Pink and Gold and Sequins.. Oh My!

 
Ok... so my tax season has started.  But Christmas is still upon us so instead of chores in the morning I've been trying to get some presents made... finished... I only have about 10 projects going on all at once.  I was determined to FINISH something this morning.   This started off as another one of those Hobby Lobby frame/picture ornaments I picked up while I was back in NY.  Of course I forgot to take pics along the way, so basically I painted it, stamped a music note background on it, tried to use crackle paint which didn't workout, used some gold embossing paste with a lace stencil and then glitter paint.  Yeah... Just a few steps...lol!  Then I turned it into a shaker and put flowers and gold and glitter all over it.  I've learned a few things but I guess that's what it's all about.  It's not exactly as I pictured it, but I suppose for a first try with some things it's not too bad.  I'm entering this into the Choux Choux Paper Arts Visions of Sugar Plums Christmas/Winter Challenge.  There is a lot of goodness to be seen in those projects and I highly suggest you check it out if not play along!
