On Trend :: Metallic Gold

Monday, July 8, 2013

Hello paper crafters! It's time for the On Trend Team of Practical Scrappers to bring you a new trendy technique for you to try. Today it's GOLD, baby! I love this current trend to add pops of metallic and shine to projects! 

I created the above layout, first laying down a background of gold paint splatters with Heidi Swapp Color Shine. The Color Shine was also used to color the cardstock arrows that were cut with the Silhouette Cameo. You can add just a hint of metallic in this way, coloring a title, paper flower, or other mistable embellishment.

For my title, I added a Dear Lizzy sticker. It was a little large for the space. So I folded each edge twice to create a dimensional banner. While searching for stickers and accents to layer on the page, I came across this gorgeous gold frame from Crate Paper. It added a third splash of gold without overwhelming the design. 

Thanks for stopping by. Head over to the Practical Scrappers blog to check out more GORGEOUS GOLD inspiration from the rest of our On Trend Team!

Cardstock: American Crafts (White), A Muse Studio (Sugar)
Embellishments: American Crafts (Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Sticker Sheet), Crate Paper (The Pier Ephemera Pack)
Ink: Heidi Swapp (Gold Color Shine), ZIG Writer (Black)
