Glitter for Grown-ups

So, I'm working on finishing up my son's baby book...yeah, yeah, I know he's three! But, in my defense, I nearly finished it a year ago and haven't worked on it since then. I only had three pages left and I'm going on a scrapbooking retreat this weekend. So I figured that if I finished that book now, I would #1 not have it hanging over my head anymore...and #2, get the creative mojo flowing before I get there this weekend. That way I'll already be in the groove!

Here's the page I worked on this weekend! I LOVE it!

I don't know if you can tell, but I completely glittered the chipboard swirlys in the lower right corner!! I love glittering-it makes me feel like a kid again. Glue, glitter...MESS! Ha! Ha! You should see my dining room carpet. It's like fairies visited in the night. Then, inevitably, I have glitter on my clothes, hands, and face for the rest of the day and my husband gets a funny little lovey smile on his face every time he spots a stray sparkle on my eyebrow...
You probably can't really tell this in the photo either, but I put Liquid Glass on the 9. A friend told me that the Liquid Glass worked really well on Outdoor Denim ink so I've been looking out for an opportunity to try it. She was turned out awesome! I started with a plain white chipboard number 9, inked it with Outdoor Denim ink, then slathered the entire thing in Liquid Glass. It came out shiny and beautiful!
I love this page! ...and now I'm that much closer to being DONE! Woot!!
