December Challenge - Shiny and Sparkly

Welcome to the Bleeding Art Challenge Blog! It's December so let's make it shiny and sparkly!

Create a mixed media project that's got some shine and/or sparkle to it - think glitters, glass beads, even mirror pieces or foil! But be sure to check the rules page beforehand so you know what kinds of projects we accept and the requirements for your entry.

And we've got October's winner back with a fantastic December project!  Meet Helen Angel-Cullum!

I have done some form of crafting for most of my life, learning to knit at about 4 years old - that's nearly 58 years ago! I have been on a number of DTs in the past and was quite well known in the "Alternative/Dark" genre as Croms. All this was put aside about 3 years ago because the majority of the companies/blogs I used to create for decided to stop their challenges and/or close up shop. The bigger companies with cute images were taking over - I don't really "do" cute! But I've found one small DT that fits my skill-sets and passions. Baby steps, as they say!

Helen's created this beautiful shrine for her daughter's upcoming wedding - shiny and sparkly!

You can check out all the details at her blog - Croms' Cubby Hole!
