Sneeky Peeky Project #1 with Cricut Art Philosophy

As I have been working with the Cricut Art Philosophy (Snowflakes), I entered a color challenge over at The color RoomOctober 8th-14th----- The Color Room
New Color pallet #79 - Just click the above  link to check them out.

The picture does not do this layout justice. I may try to retake later and see what I can do. Lighting today in the room is not working and could not get a close up of just the 12x12 layout with out cutting off important areas. Practice makes perfect. In the mean time.....
Got to get other projects done and help my youngest daughter find her title to her car....She totaled her car last week and is saying good by to her first car she bought herself.
TEARS of sadness for her Golden Stallion...I'll have to do a farewell layout when she gets me the pics. She is fine and we are thankful for seat belts and insurance. (wreck was not any fault of hers.) One reason why I do not let people go through 4 or 6 lanes of can not always see what is coming in that far lane.
She has been a very good driver and it was very scary getting that call not knowing how bad or if she was truly OK!  Thank you to many for prayers and concerns. Guess you can say my week was very hectic.
Onto my oldest daughter and this layout....

CTMH Products & Tools used unless otherwise stated.
CS. Dutch Blue, Grey Flannel, Daisy White
B&T's 1 sheet of the scripted Grey Flannel with snowflake design from Wonderland Level 2 Paper pack
1 sheet of Tan scripted B&T from Notebook l Level 2 Paper pack
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and Heart Shaped stamp from the bundled stamp set, Ink Pad & Markers-Dutch Blue, Gypsy, Grey Flannel, Grey Wool
Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel, Liquid Glass, Sponge Daubers
Create-A-Shade Pearl Paint, Creative Memories Corner Rounder
If interested in purchasing any of the CTMH items listed, let me know.
The technique above with the reversed snow flakes was done by taking the negative (the hollowed cut out) and sponge daubing the ink on the inside edges of the flake. Here I used two colors-CTMH's Gypsy & Dutch Blue.
I also did random areas on the Dutch Blue 12x12 Base in Gypsy and Grey Wool. The distressed edging is the Pearl Paint i swiped on with an old paint brush. The white cs has a grid on it by using the Glitz Gel.
The large snowflake is 2 layers of papers. 1st is the Grey Flannel cs, 2nd & Center is Grey B&T Script w/Snowflakes. Snowflake cut from Cricut Art Philosophy in reg cut and layer cut.
After adhering the layer to base, used Liquid Glass around the very edge, let dry for a few hours, came back and sponge daubed the blue ink over entire flake. The liquid glass resists the ink and leaves it clear to see the script underneath. Added the center piece with script side facing up after daubing a light coat of gypsy ink and edging it. Added Glitter Glitz Gel to the small tip openings.

Used Glitter Glitz Gel to some of the extra centers and place randomly on the layout.

Used the Art Philosophy Cricut bundle stamp set to stamp the heart
and pop dotted randomly on the page & stamped the image in a few areas on the layout. Wrote Sub-title and Title in 3 layered colors using the matching colors with the CTMH markers.
