Love sequins!



Second post for today!
I cannot believe myself. Getting into the flow once again, I think!
With having extended family at home, I found it so hard to craft or blog because of the time constraints and exhaustion. Life became so busy with cooking 4 meals per day, cleaning, washing, entertaining and finally getting exhausted. They have gone to Sydney for 4 days. So suddenly I have plenty of time. I am able to watch my favourite TV program, craft, check FB and also blog.
Thus able to blog two post in a day:) Loving it.

Anyway here is a card I made using the sequins from Studio Calico. I am in love with the sequins and love the cascading sequins.


 The sentiment is from Hero Arts. Simple but glamorous card. I had submitted for PC sequins call but didn't get picked up!

Ok! That is all for today. I need to get my torch, lighter and candle organised. Perth is hit with wild thunderstorm today and more is expected at  night with gusty wind. Better get prepared.

Catch you tomorrow.

Ta!

Hi Janis! I used Tombow Mono Multipurpose glue to adhere my sequins. They dry clear as well:)

Thanks, Gayatri. Does Tombow glue have much chemical odor? Does it set up fast?

Thanks for taking time to answer my questions!!!

Not at all! I did it watching "The Good Wife" I arranged the sequins on the card front. Once I was happy with the layout, I stuck them down one by one:)
