Creating the pinwheels was pretty easy. I used my JBS Mercantile pinwheel punch with some scrap pieces of cardstock. I covered each side with a different washi tape, trimmed any excess away, then folded the pinwheel. I used a liquid adhesive to secure the folded pinwheel and added a jewel to the center.
The supplies are from my April JBS Mercantile kits. I really adored the kit and was being as frugal as possible with it.It came with some tags from Elle's Studio. I loved the design on the tag packaging( it's the large pink matte). I cut away the Elle's Studio label and placed part of a journal tag in it's place. ( I was surprised to see there are a few April kits left.)
I did use a lot of sequins on this layout. We've been talking about how you can achieve that perfect random sprinkled look over at the Get It Scrapped forum. I think I might be bordering a bit on sequin sneeze on this layout. In my opinion, the key to achieving a random look is to just practice. Try to cluster a few groups of sequins or confetti, let them overlap and adhere them with a fast drying liquid glue.
Yes, today's post is a bit random. What everything mentioned today has in common is a bit of frugality. My pinwheel punch is an awesome tool. I can customize my own pinwheel embellishments for nay layout. Paying attention to the packaging your supplies come in offers you the opportunity to upcycle it for additional embellishments. Sequins are inexpensive and can be a lot of fun on your scrapbook layouts.
