No sparkle fades quicker than a Christmas tree after the holidays.
How can something be so dazzling with wonderment and glee one minute....the next become this dehydrated, shedding eyesore ?
Poor, poor thing gets such a bad wrap.
Tree, I did love you once, truly I did.
But please, pick up your fallen needles and shove yourself back out the door.
I guess I am feeling nostalgic for the days of sparkle (like last week).
So with my trusty glue and glitter I have taken some of my latest distressed, wood paintings and encrusted the edges with gold/silver glitter.
Now, I usually side-step the word "encrusted".
Makes me think of things caked with crust...ex: bottoms of shoes, corners of eyes and medical conditions no one should ever talk about.
In my book there are only 2 manners where you should use that term:
On Menus.....as in Chicken Encrusted with Pecans....whenever I see that on the menu it's a done deal.
For encrusting the edges of paintings with shiny things.
Shiny things, pretty, shiny things....that's the key word.
SO here's some examples to bring back some of thaty sparkle.
