CONFESSIONS OF A SCRAPAHOLIC

…IT’LL BE OUR LITTLE SECRET…

All that SPARKLES…

Posted by Catherine on February 16, 2009

…is glitter, Glitter and more GLITTER!

And me thinks that this silly girl went completely OVERBOARD with it! It’s hard for me to deal with crafter’s block. I get so frustrated and irritated with myself when I sit down to make something and I come up with ABSOLUTELY nothing! Then I get more frustrated and then of course it doesn’t help me come up with anything…

Anyway, today was one of those days…I sat down and looked around and…nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Blah.

So I reached for a big, huge jar of not-so-fine glitter that I’ve had for over a year and I decided to play!

I started with this…

And with a little tweak, a couple light bulbs going off and my good ol’ friends ALCOHOL INKS, came up with this:


Red Pepper


Stonewashed


Lettuce

Wasn’t really sure what to do with them separately, so I took a little bit of each and ended up with this:

…and from there, I ended up with THIS:

So is there such a thing as glitter overboard? What on this card did I not glitter? *LOL* Another question would be, is there anything that Alcohol Ink can not re-colour? I love, Love, LOVE this stuff! From being so scared to try it out to colouring everything I can get my hands on using it! *LOL*

The card is also a very loose interpretation of Mojo Monday’s sketch:

There was already a lot going on with all the glitter, so I decided that I would omit a few of the extra embelly-like things and just stuck to the basics of the sketch. Hope it hasn’t deviated too far from the original sketch to not actually COUNT as a Mojo Monday sketch…LOL…when I get started in the scraproom, it’s hard for me to go back to the other room to look at the other details I’m missing. I usually only remember a few distinct details of the sketch and go from there anyway…but thanks for looking!
