Amazing How You Sparkle

Happy New Year!

The True XOXO blog challenged it's designers to use the IDEA of Fireworks as their inspiration for a design to ring in the New Year.

I loved the idea of creating FIREWORKS using paint and sparkle elements. I chose these 'modelling it up" photos of Adriane that I too while driving (yes, I am a terrible example). There were several more but these ones turned out the best (I mean who can hold their iPhone steady doing 100km/hr?)

I started by using modelling paste and my Balzer template to create a raised star burst pattern. Then added watercolours through the same template in matching colours all over the design.

 I added some wooden circles with sequins on them too.
Finally,  my title evolved and I used the Dymo labeller and some sparkly foil letters from Momenta.

I hope your New Year has been creative and filled with optimism. I hope you'll leave me a comment  and tell me a bit about your creative hopes for 2013! Until next time, keep doing what you love.
