Paper Smooches & Xyron Blog Hop

Hi there,

Paper Smooches and Xyron have teamed up for a fun Blog Hop.  We have been hopping all week, so you can view all of the beautiful work by the Design Team, here.

I chose this really Pretty Phrases set by a Paper Smooches to work with.  I love this set.  It is very versatile and fun to use. I created 2 pieces of art with the set.  The 1st is a layout using the "Forever" phrase. I used the Xyron 9" Creative Station, Xyron 3/8 Adhesive Dots, Teresa Collins Mega Runner and Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive.

The 2nd piece of art is a canvas using the "Celebrate" phrase. I used Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive on the canvas to create some texture.  I also used gelatos, india ink, big brush markers, stencil, copic marker and air brush tool.
