These are my Winter Danglies for the swap on Art Erratica. I'm very pleased with the results and they look much better in person than in these awful scans. Boy, will I be glad when I get my PhotoShop back!
I bought little flat wooden stars--of course, the store only had 9 large ones, so one of the danglies is a bit smaller, but still nice. I wanted to get that irridescent look--kind of like the Northern Lights in the background, so I used an acrylic ink as a base, then with my fingers I mixed different shades of Pearl Ex powders with Diamond Glaze and covered the whole star. Then I adhered vintage images printed on fabric on the front with Diamond Glaze. I used copper and silver scalloped foil around the edges, hung it with copper and silver wire & either vintage buttons or gemstone beads, and tied bits of irridescent ribbon around the top. The final touch was choosing a word or phrase to go with the pic and stamping that. My favorite is the one with just hands holding a rose and the word, Eternal.
