For the longest time, bling in arting was something I stayed as far away from as I could. I don't know how it happened or when, but I suddenly started to add touches of bling on almost every project. And guess what? I love it!
Now you might still be in that first place I was in, or you might be an avid bling user, but for this week's challenge I would like to see you use some bling! Be it a shiny ink spray, glitters you add or an iridescent paint effect, add some bling to your project
It will for sure lighten up those days that are getting shorter and darker for us who are getting closer to winter!Another tag from me this week, but this one is huge because I have had a "piece" of bling for a long time that is huge, and this seemed the time to use it.

I began with a piece of scrapbook paper from DCWV called "The Far East" and mounted it on a piece of cream cardstock. I drew my color palette from these papers. My quote comes from William R. Alter (1822-1905), a Unitarian minister and author whose writings were important to the development of comparative religious studies. My bling is from my "gem" box--that's all I can tell you! And, lastly, my focal image, upstaging even the diamonds and pearls, is the lovely Mela, wearing diamonds herself across her forehead!
I am delighted that you came by this week, and would be happy if you left a message so that I know you were here. Take some time for yourself this week and get crafty. Directions for entering this challenge are here. If you play along, there will be a chance at the end of the month to win one of two $30 gift certificates for anything on the Stampotique Originals' website, which you can find here!
