I put some card making skills to good use today! Gabi has a jazz/hip hop routine and we had to decorate a black hat that was part of her costume. She's a total bling gal, but aren't we all? So, I found these cool flat gems at Michaels in the colors of her costume. I than pulled out my crystal effects, and glued them down-in a pattern too! I actually laid them out before I glued them down! I had thought process! This was my first time decorating clothing with gems, and it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself! Than I layered up the white part with fine glitter! Thinking dazzling dust technique! Resulting in a lovely blinged up hat for my hip hopping girl! Coarse, I don't think bling and hip hop go arm in arm, but hey, it matches Gabi's personality! She posed for a quick, awful quality photo to show off what I accomplished today, instead of a card! Hoping tomorrow is a card, but just found out my in laws are coming in town a day sooner than I expected for the recital, and hubby's birthday is tomorrow!
