Sparklers Squads Unite Blog Hop

Hello Everybody and welcome to my Blog for the September Sparkler Squads Unite Blog Hop!!!
You should have arrived here from the amazing Jody,, whose sunny and fun layout is hard follow!

Today I am spotlighting the new Mocha Mint Dream sequin mix. It's a beautiful, warm mix of chocolate, mints, tans and light pink. It's so versatile and fun and I have more ideas for this mix in the future!!!

To begin this layout, I used a autumn wreath cut file and used the inside of the acorn cuts to apply some gold texture paste and then sprinkled them with the Mocha sequin mix while it was still wet.

While I let them dry, I moved onto the cut file and decided to use Distress ink to do some watercoloring. I used Spiced Marmalade and Carved Pumpkin, Walnut Stain, Pumice Stone, Frayed Burlap, Fired Brick,Seedless Preserves, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive

When everything was dry, I placed the cut file on a piece of kraft cardstock splattered with some gold Color Shine.  I popped the sequin acorn pieces up on some foam tape and placed the back in the wreath. I then added my photo to the center, also on foam tape. I placed my title in the bottom right corner and coated it in Spectrum Noir Clear Shimmer pen and outlined it in my Gold Signo pen. I added some journaling to the bottom left, outlined the edge of the layout and added some more of the beautiful sequins around the page!
