Midway post for Imagination Crafts: Glitter and sparkle

Hello there - this is the first of two posts for me today - midway inspiration for the Glitter and Sparkle Challenge at Imagination Crafts. Anybody can enter but if you want a shot at the prize you need to use something from Imagination Crafts.

Here's what I did:




The frame came from any crafts a pound and I started by giving it a coat of gesso followed by a coat of dark blue acrylic paint. Then I used an Imagination crafts stencil and white acrylic paint and did the swirly leaf design - once dry I repeated with the diamond sparkle medium. Finally I die cut some flowers and brayered with the sparkle medium to cover them then added them to the frame. The gems I added to the flower centres are from chloes.

I'd like to enter the following challenges with my frame:

Back later with another inspirational post for CCAYR. Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Big Hugs Rachel xx
