I was reading some random craft or home decor magazine, or maybe a blog, I really can't remember. Well, now that I think about it, it was probably a blog. Anyway, someone took gold paint and painted individual petals of flowers (fake, I think, but maybe real) with gold paint. So while I was staring at this Christmas tree stamp, I decided to paint parts of swirls with gold Smooch. Click on the pic and see it better.
Of course, then I had to add the pearls, which are sort of brownish, shimmery goldish. Just a few wouldn't do. I used a bunch. As you can see.
We're heading home now after a positively wonderful vacation. I can't wait to get back into my craft room though, and also can't wait to pick up my golden retriever at the kennel. We miss our furry golden sunshine!
