Add GLITTER with ADfD!

Hello! It's time for a new challenge with A Day for Daisies! For the next 2 weeks, we want you to add some GLITTER! I looooove me some glitter, so this was super easy and kind of a no-brainer for me. I used Forest Friends for today's project, which just so happens to be an Art Journal page. I haven't made one of these in about 9 months, and I REALLY need to start making them again.

I started off by "coloring" the tree with Vintage Photo Distress Stickles. Then, my son Phoenix and I colored in the leaves of the tree using a shimmery green gel pen. After the tree dried completely I applied some Glossy Accents to the grass and covered it all with Green Micro Glitter from Stampendous. Last, I colored the animals and sky with my Tombow Dual Brush watercolor markers.

Now it was time to play with my background. I sprayed it with 4 different mists, by just as many companies. One of them was Wedding Dress irRESISTables by Imagine Crafts, which is nice and thick, so I knew I could sprinkle some more glitter on top of it. I used my favorite glitter...Crystal Glitter Mix by Stampendous.

I needed more leafy green goodness, so I decided to use the Ginkgo Bough from Dreamweaver Stencils on the background. I inked it up with Honeydew Encore Ultimate Metallic ink from Imagine Crafts. I also added a simple sentiment from the Wild Sayings Stampendous set. I think that all of these elements really set the stage for the lovely Forest Friends image. I could even see printing the image out really big and making it a Spring time wall hanging. Please be sure to visit the rest of the A Day for Daisies team over on the blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Really like the look of the watercolor-brushed animals and that sentiment. Of course the shimmery glittery-ness is great, and probably hypnotizing IRL
