Feature Item Mica Flakes

Scrapbookers Paradise has a great new feature item, it's fun AND sparkly! What more could you ask for?
From Jan 16th -31st You can get these little jars of goodness! The Stampendous Mica Flakes are Regular Price $6.50 on sale for $5.25 .
Just quote FIMF in the comments section of your online order!

Sometimes you don't know how you get an idea, and this is one of those cases. When I saw the jar of Mica Flakes I immediately thot of rain, and no, I don't even have a white or blue jar, but I still saw rain???  Any way this is what I came up with :-) 

There is my "rain" I dabbed some fabri-tac in random dots, and pressed the mica into it. Then I covered the umbrella from the Umbrella Man Sizzix die with glue, and covered it. I gave buttons to the jacket with Stickles. The clocks have glossy accents over top to give them a glass look.

This is one of my favorite pictures of "little Maddie" I played with the colors a bit in photo shop, to give it an almost black and white look, the umbrella was very bright, too bright for this page LO. The original is below.   What I wanted to show you was how I colored the sky....with distress ink. I used Vintage photo and Rusty Hinge, just to give it a warm hue. So don't be afraid to color your photos!

This was hard to see, but the "Moments in time" is fussy cut, then crumpled and raised with pop dots. I used  a scrap piece to fill in the back side. 
And here is the finished page. One of my Favourite "Moments in Time"


TPC Studios - Memory Lane
Stampendous - Mica Flakes, tea stained
Darice - Hemp
Ranger - Glossy Accents
Prima - Say it in Crystals
Sizzix Die - Umbrella Man and Brackets on the edge die
