Theres a DIVA inside all of us

Hey guys - this post should have gone up yesterday but time just got away from me - but im pleased to have finished part 3 of my ME board... this one reflecting me only a tad, but really wanted to try some new styles so here i am!

My previous posts of my two boards can be found HERE (board one) and HERE (board two)

so without too much chatter, I present, board THREE:

Now, its a shame the pictures will not do justice to the bling, and shine, and sparkle in this pic at all - you almost need sunglasses to look at it!

The one thing i LOVE about this is that i managed to have a play with my meltpot for the first time! a few burns (because im just THAT accident prone) but nothing life-risking!
I took some really borning paper flowers and transformed them into a glittery hard shiny pretty embelishment

I used my melt pot with some clear UTEE and some gold UTEE and then out of the corner of my eye I saw a little bottle of glitter - well! itll either melt and look amazing or burn and blow up the house - so i took the risk and there it is!

And a close up of the results? Adding a little fake-crystal to bling my flowers out further and here they are - SO pretty!!

More details: I used some glittery gold ribbon and tied into a bow, along with a star pin to hold it together, also a little crystal swirl, all from The Ribbon Girl

the paper is also a great find, the gold is really shiny and very textured, the below PP is also full of glitter, I cut the word DIVA with my portrait and added a few tasteful stickles for detail... promarkers to colour my beautify Diva - TGF stamp Wednesday Premire... Distressed with my Tim Holtz ink and also, another detail the camera doesnt quite grab is a silver inked edge around the image....threw it all together and boom! a shiny mess of imagination!
