A glittery monogram
I was cruising though the channels as I trudged on my treadmill one night when I saw it....the mother load of glitter offered on HSN. I normally avoid HSN for the dangerous nature of it's contents, however, when I saw the title Martha Stewart crafts on the TV guide I succumbed to my raccoon like instincts to posses anything shiny:) This glitter is truly beautiful. It shimmers and shines in a way I do not remember from my childhood glitter. I bought the whole set, enough to last a lifetime!
One the projects perfect for this glitter was a monogram A for Annabelle's room.
Hobby Lobby has these new huge wooden letters!
Annabelle's new bedding was the inspiration for the colors.
Brittany used a chevron stamp with antique gold paint for the background.
Perfect not required!
To make the letter show up more I painted hot pink acrylic paint on the edges.
I had these chipboard flowers in my scrapbook stash which were
mod podged with the new glitter. We didn't have purple glitter, so one flower was
painted purple then topped with a thin layer of mod podge & white glitter.
We laid out the flowers for placement and then used
hot glue to adhere the chipboard flowers to the A.
A is for Annabelle, who is adorable and actually into crafts as a 2 year old:)
I am now looking around my house for more fun things to glitter.
I am leaning toward something one of my retreaters said recently
"I have a special relationship with my glitter!"
