My dear friend, Miss Jessica Jane, just had her birthday!! I made her gift about a month ago, and had her open it two days early (I'm awful). It took about 4 hours to complete, from start to finish (maybe a little bit longer), most of which I spent hunched over the dining room table avoiding all contact with the kids, for fear that all of us would drown in a brightly colored sea of glitter. Christopher watched the babies, what a nice hubby, giving me an entire afternoon to finish my project.
Want to see it?
Ok well first you get to see the packaging.
A little tissue paper. Some pearls. And the picture that I used to make the gift itself, turned into a little card.
Ok, now are you ready to see whats hidden underneath the frill?
...a lot, of glitter. There isn't one spec of space not sparkling on that wooden plaque.
Jessica takes beautiful photographs. A picture that really stood out to me, when browsing her flickr account, was a picture that she took on her balcony, of a hummingbird. I wanted to make her something using one of her pictures, and this glitter art was the result.
Her photo is there on the top, and my glitter replica is there on the bottom. Not bad, right? I mean, its tacky as hell, and possibly making a mess all over her floor, since I forgot to put any kind of clear coat on it, but- I kinda like how it turned out.
Happy Birthday Jessica!!
