White spray paint (optional)
First I spray painted the snowflakes white. Spray painting them white is not necessary I just think colors appear more vibrant when they have a white base underneath.
Use any type of glue, I had Tacky Glue on hand but any spreadable glue should work.
*I first tried spray on glue but that doesn't give a good coverage for the glitter so I recommend brushing on thick glue.
I used a few different brands of glitter in three different shades of blue. I don't think it matters what kind of glitter you use, just pick out whatever color scheme you're going for.
I worked on one snowflake at a time and shook on the glitter and let dry.
To hang, I used double sided foam sticky tabs. However, some of my tabs did not hold up.
My front door faces south and I guess the sun heated up the stickiness a bit and the snowflakes fell, so I just used a hot glue gun to attach the snowflake to the sticky tab.

I love texture. It's a great way to enhance a plain picture.
For this project I used a plain white 8" x 11" canvas, 3D paint and a star fish.
The colors are creamy off white, light blue and dark blue.
Here is where I first started the dots.
I filled in the dots and left it blank were the starfish would be.
The star fish was glued down with a hot glue gun.
Although I enjoyed this project, it took a bit longer than anticipated. I probably spent about 2 to 3 hours creating the dots.
I continued the dots a bit over the edge of the canvas.
