FEELING FROSTY – July 14, 2010 – Fairbanks, Alaska
JOURNALING: We visited the Ice Museum with its fantastic ice sculptures and watched a demonstration on how the ice is carved from huge chunks with power tools. I could not convince Matt to take a nap in the ice house.

TECHNIQUE NOTES: I’m sure you are like me and have lots of those plastic letter templates laying around. I decided that I wanted to use on this layout so I went about “building” my title of Feeling Frosty. I started out by tracing the letters on my kraft background paper with a pencil. I lightly erased the pencil marks so they would not show through on my final image. Then I traced all the outlines of the letters with small dots using my Liquid Pearls. Once that was dry, I filled the inside of the letters with my Star Dust Stickles. After even more drying time, I filled in the letters with Diamond Glaze to give them so dimension and shine. Perfect title with no alphabets or Cricut needed.
