All that glitters...

can be gold or silver or bronze or any of the metallics this scrapbooking year.  For this layout, I used a LOT of gold.  I didn't really start out to use so many different gold elements. Well, maybe I did because I browsed my stash for everything gold.  It wasn't my goal though to see how many different ones I could use.  I used a lot of them.

The page is about one of my favorite author's books - Judith Krantz.  Her novels opened up this exciting world for me that I have only read about in books.  At the time, before reality TV, TMZ and honestly the evening news which can focus way too much on Hollywood sometimes, Scruples and the novels that followed were just that - novel for many of us.  So I wanted a look that was a glittery as the book's content.

The background paper is dark brown that really sets off all that gold paper and stenciling.

Here is the process video at YouTube:

And a new sketch:

Thanks for watching today!
