Flourishes - Dryer Sheet Challenge



It's my fourth week as Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Guest Designer and this week Heather has challenged us to use the dryer sheet technique on our projects.  Simply adhere a used dryer sheet over your image for a cloudy or snowy look.  Mine was a little too thick so I rubbed the dryer sheet to thin it out and liked the outcome much better. I added a little glitter to it as well.  We'd love for you to play along so check out the details on the Flourishes Blog.


Here is a link to the technique: http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2010/11/19/video-tutorial-dryer-sheet-technique/.  



Check out what the Timeless Tuesday Team created:
