Imagination Crafts "Glitter and Sparkle" project

Hi all

For the Imagination Crafts Challenge for November 1st Iv'e made a Glitter and Sparkle project using Sparkle Medium.

Firstly I painted this canvas with blue Acrylic paint at the top and white at the bottom. I then mixed some Diamond Sparkle Medium with Iridescent Green Mica Powders and spread this onto the bottom of the canvas to form the grass. I also mixed the Green Mica Powder with Gunmetal Sparkle Medium for a different tone and also added this onto the bottom of the canvas. I scratched some lines into the Medium at the bottom to make it look like grasses.

For the tree, I spread dome Diamond and Silver Sparkle Medium onto white cardstock, let it dry, then used a Star Punch to punch out the shapes. I arranged the stars into a tree shape. I also added small Christmas Trees to the canvas which I punched out as well.

I made small holes in the canvas on each end of the branches of the tree and pushed through some battery operated Christmas Lights through from the back to the front.. I also taped the other lights on the string to the back of the canvas so that they would shine through the canvas like stars in the sky.

You could use this technique with lots of different images to add some bling to your Christmas creations.
