Make My Monday Glitters

New month sees a brand new theme for us ladies over at Make My Monday.  I would also like to say a big welcome to our new Design Team members; Mynette and Val.

Jacqueline, our challenge owner and leader has selected the theme for December - its a short month too; we're having 26 December as a holiday week!  The theme is "SEASONAL" so interpret that as Winter or Christmas (I hope).


"GLITTER"

Now I am not a glitter user - in fact it fills me with dread as I am such a messy untidy crafter.  I am always in too much of a rush.  Anyway I just held my breath and opened the glitters (and yes they got everywhere!).....


My row of houses have been stamped several times to form a street in white embossing powder.  The moon was painted with white acrylic paint and glitter added whilst still wet.  Glitter was also applied to the roofs of the house.  A "speckle dotty" stamp created my night sky and little stars were added.

A mixture of white and navy blue paper was torn up, edged with wet glue and dipped in glitter ...oh this was so much fun NOT hehe to make my snow drifts...(hopefully that it what you see also).

Really hope you can join in with this glittery challenge this week and see over you on the Make My Monday challenge blog. 

I am entering the following challenges:-

This is just fabulous Suz. Such a lovely moonlit scene and the effect is really atmospheric.
I too hate glitter as it's so hard to get rid of. I taught a class with it once and went out at lunchtime wondering why everyone was giving me strange looks - when I looked in the mirror my entire face was glittered!!!
Hugs, Fliss xx

I absolutely love this to bits Suzanne! From the glittery snowdrifts to the moonlit houses, the starry sky (and I'm sure that's a shooting star I see!) and the street sign-style sentiment - every detail is perfect. Thanks for welcoming me as GDT for the week! Vx
