So I thought I would show you the results of my desk from a few weeks back.
Remember the baubles I was going to try an experiment on!
I was going to chuck them out last year but hung onto them. Here are just three of them ready to be covered with sheets of kitchen towel that I had carefully peeled apart to make them really thin.
Lots of gluing, layering and shredding the towels into tiny scraps later and then when dry coating in acrylic paint they looked like this.
Looking better but not quite finished. So I coated them in more PVA glue and rolled in silver glitter and left to hang for a day.
These were the 2nd gift item for my partner in the Christmas Decoration Swap and as they have now been received I can show. One of the things my partner said she liked was contemporary silver and pastel Xmas items so hope they fitted the bill.
Here they are sparkling in the daylight.
If you pop over to Julia's blog here you will find loads of other desks to snoop about, well over 100 each week!!

Creatalicious: For Christmas and make sure it sparkles.
