Fantasy Garden Frame by Shannon Bielke

This was such a fun project! I've always been an altered/rustic kind of artist and all that involves.

You know, pieces that are aged, mismatched, darker colors, and random items . . . but then I discovered glitter! Glitter is not all girlie (and yes, it certainly can be!), it can also be subtle, beautiful, and classic.

Art Glitter's colors are fantastic and beautiful, and their tools make it easy to use the glitter subtly and delicately or boldly and brilliantly. At first I thought I might not be any good using glitter, but never fear! It was fun, easy, and amazingly creative!

This project, my Fantasy Garden Mirror, practically created itself with all the beautiful parts I used, and then inspired me to find different ways to use glitter and Fantasy Film in other projects. Yes, glitter can add to my altered art pieces, and Art Glitter's Elements Earth Textures are fantastic for rustic pieces!
