Hi, at Gingersnap Creations its a new month with a brand new challenge, the theme for the month is Holiday Lights and we are being kindly sponsored by Penny Wise Arts. This week its " Starry Night".
This is an Altered Wooden Glass fronted Shrine, not done one of these before. Painted Black Gesso onto the frame and then rubbed Inca Gold along the edges and buffed. Other pieces added are 3 small wooden stars and some metal words and corners which were alcohol inked in gold.
The background of the picture is one of my Acrylic Squishings, stamped the trumpeting Angel from Inkadinkado (totally a favourite Christmas stamp of mine, as if you hadn't guessed......lol) used heavy black glitter for the main bodywork. Then sprinkled iridescent micro beads (kindly donated by Penny Wise Arts) onto the picture. Popped the glass back in to protect it from the dust.............. I know I shouldn't say it but I really love how this has turned out. The beads catch the light beautifully and appear to change colour from different angles.
If you are stuck for inspiration then pop over to Gingersnaps and see what the rest of the Design Team have created (see sidebar) This is such a brilliant time of the year with the Christmas Tree and all the pretty lights, Christmas carols being sung........ooooh it just makes you smile.
I also would like to submit this to Paint Party Friday as didn't want to miss another week.
Thank you for popping in and take care of yourselves. Will be visiting you all shortly, just have to feed the Christmas cake with Brandy and get the cards off to the Post Office. Hugs Annette x
