Our Lady of Guadalupe
I'm so excited to share the news that I was chosen to be one of the new Sparkle N Sprinkle designers. I discovered SNS this summer when I went to the Atlanta Scrapbooking Expo and bought a couple pots of glitter. When I got home and used them, I loved them. So I went online to see about purchasing more and discovered that a design team call was in progress. I just knew I had to enter - and as they say, the rest is history.
After making it to the semi-finals, we had to choose a digital image from the SNS store and submit it. I chose Our Lady of Guadalupe by Michelle Perkett and colored her with Copics and added touches of glitter to the shining rays, the edge of the shawl and the stars on her shawl. The background was created using gold cryogen cardstock and Cheery Lynn Designs (French Lattice large frame). I added the negative pieces back to parts of the frame, exposing parts of the lattice work to the red background. Liquid Pearls (gold) was added to her necklace for a more dimensional look.
Here is the link to the Sparkle N Sprinkle store and one to the SNS blog. You can see the rest of the design team by clicking on the website's Info/Links button or click on my design team page on the top right corner of my blog.
