I felt the need to Glimmer.....

So - Jake (my 15yr old son) has a project due for his Italian Class -he needs to make a mask to celebrate "Carnivale!"  It needs to be in "Jewel tones" he tells me -- well -- I can do that!!

So - out comes some manilla folders - he designs the shape of the mask - we cut it out - and I teach him how to spray "the ELIXIR of LIFE!" 

His comments - were - Cool & Awesome -- and I have to agree - don't you think it turned out pretty neat??

First he selected the colors and sprayed it with some Frozen Lake - and a little Gold -- ( I'm running a little low on this - so it is time to get some more!) 

Next - we used what was left of a piece of Grungeboard Swirls - after I punched out and used all of the swirls -( I can't throw Grungeboard pieces away -- #1 - ya never know where /how you can use them - #2 - they LOVE Glimmer Mist too! #3 - I just love how Grungeboard smells!)

We used that as a stencil or mask and he spritzed different spots with Red Velvet and Sapphire, while moving it around.

Look at that shimmer!  The jewels were Jake's idea to place them like tears on the mask - so cool!

Here is the Grungeboard that was used to stencil the design.

Well - I hope you like it -- and I really hope the teacher does too!  I think Jake did a great job - don't you?!
