I’ve been playing today, and after two hours had just one card to show for my time and effort.
OK, a lot of that was spent in preparation cutting out a template, then using that to cut out the shape on glitter card, plus the baubles from card tags, and washing my hands a lot.
The glitter went everywhere, and it was worse than using the dry stuff you sprinkle over glue. I had it on my hands, my work space, cutting mat, scissors, clothes and a little of it stayed on the card.
The trimmings I had in mind were fiddly and didn’t want to stay put, so I used one of the glitter stems I’d bought as it could be bent to the shape I wanted. Or so I thought.
The stems didn’t want to stick using double sided tape or glue, and the baubles wouldn’t stick on the glitter. I got out my glitter glue sticks and started squeezing that into the spaces, but it didn’t seem to work either.
I left my ‘masterpiece’ on the window sill and went to make a cup of tea. When I came back, the baubles had dropped off, and the stems had come away from the card again.
The Happy Christmas in the corner looked nice, but then that was actually nothing to do with my creativity as it came on a sheet with a dozen others.
