Art Attack - Everyday Embellishing

Things are CRAZY busy for me this week as I prepare for my darling daughter's 17th birthday party!  My daughter is hard working, artistic, witty, sarcastic (in a funny way), intelligent, beautiful and grounded - basically she is an absolute gem so we are going with a Tiffany Blue party theme to celebrate the diamond that she is.  My Circut E2 has been humming for days with cuts from Artiste and Art Philosophy for party decor and some crafts to make with the girls.  I will take pictures as I finish things off and share here after the party but in the mean time I'll share a wonderful article put together by Close to my Heart Corporate Art Department full of beautiful artwork and tips for you on embellishing!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!


Everyday Embellishing

It’s easy to incorporate chalk, metallics, and bling into your artwork with a few embellishments you can use on your everyday papercrafting projects. Let us show you how!

This Merry & Bright page uses dots created with the gold metallic marker to add extra sparkle around the edges of the page. Notice the scalloped accents with outlines in gold marker which adds dimension and draws your eye. Our metallics markers will make your artwork sparkle!

Add heart to your art with an extra touch of bling—cover your Dimensional Elements with silver Glitz™ glitter gel, a clear Sparkle or two, or a touch of silver from the metallics marker! Your heartfelt messages will bedazzle your loved ones.

The chalk marker and 12" × 12" chalkboard sheet are a perfect pair for creating a unique project. Journal and embellish your memories with the quaint look of a chalkboard—minus the dust—and a lot of freehand fun, perfect to display in your albums or on your walls!

If you haven’t had a chance to scrapbook your Halloween photos yet, here’s a great idea for a spooky page. The Haunted assortment with its cute skull brads, spider badge buttons, and more, is the perfect go-to for scary Halloween memories. It also coordinates nicely with the Moonlight paper packet and Moonlight Complements Dimensional Elements.

Tell your story with papers and accents that complement your unique tale. The Memo assortment’s little note tags are great for embellishing and journaling all in one, and the tiny epoxy numbers mimic old typewriter keys. Pair the Memo assortment with our Scholastic paper packet and My Stickease® assortment for your school-themed memories and more!

This elegant layout is tied together by antique elements from the Baroque assortment, Avonlea Complements canvas shapes, and the beautiful Avonlea papers. Add a timeless quality to your memories with graceful keys, broaches, and buttons from the Baroque assortment.
Whatever your project, embellishing will bring your artwork to life.
