By now you know how much I like glitter...there's just somethin' about that sparkle that catches my eye every time. Today's project is all about the bling with a vintage twist! I started off with a paper mache ornament.
which I painted with a coat of DecoArt Americana White acrylic paint. I then painted every other section with Metallic Red paint.
Here you can see it turned out pretty bright....
But I added a layer of Doodlebugs Sugar Coating Chunky Glitter to the entire ornament
and left it to dry.
But I wanted something with a bit more of a vintage feel to it so I applied some black Pico Embellisher to the edges of each panel which feathered out in, under and around the glitter. Then I gave it a few spritzes of Bronze irRESISTible Texture Spray which really gave it a vintage look not to mention a different kind of shimmer.
I topped it off with a few hand cut holly leaves that I added veins to using my green Wink of Stella pen. A few vintage mini balls and gingham ribbon...and it's done!
I really like the finished look and can't wait to hang it on my tree :)
