A bit of 'Glitz'

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you are having a good one. Lots of exciting things happening here. One of them being DD getting her very first car.  As you can probably imagine, she is very excited!
Anyway, I'm here to share my first October DT layout for The Scrapbook Store with you.  I received the gorgeous Glitz Design 'Cashmere Dame' collection in my kit.  It has a very 'artsy' feel to it and is probably not my usual style, but then what is life without a few challenges? Lol!  One of the cards in the 'Whatnots' pack has the following saying on it 'With this smile, I can get away with anything!'  I immediately went searching for this photo of my DD. :)
 A close up of my flower cluster. Love the giant rhinestones that come with this collection.
I have seen this great tip on using templates the other day.  You spray your mist all over your template (with old newspaper underneath). Place it where you want on your layout and then spread texture paste /gesso over it.  It will pick up the colour from your mist and transfer it onto your page.  I tried it on here and worked a treat.  Also used the excess paste to create random lines on my page. Finished it of by using loads of different Washi tapes.
 A close up of the quote. :)

That's all from me on this lovely Friday evening. :) Thank you for visiting my blog and have a great weekend!
Until next time.

Great tip...must give it a go...yep, I'm well back now:):) And I noticed your washi...looks fabbo...I think you do this style really well, even if it is a little left field. Hope your DD has an even bigger smile than this with her new car....it's a fun time. Think my youngest is on about his 4th or 5th car. At 23!!! But then, he's a boy & likes fixing stuff!!!!

This is really pretty Marelize. I think you've done a wonderful job adapting to the artsy style of the Cashmere Dame collection. Gorgeous photo of your daughter too!

Love the randomness of your page. It all ties together perfectly. Love the tip, might have to try it.
And congrats to DD. Although I don't envy you.....just another thing for a Mum to worry about. I am still 7 years off thank goodness.
