Here's Shell:

"Hi There!

Shell Carman here with a couple of techniques I used with the June Limited Edition kit

The June Limited Edition kit contains the Ephemera pack with lots of gorgeous bits & pieces. I really loved the view finder wheel. I decided to use this to create an Interactive title on this page

It is a quick simple technique that looks really cute. Simply use a small Brad in the centre of the wheel to adhere to the main page. Do not use any other adhesives as you want the wheel to spin. Add some flat alphas. The Luxe copper alphas in the kit were perfect as they are flat stickers which allows the wheel to spin completely without getting the alphas caught on anything

So once I had completed my page, the wheel still spins which allows me to change my title from Such a Diva to A Diva Girl.


The Limited Edition kit also had some gorgeous canvas trim. You can alter this is so many different ways! I have used the trim on this page

To start I sprayed some mist in Heidi Swapp Chartuese so that the mist completely covered the trim

Then take some Shimmerz Texturez in Crushed Coral & a mask & a small craft trowel to apply the texturez

Place the mask over the trim & apply the Shimmerz Texturez using the trowel

This is how it looks finished

Thanks for joining us today!
