Many of you asked what my "trick" was in glittering the bones. I started by painting the bones a green to match the glitter. That way, I wasn't stressing if there were patches that I missed. It doesn't even show. When glittering Bill, I just used craft glue and a foam paint brush to apply it. I watered it down a bit to make it easier to apply. Don't add too much water, though, or it becomes too runny. The key for me was to do it in sections, so I wasn't pouring glitter all over the place! I applied the glitter over a paper plate, and I just kept pouring the excess back into the bottle when done with each section. How's that for a crafty revelation!? A paper plate!
My friend Linda is having a giveaway! Since I won another giveaway of hers, I figure I'll try my luck again! What are the chances that I'll be THAT lucky? Matthew Mead has a new book out, and I. want. it! Look at the cover!
I love every. single. thing. about this group of photos. Green is one of my favorite colors, and the earthiness (yes, I made that up) of this collection is be-u-ti-ful!
You can buy his book at bookstores or at http://www.entertainingsimple.com/index.php?option=com_flippingbook&book_id=2&Itemid=1.
Well, wish me luck! Either I'll win it outright, or Linda will take pity on me and rig it so I'll win! :)
