Well, THIS one certainly fits with the 'bright shiny sparkly' name. This fortnight's letter from the Craft Barn Challenge is G. G is obviously for Glitter (and/or Glister, if you are feeling a tad archaic) and for Globe, with a smattering of Gold and Green for good measure!!
Then I created my world (at this point, I felt a bit like Slartibartfast, only without the fjords...). As I was born in a sunnier clime, I decided to do the 'other side', so carved a slightly odd looking Oceania, I think! You have the former USSR, China, India, Bangladesh etc etc etc, a VERY odd Australia, the Arabian Peninsula (that's my bit) and the start of Africa. The Med also shows, and the North and South Pole. Apologies to all for the wonkiness of the countries. I gave up Geography in favour of German for O'level...
By carving through the backing paper carefully, it is possible to peel off the bits that need to be blue, and cover them in blue Glitter. When all the glue is covered, then the next piece of backing gets peeled away, and green Glitter comes out and so on.
When it's all done, then the acetate goes on, to stop the shedding.
The tag, which has the definitions on, has been slid in between the base page, and the oil paint paper, has the usual wooden G stuck on, and some gorgeous sari silk in (wait for it) green and gold!
Hope you like!
