Create to Create

Hi friends! It feels like it's been so long since I've shared a project with you.

I've been getting pretty messy lately while creating and in the interest of saving my clothes, I decided an apron would be a nice solution. I was inspired by my friend Kim to decorate my apron before I totally ruin it with paints, inks and glimmer mists LOL

What do you think? Does it look familiar?
I used regular inexpensive acrylic paints to color it and then added sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds glimmer mist all over and some of the new yummy Pomegranate glimmer mist on the very bottom. I also painted the stars and stardust with silver and frosted lace Stickles. I wish you could see the way it shimmers, it's so pretty IRL.

Your apron is very pretty. I like aprons too and I have a few patterns I bought but haven't make anyone. I rather buy the ones at Ross' too lazy to take the sewing machine out, lol.
