A Moment in Time

Hello, chipboard fans! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It is Gloria with you today, and I am sharing another 8" x 8" scrapbook layout. I plan to use these as dividers in a box of monthly layouts...if I ever get them all finished! 
This week I made a sparkly, snowy January page. I used a ton of glitter and embossing enamel on the project (unfortunately, the camera did not pick up the sparkle very well). I added lots of layers of paper and chipboard to create my frosty layout.

Start with some chipboard tags (Decorative Chipboard Tags Large and Small Tag Set) and the mittens from the Winter Shape Set. Paint the edges of the chipboard with white acrylic paint. Set aside to dry.

Pull out other shapes and items in a winter theme. For my project I selected: snowflakes and the "Let it Snow" sentiment from the Winter Shape Set, a clock from Skeleton Clocks, Clockwork Penny Farthing, the circle from Scribbled Frames and Lines Set, the circles and arrow from the Mixed Media Fragments 3 Set, and a phrase from Words and Phrases 1.

Paint all shapes with white acrylic paint.

While the paint is wet, add glitter, embossing powder, and embossing enamel to the shapes as desired.
Assemble the layout by cutting a piece of black cardstock to 8 1/4" x 8 1/4". Attach the Graphic 45 Childrens' Hour 8x8 Calendar Pad January page to the cardstock.

Begin to assemble the layers. Cut banners from Graphic 45 Place in Time January paper  and attach to the top of the page as shown. Cover the large tag with Graphic 45 Children's Hour January Montage paper and sponge the edges with white paint.

Attach the tag to the layout as shown.

Begin to add the other chipboard shapes as desired. Use foam adhesive to pop some of the shapes off the page. (Please note that I prepared more shapes than I actually used on the final layout.)

Cover the mitten shapes with Graphic 45 Place in Time January paper and sponge the edges with white paint.

Add the mittens and a sentiment from Graphic 45 Children's Hour January Collective paper.

The "A Moment in Time" sentiment is covered is glitter!

Add some metal elements for more sparkle! I used silver buttons to keep with the winter theme.

Thanks for looking!
