Make a Moo, Arty Girlz and Tag, You're It!!

There's a common theme running through some of my projects this week - see if you can spot it!! LOL!! :o) I was having a sort through some of my stash this week when I found this little bottle of starry glitter. Goodness knows what was going through my mind when I bought it - my only defence could be that I may have been expecting at the time because it's been up in my craft room for absolutely Yonks, untouched!! I also came across a couple of can lids that my friend Lorry sent to me aaaaaages ago and I decided that this would be perfect for my Tag, You're It! circle tag . So I actually sat down to use the lid as a template to draw around when I had the brainwave to use the actual lid itself! With a little help from my crop-a-dile which cuts through tin like melted butter, Lo, a tag was borne! Then out came the glitter - Woooo!! What fun this stuff is - why on earth I haven't used it sooner is beyond me! It's messy I'll grant you, but it's so effective! I love it now, but there's not a lot left so I need to find more!!!

Close up: isn't that glitter just gorgeous!
It was also useful when I was making my Moo's for this week's Make a Moo or Two challenge - the theme is Brown and Beige. I do find it quite difficult to work in such a small space but I had a go, and although I really enjoy doing it, I always feel somehow that I'm missing something where Moo's are concerned?? Everybody else seems to be able to fill that little space with such flair but I really struggle to keep things in proportion.
And finally for this weekend's offering, I decided that as many of my friends are taking part in the Little Boxes swap I would join in too, and this little house fits in nicely with the Arty Girlz challenge this week which is wings!

Thanks for popping in! ;o)

  23. This is an outstanding tag - I'm not a great one for lots of glitter, but this looks really fab.

    Thanks for your comments on my tag. Waxy flax is manufactured by Scrapworks. I guess it's just waxed thread. I like how you can shape it.

  25. Hi, Anne.. This is absolutely fabulous, and congrats on being featured on the Inspirational blog!! :o)

    I think the glitter you used is called 'Ixie Dust' (no 'P')? I bought some about five years ago from Kooky Kards, but they don't do it any more. :o(

    Have searched high and low, and can't find that exact product anywhere, but you could find the components and mix it yourself, I guess. Nearest I can find is product called Beadazzles, which mixes accent beads with glitter. Oh, and Kookykards do a glitter product called Sparks which is similar.

    Anyway, thanks for the inspiration! Have just used my pot of Ixie Dust for the first time since I bought it, too!!
