Most crafters approach the use of the Buzz and Bloom acrylics with much trepidation. Fear not! Let me tell you something about using these pretty, shiny things.
Look just how easy these acrylics made my layout almost "done". Honestly speaking, I could've stopped after I adhered the acrylic you see here, which unfortunately was already discontinued (who knows, you might still have it in your stash - go find 'em!). But don't you fret, you can always use the ACR Beaded Curtain series... the artsy impact will still be the same *wink*
Also for this layout, I used two types of chipboard alphabets: the CB Diva Alphabet and CB Vette Alphabet - Lower Case and CB Vette Alphabet - Upper Case. The latter added a little whimsy because of its different sizes:
I must say that the CB Vette alphabets definitely took a beating from me! I primed it with a nude-colored crackle paint before painting it pink. I distressed it using a red inkpad before finally sprinkling three colors of fine glitter. I tell you, the chipboard is still as sturdy as an acacia tree and never feathered. Here's a closer look:
You must agree with me though, it looks amazing this way, ey?
