Inspiration for a New Glitter House

Isn't it funny how inspiration can strike?

This week I have been working on a new glitter house. All because I went shopping.  :)  
I purchased some white bottle brush trees already decorated with turquoise, aqua and silver beads, so of course I had to make a turquoise glitter house to go with them!

I selected two colors of acrylic paint - a lighter and a darker turquoise shade. Above is how the house looked after construction and painting.  You can see the trees in the background. You never know where your inspiration will come from. I had no idea when I went shopping that I would find these trees and be excited to make a new glitter house for them to nestle up against.

 Once the house was together and painted I set it aside to dry. A couple of days later I added glue  . . .

and glitter!

Something about adding the glitter really brings them to life.  (And usually makes a few other things sparkle, too.)

The next task is to make a fence and a base for the house and trees to sit on.

Hope your week has some inspiration and sparkle in it!
