This is a 2 day hop so make sure you come back and comment on both days and follow my blog to be entered to win my blog hop candy!!!
My first project is a little back pack pull for my best friends daughter. She starts kindergarten in September and I thought I would make some thing special to match her new back pack! I drew the bird free hand, so it would match well with her cant see the birds eye really well in these pictures, (its the fuzzy spot ) but the camera does pick up all the glitter!!!  Trust me she is much cuter in person!!!

Here is what I used:
Srinky Dink paper
black Sharpie marker
paint brush
Glamour Dust paint by Deco Art.

Great project! I love shrinky dinks. So I don't understand did you use the Glamour paint to color the image before shrinking or is it something you painted on after? Im not familar with that particular product.
