Monster Sweet Tooth

Welcome to the next Little Miss Muffet Challenge and theme this time is Glitter and Shine! For my shine I covered the lollipops with lacquer with a nice thick coating. The glitter comes in on the angel wing chipboard where I covered it using a pearl color, an Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers, and then I added Sticklets Glitter Glue to give it some details.

This was my first time using the Martha Stewart border punch and thanks to my friend on another group I just "had" to have it. I also used Arabella's fabulous idea of googly eyes on the monster - it cracks me up!

Did you know? The Celtic brooch, more properly called the penannular brooch, and its closely related type, the pseudo-penannular brooch, are types of brooch clothes fasteners, often rather large. Beginning as utilitarian fasteners in the Iron Age and Roman period, they are especially associated with the highly ornate brooches produced in precious metal for the elites of Ireland and Scotland from about 700 to 900, which are popularly known as Celtic brooches or similar terms. They are the most significant objects in high-quality secular metalwork from Early Medieval Celtic art, or Insular art, as art historians prefer to call it. The type continued in simpler forms such as the thistle brooch into the 11th century, during what is often known as the Viking Age in Ireland and Scotland.
