Metal Musing

and that's the name for this weeks Try it out Tuesday set by our sweet Suzanne.
She wants us to use metal on our projects. It could be brads, embellies, eylets, smooch.....well - the sky is the limit ;-)

I decided to make a fun and easy gift bag. I love doing these - but it was such a long time since I actually did one. It's so nice to be able to make a gift bag out of one sheet of paper - don't you agree. I got the tutorial a long time ago from Angie Juda - you find it here. Still loving it.

So for my DP I chose Eskimo Kisses - yes - I can't get enough of that paper :-)
Then I added heart eylets in silver and closed the gift bag with some blue ribbon that I found in my stash.

I coloured Winter from the VC Winter Wonderland release with my copics. Added some Polar White flower soft on her coat. I must say - I really love the effect that the Polar White gives your project. It really looks like the real thing.
Then I used 3d gloss and sprinkled Sparkly fluff (Baby boy blue) on the ground to highlight the snow. I used smooch to highlight the hearts on her shoes and the hearts on the puppy scarf.

Added Country Elegance Blue flowers with metal embellies in the center. Could not resist to also add 2 of my Prima Jewelry as well :-) I know that they are not metals -but I picked the one's with the metal colours ;-)

Well - I hope this inspired you to try to make this gift bag and also - how to use some of your metal products at home.

Have a great week and make sure that you check the rest of the DT creations. I am sure I will!
