DIY Planner Dashboard #RitaBarakat #TonicStudios

I wasn't feeling the orange dashboard for June in my work planner. So I gave it a make over.
I used Rita Barakat die cuts, Veil of the Fairies* and gathered up some scrapbook paper. We are fortunate enough to have Tonic Studios sponsor the Design Team this month. Love their products. I used Nuvo Glue Pen, Nuvo Radiant Gold Gilding Flakes and their Nuvo Crystal and Glitter Drops.

This is the first time I've worked Nuvo's Gilding Flakes. Here are a couple of tips; carefully open the jar. The flakes are very light and fly away easily. Don't breathe to heavily or sneeze for that matter. :)

I trimmed the pattern paper to the size of the dashboard. It was slightly smaller, but I don't mind the matted orange.
I applied the glue with Nuvo's Glue Pen where I wanted the Gold Gilding Flakes, allowed to dry and then used my fingers to rub off the excess. You can use a brush too. You can then store the unglued flakes back into the container.

I fussy cut a few of the blooms from the pattern paper with Westcott's Non-Stick scissors and used the Glue Pen to adhere them along the border of the page.

I then glued down the Fairy and added Nuvo Drops throughout the page. It adds enough dimension to the page without adding too much bulk. I also trimmed an acetate cover with gold lettering; love love love

So happy with the outcome. The most difficult part of this small project is waiting for the Nuvo Drops to completely dry. :)

Thank you for visiting and happy crafting and planning!

*Every month there is a new collection release, however it's only available for one month. Veil of the Fairies is no longer to purchase, but a new collection, Mystical Creatures is available.
