If you are coming from Sheila's Blog, you are on the right track! 

I made this layout of my daughter Mercy when she turned 13 I told her that I would let her have highlights and some how she talked me into doing them myself and I must say I did a good job!

I used the triangle from Pennant Alphabet (E1018) to make the Argyle pattern at the points of each triangle I used Prisma Glitter (Z134) to help with the pattern.  I stamped with Tulip ink pad and I would flip the stamp back and forth to be able to create the pattern.

Supply List:  Roxie Level 2 paper pack (x7140B)
Prisma Glitter (Z134)
Liquid Glass (Z679)
Pennant Alphabet (E1018)
Thanks for stopping by! 

Now hop on over to Michelle B where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique! Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
