I never thought I would say this, particularly when we were in the midst of that long, long, cold winter, but boy I could do with some Christmassy weather right now. We are sweltering here and the humidity is killing me.
Anyhow, my project is not a card, but a Christmas Wreath. The main part of it comes from a kit from Craftwork Cards, but I have added my own centres, sparkly ribbon, red glittery balls, flower centres and glitter fibres.
There are lots of paper flowers in the kit and you can make them up anyway you fancy. Despite the searing heat here the light indoors was really bad so I had to take the wreath out and hang it on the back wall, so now it looks a bit like a card with brick backing paper! But it is just a wreath.
After I took the top picture I decided to spray the whole thing with spray and sparkle and cover that with glamour dust. I think I may have gone a little too far and it might now be too glittery. I think perhaps spray glue and glamour dust or just the spray and sparkle on it’s own would have looked better.
What do you think, better with the glitter finish, or without? Personally I think the bottom pic has too much glitter.
anyhow I am entering this into the following:-
