Challenge #8 ~ The Cluster

One of the things I have been doing lately is making embellishment clusters. That simply means that I love to layer my embellishments together. I love the added dimension and interest this can add to a page.

I did this layout for Scrapdango and I loved how it turned out. I cut the bird image from one of the Webster's Pages Papers that I received with my DT kit. I then stamped on it using my Hero Arts Script stamp (one of my all time fav stamps). I then inked and used Glimmer Mist on the Magestical Memories Frame that was also in the kit. I placed some cool, glittered sheer fabric under the frame and adhered it to my page. I then attached my bird to the frame. I added a gem to the bird for an eye. I then stamped on the flower, added a button and placed it on the frame as well. Viola... and embellishment cluster.

I would like to see you use an embellishment cluster on your next creation. It can be either a card or layout. Email it to me at to earn a ballot for this month's blog prize. I have a wonderful collection of Basic Grey Marakech goodies for one lucky winner!

Due Date: February 28th
