A HM club member asked me how i use perfect pearls on my HM image. We can do lots of things with PP but from the top of my head, right now, i colored CONFETTI which you find lots in HM stamp images, very recently, with PP. You put some PP into the pallet, and add a tiny drop of water, & mix. You can use it, like acrylic paintings. Also i recently used "Perfect Sparkle" which is one of my most fav. color in PP, as STEAM from the drinks, and water from shower. You can find steam & water in HM stamps a lot. The stamped image shows "----", so i use perfect pearls medium PEN (not the inkpad), to write over those "----", and put that color & dust with the brush. It shows that you did something BUT not too much, cuz they are steam & water, it should not pop up in the image, anyway. But i always get the compliment, doing that. I just love subtle simmering on my card/image. And PP does that, in my opinion, and on HM stamp, it gives the Sweet look! What do you think??

I was always wondering WHAT THAT metal gadget was for, the one which i've seen at nearby craft store, but never stopped to take a look at the package closely to read. It looks like the metal gadget i have, to make an extra hole on my leather belts. Anyways, today, i found out what it was...it's called, "itop Tool" from imaginisce. And now i learned how to use, and now i want it! lol Make it short, it's a BRAD maker. I can make the customized brads, from small to large! This is now in my wish list! You can click this website for it's video clip (by Mr. Tim Holtz). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6UXuH946Gk
