Oh Christmas Tree!!

So I wandered into Crab Apple Crafts in my lunch hour the other day with the intent of buying some adhesive and I came out with an Acrylic Christmas Tree Album....
I had the intentions of inking it and such like but when I got it home my acryllic paint was calling to me....so I used a new dish sponge and sponged several layers of the same colour to both sides of the acryllic and then I mixed in some white and sponged over the top again and just before the paint 'set' I gently poured some glitter into the mix.....
This all took about 24 hours to achieve and then the fun began.....
Papers I have used are pinecone press, candy and the stripy piece doesnt have a name.....just a number PP2007
Thanks for looking...:)
