Now for some ART....

.....I am currently participating in a Magic Wand mingle. Here is my finished wand, currently zipping along on it's way to the West Coast. I named it "Starry, Starry Wand".

I started with a star shaped photo holder, added a copper tubing handle and sprayed it silver. I added crystal beaded dangles in each star and then the stems are all beaded in glass beads on wires. I added 2 kinds of Christmas Icicles for some flair and wrapped the handle in holographic silver star ribbon. It was further embellished with silver die-cut words and sheer white ribbon. The end of the tube is filled with a faceted cubic zirconium. All in all I like how it turned out.

Also I am participating in an Easter Egg Garland swap. I had to make 20 eggs and will receive 20 in return that I can string as a garland. Here are my take on the eggs!! I cut out the egg shapes from cardstock. I layered and trimmed varied widths of print papers, added rick-rack and ribbons, pounded in some eyelets, added some rimmed vellum tags and silk flowers and finished up with some glitter. Not my usual style or palette but I think they work for the intended outcome!! :::Smiles:::
