Scaredy Katt

Yep, every once in awhile that's me. Scared of what? Trying something new. Will I do it right? Will I just be wasting money? Will it look as good on paper as it does in my head? Well to any and all of these questions all you can do is GO FOR IT. You will never have the answers unless you try.

Recently, I saw a layout that had an element that I fell in love with. I wanted to try it, but scared to ruin the project I was working on. I bought the product......ah, was I wasting money??? I brought it home, and there it sat for days and days. I could not get up the courage to give it ago. So, at that point it was money wasted. HMPH!!!!!! I could not throw good money away, so I sat down at got to work. Baby steps.......that's right, baby steps. Start with a very small project.

The product? Dimensional Magic. This gives a raised, clear coat to whatever you cover it with. I am currently working on a calendar for my desk at work. I used the smallest amount on the letters for the month. I set it aside to dry over night. I went to bed, and was actually excited to get up in the morning to see the results......LOVED IT!!!

So here I am now, with one of my new favorite embellishments. I have used it on two lay outs and a altered picture frame.

Mowing Bubbles

You Will Catch Me

So go ahead, try something new. If you don't like it, well at least you tried. But more than likely you will love the results, and have found another great embllishment/techinque.
