Well challenge #2 has been posted on Lindaledbetter.com. This weeks challenge is technique #56 .. Distress Glitter. I love Tim Holtz's distress glitter it's so easy to work with. As much as I love glitter I don't want it all over my face when I'm done and this stuff isn't like that, it's amazing stuff. So I decided to do a small 6x6 burlap canvas. I started with some Tim Holtz kraft resist paper and used Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn distress ink on it to give the appearance of a sky and grass.
Then I used Tim's "on the fence" sizzix die cut to cut me a fence .. I painted it with picket fence crackle paint and let it dry. I used to be terrified of that crackle paint because it would never crackle for me .. then I discovered I was trying to make distress stickle crackle and take it from me .. it doesn't work .. LOL The containers were so alike and I never bothered to read the label .. duh !!!
I die cut 3 flowers from Tim's tattered floral sizzix die using grunge paper. I then covered them with Rusty Hinge and Spiced Marmalade distress glitter. Cut some strips and used Peeled Paint distress glitter on the stems. For the middle of the flowers I used small round fragments and covered them in Peeled Paint distress glitter.
Wasn't sure if it would work on fragments, but it does :) So I wrapped some of Tim's paper string around the bottom of the fence and placed a word band on top of that. I like the way it turned out. I almost wish I could of left some room for a sun in the corner so I could of used my Mustard Seed distress glitter .. my new go to color .. LOVE IT !!
