Happy New Year with Creative Embellishments.

 Let's get this party started 'cause it's time for the January photo inspiration challenge at Creative Embellishments!  Here's the inspiration photo.  I took off on the colors which strangely led me to rusty gears but then the twist this month is to use glitter so I've got steampunk meets glitzy glam going on.

I started out with a Large Tag from Creative Embellishments and covered the tag with Stamperia Time is An Illusion paper.  Then I used CE's Metal Stencil to add some gold masking to the tag background.  

On the right side I used one of my favorite chippies, the Grunge Star Corner, I love this chippy!  (And, there's a grunge heart corner too!)  The smaller stars are simply painted with Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter Paste and then the big star was first heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Black embossing enamel and then painted with the same Glitter Paste.

On the left side I've used another of my favorite chippies, from the Washi Tape Clusters set, as the platform for my Happy New Years sentiment.  I rubbed onto the chippy some Prima Antique Brillance Lucky Emerald Wax and Prima Metallique Wax - Antique Gold.  The champagne bottle shaker was made with Cheery Lynn dies.

Nestled in with the fibers and sentiment I've used Pine Cone Clusters topped with a burlap roses.  First I painted mist on the pine cones and pine branches in brown and green.  Then I lightly rubbed x over the pine cones with Vintage Gold Wax to highlight their shape.  Next, more glitter paste on the branches, of course!  This piece is all about the sparkle!

I used Gear Cluster Set 2 for the grungy steampunk elements.  I painted those with Prima's rust effect pastes.  Then I "stickled" here and there with Stickles Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Frayed Burlap and Cinnamon.

I finished it off with a "mess" of fibers that I truly gathered from my left over bits and pieces.  Love it when I can use something up like that!
