And I used 3D Embossit Art Glitter Adhesive to give the areas I glittered a little bit of a lift.

First, I glittered all the letters, gold round areas and each pennant. I did a gradient of color on each pennant. For example, for the green, I started on the left with a hint of the yellow, then went into the lighter green, into the darker green and then ended on the right with just a touch of blue… like so:



So, here are all the elements glittered and waiting to dry and be assembled:



Here’s a dry run before I glue them all down, just to see what the placement will look like:



And a side view… so glittery!



I glued down the middle pennant in the middle of the ribbon, and then glued out from there:



Here are all the pennants glued down:



And here it is all assembled and hanging from my dresser:



And I know this is lucky because a little rainbow prism showed up in this shot!
