March Variety Swap

The theme for this months swap for Crafting Corner was to decorate 2 pencils, the far right pencil how they both started out. I did struggle with this one to start with but once I got going I don't have a single undecorated pencil anywhere lol
Both pencil's were rubbed down with an emery board, the green one was then sprayed with cosmic shimmer peacock green, and left to dry, I then used green glitter glue to draw stems and leaves, added some small paper flowers and random glitter glue and liquid pearl dots, a coat of watered PVA glue was the final coat.
The far left pencil was painted with a gold acrylic paint, then I used black stayzon to stamp the swirls and a small flower, again I used glitter glue and liquid pearls for highlights with a final coat of glue and finished with knotted black ribbon.
