah Jongg with our circle of friends are my favorite activities right after spending time with my four grandchildren and four great-grandsons. Two of my three grown daughters and one of my two grandgirls live right across the yard from my husband and I. The youngest daughter, her husband, and our grandpups live in our same town. I have been teaching a paper crafting class for over three years and the ladies in the group have become a second family. We are well and truly blessed with people and critters to love..!
