Dazzling trees

This was voted the favourite project at my glitter class on Monday – not surprisingly as it uses that ever-popular stamp set, Lovely as a Tree.

Not sure if you can see the glitter on it but we used Dazzling Diamonds to highlight parts of the image such as the snow on the ground and a few of the branches. Subtle, but dazzling! We did this by “drawing” on the image with the Two-Way Glue Pen then spooning glitter over the top, tapping off the excess back into the pot (I use those plastic Chinese takeaway pots to store the glitter).

And I finally cracked open the Hodgepodge Hardware. It’s really beautiful and falls into the “too pretty to use” category. Must stop hoarding nice things as it’s completely pointless.
