Technique Hop - Silver and Gold

Welcome to our Silver and Gold Technique Hop   There are so many ways to incorporate the two and I can't wait for you to see the awesome creations from the participants. If you are coming from  Michele John's blog, you are on the right track. 

First, all of the products (or similar ones) I use, can be found on my website
For today’s technique hop we are supposed to use Silver and/or Gold on a project.  I am going to use both and I’m going to use our Silver and Gold Foil paper (Silver Foil z3366) (Gold Foil Z3365) and our Silver and Gold Glitter cardstock! (Silver Glitter Cardstock Z3239) (Gold Glitter Cardstock Z3238) I love the rich look of these metallics along with the sparkle of the glitter cardstock.  
#1.  I started with a 3 x 12 inch strip of our new Adhesive sheets.  Removed the backing on one side to reveal the sticky.  Adhesive sheets Z5022

#2. Then I cut ½ x 12 inch strips from the foil paper and glitter cardstock.  

#3.  I adhered the strips to the adhesive horizontally, alternating each strip until I covered the whole adhesive panel.  (cut off the excess to keep layering up the panel.)

#4 Carefully cut the panel into 2 = 3/4 x 12 inch strips and 2 = ½ x 12 inch strips.  

#5.  Now to the layout.  I used a sheet of our retired Woodgrain paper (but we do have a new paper packet) (Wood grain X8028) layered a 9-1/4  x 9-1/4 piece of White Daisy (White Daisy 1385) in the center, put strips of the Holly and Ivy Bulk paper framing the layout and then put one of each of the metallic strips around the white daisy creating a double frame. 

#6.  I used items from my stash to embellish my photo and layout.  I made sure to keep it simple as I wanted the photo to stand out as the metallics already catch your eye. I used more of the metallic papers to make the title.(Joy Z4397)(Peace Z3900)

I hope you enjoy my layout and Process video,
