Have some fun!

Recently I was able to squeeze in some "me time" I went to work working on Tim Holtz's Texture Fade  Techniques. This can be found in his book; A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2.  If you have not started your technique (tag) journal or tried out any of the new trendy inky techniques, take some "time off"-have fun creating!
All materials Close To My Heart, except the Embossing texture folder.

One of today's new trends is to go simple....The top card is a little above simple with the use of layers added (LOL) In the card below I added sparkles to the buttons using CTMH Liquid Glass. I also added a little more color with a Sorbet card stock gear cut from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.
Have fun creating your new trends!
