For the love of gold....



For-the-love-of-gold-monogram

Recently, I discovered the merits of gold glitter eye shadow  It instantly brightens up your eyes and gives a warm glow to your skin. :) Since art imitates life, I had to to implement it somehow right?*winks*


I started with wrapping tissue and paint for the base. Then I added a thin layer of mica gold flakes. Some gold "accessories" finished my monogram! I love how shiny and glittery it looks!
