Prompt One was filled with inspiration for using our Basic Metal Embellishments, and I ended up creating SIX layouts. I used the sample layouts as inspiration for several of my layouts and for others I simply used some of the ideas presented for using basic metals and came up with my own design. Shimelle shared ideas for using a variety of types of embellishments.
I really like the way all these layouts turned out, but this is one of my favorites because I used some old photos that I had cropped (very crookedly) when I was a teenager. I recently rescued them from an old magnetic album and am excited to finally get this story recorded.
METAL EDGED TAGS
I ended up using 14 eyelets, 46 brads, 1 metal word, 1 metal imprinted rectangle, 9 metal charms, 8 metal rimmed tags, and 3 bottle caps for a total of 82 metal embellishments! I also pulled out a metal frame to use on the cover of my December 2012 mini-album (that I'm hoping to put together this weekend). I would like to tell you that this made quite a dent in my metal embellishment stash . . . I would like to tell you that . . . but it wouldn't be true . . . so I'll just say that it made a very small dent in my stash. Do you have metal embellishments in your stash? Have you used any lately?
