Glitter and some....

I am not a fan of dry glitter, too messy for me
but the Paper Artsy Challenge this fortnight is glitter,
so I made this tag to celebrate lots of different types of glitter.
The blog has amazing and very creative projects, using all types of glitter.
One in particular that inspired me was Raquel Burillo and her many uses...
I had forgotten about glass glitter, Frantage glitter and stickles.
I have used all of these on the tag along with glue and dry glitter.
I have also used sprays, paste, stencilling and stamping for the background
and die cutting for the sentiment with heat embossing. 
The three feathers are real......Found on my walks.
These have been painted with mica and topaz paint, liquid gold leaf 
and glue with dry taupe coloured glitter.
For the edges of the ribbon I have used glitter gel.

So messy, such fun, over the top and so blingy.....
The photos do not show the pretty colours of the paint, the mica or the glitter.
In real life the colours are topaz, brown, sand/taupe and a few shades of gold.
Every time I take a photo they look different and not true colours.
Now my dry glitter is out 
I might as well continue with the mess and fun........
Thank you so much for finding time to stop by.
I really do appreciate it.
