Introducing Your Royal Highness.......

....the Crown Princess of Holly!! I found these beautiful flocked and glittered Holly leaves and berries in my MIL's flower arranging stash....they are so touchy feely but drop glitter like mad all over my work bench!!
The small Maya Road letters were painted and stickled.......I only have about 4 stickles and yet for some reason one is green and one red, I bought them a couple of years ago and have never used them since......I think I had visions of card making at the time..lol...like thats ever going to happen!!

To paint them I applied glue stick to my non-stick baking mat and placed the chipboard letters onto it...this makes them easier to peel off once the paint has dried.

Then I added a layer of similar coloured paint to the stickles and left it to dry...once dry I added stickles and waited 24 hours for them to dry.......when are Ranger going to invent quick drying stickles I wonder?
Love and Holly Berries

Hi Ruth, Love your layout and your princess is gorgeous - love the expression on her face.
Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, you are too sweet. I too was happy to see a friendly face.
Did you notice my "Once Upon a Time" album (need to scroll down a bit). I was inspired by your tutorial and giveaway. Since I didn't win it, I had a go to make my own. I also left a link to your tutorial.
Hugs, Irene xx

Lovely layout Ruth and how clever to "stick" those letters to your work bench whilst you paint them. Must try that top tip. Thanks. :)
