Make Your Own Enamel Dots

Good day friends.  I wanted to share a layout and a video today on how to create your own 'Enamel Dots'.  You'll notice that this layout is created from supplies from the February picks for my project life last month.

I've been creating with some super fun products lately that I've purchased over at Blue Moon Scrapbooking.  If you haven't checked out their shop, I do hope you will.  Scott and Lisa work very hard to get in the newsest products and I am amazed at the service they offer.  

I am designing for them, but I've been shopping with them for about 4 years, long before I began working with them directly.  They ship all over the world (free shipping in the States on every order of $50, no codes necessary!)!  One of the things I love is that they have a lot of variety of types of products, including many many mixed media items.  In addition, if you are looking for something that they don't have, ask them about it. They really do listen to their customers.

Ok, so I promised a layout and a video demonstrating the awesome Viva Decor pens.  Here tis!



You can find these pens in the store right here in lots of different colors, including some that are transparent.  Super fun!

And a few photos of the layout....


You can see a detail of how beautiful that Julie Balzaar mask is.  I love all the options available just on that one single mask.


I'm a big fan of inking my stamps with cat's eye inks so I can add a specific color to a specific portion of the stamp.


Enamel dots in action.  The color of these is actually turquoise but it photographed almost cobalt, not sure why that is.


Do let me know if you give making your own enamel dots a try.  I'm guessing you'll be addicted pretty quickly like me!

    Those pens are great and this is a genius idea. I am addicted to enamel dots but they can get a little expensive at times.
