New Challenge.....

Morning to you all, todays post was a New Years Eve request, Heather from My Artistic Adventures is starting a new challenge blog and I popped by to leave a comment congratulating her on her new venture, we got chatting and she asked me to be a guest designer on the very first post, well me being me said yes......when do you want the project finished by.......Tomorrow, so New Years Eve I spent the evening fussy cutting images and the next morning making these 2 projects for her, well I actually made 3 but I'm saving one for later.
Heather creates digital collage sheets and you can find them here at her Etsy store, I love vintage designs and with glitter they make a perfect combination.

I had a play with the following sheets

So this what I came up with, lots of bling and glitter so get your shades out.
The first is a mini easel using the second sheet, I folded a sheet of  card and then used the  
patterned paper as a template, then just built up the layers with pearls, lace and flowers.
 The glitter doesn't show that well but the cherub is edged with pink glitter, if you click on the images you will get a more detailed look.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid, the lace is so old its as vintage as me, only a few more yards left
will be gutted when its all gone. 

such a sweet cherub, just had to add glitter and glossy accents to that hat

Had so much fun creating these as it was raining outside and I was in my craft room having a play, oh and several cups of tea to keep me going, problem is glitter gets everywhere so I now need to have a clean up

Don't forget to pop over to the new challenge blog and join in the fun

Really Reasonable Ribbons....Pink and ribbon
Creative Knockout........all that glitters
CRAFT.....anything goes.
