inspiration Thursday: sequin round-up!

Sequins are back in scrapbooking again! And I love it! They're also out there in holiday decorations, home decor, and fashion, and I love that too, because it means even more inspiration to bring back to the page.

OH, sequins,
pretty shining pieces
stuck by static to my
fingers, arm;
how many possibilities
you hold.
And, sequins are one of those supplies that are inexpensive to buy, and you get a WHOLE LOT of them, so you can use them up and use them frequently. But, that always makes me wonder... how can I use sequins on my layouts? I started Pinning ideas to get me using my sequin stash. If you are looking for ideas on  how to use sequins on layouts, check out my Pinterest board, or take a look at some of my examples posted below.

Here are some pages I've made using sequins...

Add sequins to bow garland.

Make a tiny vellum pocket to fill with sequins.

Add sequins to the tips of punchies or die cuts for a fast embellishment.

Use multicoloured sequins for a fun splash of colour.

I love adding in items like sequins and rub-ons in mixed media pieces.

 Sprinkle a few sequins around to fill in a spot that just needs a little something.

Sprinkle a lot of sequins around to fill in an empty corner!

I LOVE the effect of mixing in these big fluted cup sequins with chipboard, brads, and puffy stickers.

For more inspiration, cool stuff, and generally just really nice stuff to look at,
