Eat Your Veggie's

Over at This Thursday the challenge is to:

The challenge this week is Blings the thing so we want to see loads of shine, sparkle, glitter and glimmer with some added pow and pizzazz. Or as usual you can interpret the title however it inspires you.

I had a Journal for COF to work on. And as most of you know I can't to anything without "Bling" so I decided to use my tag from Elisabeth's fabulous Round Robin Journal for the challenge.

Elisabeth's journal is all about "Mother's sayings" phrases you heard over and over as a child. I selected the tried and true phrase "Eat your Vegetables"

A lot of the Bling can't be usual. There is some pearl ex powder mixed all over the tag. I used silver pearl ex powder in an attempt to highlight the silver tray of veggies my "mom" is carrying. The words "Eat Your Vegetables" are surrounded with a silver paint pen that is really really shimmery. My "Moms" dress is painted with sparkeling H2O's and last but definitely not least the entire tag has been edged with bright orange glitter to match the carrots in the ribbon.

There are two charms hanging off of the ribbon, both silver, one is a corn cob and the other a pepper.

Hope you enjoy my homage to Elisabeth's tag journal and to This Thursday's challenge. I had a great time making my shimmery piece.
