Transforming Stickers

I am so not a sticker scrapbooker.  I don't know why, just not my cup of tea...until recently.

I'm going through my older stash and found a sheet of scalloped circle stickers by Creative Imaginations.  Old ....  I didn't care for the printed design for what I was doing but I did like the scalloped circle.  I feel like Dr. Suess ... she thought, thought, thought.  LOL

On the first layout I decided to paint the front of the sticker with Gesso.  It worked great.  No runs and I don't worry about it coming off the shiny finish.  I looks like the edge of a giant doily. 

Memories Captured (me and my dad)

Blue Fern Studios paper, title, and stem to the bird cage.
Michael's wooden bird cage
Prima flowers and butterflies
Peteloo flower
Martha Stewart Lace, Wilton Dolily
Gesso, Faber-Castell Geletos
You can see a closer look of the painted sticker and the wooden bird cage using Gesso and Gelatos.

My second layout is a holiday themed.  This time I turned to the sticky side of the scalloped circle and added Tim Holtz Distress Glitter.  I sprinkled it on, patted it down a bit, and tapped off any excess.  It turned out brilliantly.
