Some of the Sweet As Honey Collection

Today I would like to share with you a scrapbook layout which features Close To My Heart’s Featured Collection – Sweet As Honey

Buzzy Bees….

I plan to use this page for my heritage photos which I haven’t printed yet. I am really enjoying using Gilt Gloss Spray. So I thought I would combine with the “Sweet As Honey” paper collection. On the first layout, I splattered the gloss spray over both pages. I did this by unscrewing the spray nozzle off and then tapping it using my finger all over the page. On the second layout, I sprayed all over the page using the spray nozzle. As you can see you get 2 different effects using the 2 different methods.

As an added touch, I hand drew some dotted lines behind the tiny bees so they look like they are flying. What do you think of them? Cute, Hey?

My title “Family” really sang to me “heritage”. I really utilized the stickers in both layouts as you can see by using the banner and hexagon stickers.

Oh Honey….

Below, I combined some hexagon die cuts and the hexagon stickers to create a honeycomb effect. I added in some cork shapes for texture. I haven’t decided what photos I will this for however it will work for a number of photos.

Spraying the Gilt Gloss spray over some of the black hexagon shapes gave them a new effect. I popped the big bee up using 3D foam tape.
