Sparkle and Shine

Sparkle and shine  was the prompt for week 50 at Journal 52

This is how the page started out.
Faces from a stencil and some texture  embossing using Glass Bead Golden Gel medium. It was  sitting around waiting  for a bit of inspiration to happen. That sounds better than the fact  I forgot about it.

I added a little random stamping to the background and chose a couple of colours to spray the page with Summer sky ,Storm Cloud [Prima Bloom sprays] and white gesso

The Lamp post is an Alterations  die cut.
next the fun bit with the glitter.
It goes with out saying that the glitter covered me, the desk, carpet , no where is safe when the top comes off this pot.
I hope you all have made your wish , as I'm sure my lady in the shadows  must have done, especially when the glitter pot appeared.

I am also going off to visit with  friends at Art Journal Journey and wish them all a Happy New Year. Thank you all for this fantastic blog site, it  is so inspirational, I realy enjoy taking out my journal these days, as a way to relax and try out new ideas.

Thank you for calling by, the comments you leave for me are always appreciated.
