Clear Scraps Happy Spring Banner

As we are preparing to get hit with a major winter storm, I'm thinking SPRING!!!.  The Garden Acrylic Border from Clear Scraps inspired this Happy Spring Banner.  This project features some of the new 2013 releases from Clear Scraps!

I used the New Large Chip Banner pieces for the base of the banner.  They are covered in bright papers from Red Rubber Designs - Catelynne Patterned Cardstock Collection, and embellished with pearls, pearl paints and acrylic flowers and butterflies.  The glitzy centerpiece is the Acrylic Garden Border.

I wanted lots of fanciful glitter on this project, so I began by picking out one element on the garden border - the butterflies - and coating it with Art Glitter's Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.

Then I sprinkled a mix of blue glitters over the wet glue.  I repeated this on each of the butterflies on the border.  Then I did the dragonflies with blue bodies and green wings, and then the flowers in pink and white glitter.

It sparkles beautifully!
