All that Glitters- Fiona.

Morning all, Fiona here with a bit of Christmas Sparkle to inspire you. I've stepped outside my comfort zone yet again and used GLITTER. But it had to be black glitter for me.
I was inspired to make a Christmas bauble so I went to my go to Tando grab bag of circles. I sorted the sizes needed and gave them all a coat of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in carbon Black. Once dry all circles  and a medium sized snowflake were given a coat of DecoArt  Americana Deco-Page glue matte and then a generous amount of black glitter was added. The excess was then dusted off. All circles were the edged with DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Burnished Brass. Three Tando Snowflakes ( the large snowflake was specially cut by Di for me ) were then given a coat of DecoArt Extreme sheen Metallic in Vintage Brass. Once dry the large snowflake was then stamped with a text stamp from Andy Skinners Textures Stamp set. All three brass snowflakes edges were then inked with black Archival ink.
Now to assemble the piece. All circles were laid face down and lined up. Then to attach them all together to form a complete piece a coffee stirrer stick ( the ones you get in the coffee shops) was glued to the back of the circles in a complete length from top to bottom. All three snowflakes were then layered onto the large centre circle using grey board offcuts to give depth and dimension . The tiny snowflake was added to the bottom small circle and a tassel added to finish.
Close up detail.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Hugs Fiona.
