Here is my project using Graphic 45, Art Glitter & Want to Scrap product…



I used the following items in my creation:

This is roughly what I started with:



Work in progress:



And here’s what it looked like all finished!



Her dress is made entirely of glitter and glue directly on the color copy of the original.


That’s black cotton candy she’s holding! I didn’t realize dipping a cotton ball in black ink would make such a mess! (fyi!)


Paper flowers and notice the trail of rhinestones on the right. It’s one big piece! Love this item from Want2Scrap!


Little glittery lollipops!


I hand stained this white lace using watercolors.


Happy (super early!) Halloween!

    Carrie, WOW, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a project with SO much glitter before. You must have been wearing it for days! Or perhaps you are not as careless as I am when working with glitter. :) I absolutely loved your creative use of glitter. And, your stage area is quite nicely crafted. I’m so glad I hopped over here from the Graphic 45 site. Halloween is my favorite holiday and their paper is one of my favorites. Now, I AM REALLY in the mood for Halloween, early or not–it makes no difference.
