I decided to use these pages below, that I had started ages ago. When I use a stencil, I often put it into random pages in my journal to remove whatever's left on it - in this case, gesso from this tutorial I did for Hero Arts. I later went and added some distress ink, and there it sat.
I chose a Hero Arts shape from the Silhouette store as my main-coffee-focal-point. I also love the coffee ring from Texture and Shape, and the word "coffee" from Need Caffeine. (That's aptly named, since I usually *do* NEED CAFFEINE!)
I used all kinds of goodies to layer on the texture to this page. I love the Wendy Vecchi metallic gold embossing paste!! The fun Mosaic Swirl stencil is from Dina Wakley. And oh my goodness, the glitter I found at my LSS!!! YOU GUYS!! It's so awesome. It's called Gold Lux Mix and it's a mixture of glitter and mica. It's so awesome!
I cut on the blue letters with my Silhouette, and the brown stickers are Thickers. I also added detail to the cup and some random dots with some awesome Faber-Castell gold pens.
When my page catches the light, oh my goodness the shimmer! I wish you could see it IRL. It makes me happy. Just like coffee.
Thanks for stopping by,
