Flakie Week: Franken Friday, Bar Hopping

Alas it is Friday so we have come to the end of our Flakie week, and it was fun but today I an sticking with our theme and sharing a Franken I made with Nubar 2010 that I call Bar Hopping.. It's by far a total success as a flakie franken but the color and tone that I ended up with makes me so happy so that is way its a total keeper for me.. Here she is in pic spamage..(click pics for larger size/more detail)

 The weather was real crap so I had to take pics in the light box, this one in shade conditions.
 I am so in love with the color this came out, its a jelly/shimmer/cream mix .
 This is two coats but as you can prolly tell it could have used one more. I made the base thin enough so that with each layer you could still see the flakes in the layer under it.
 Close up above you can see the flakes peeping out, its very subtle but just enough to add some fun twinkle of color to the baby blue.
I really wish I could have gotten pics of this in day light, its so lovely outside, soft and interesting.
But again as a Flakie franken not a huge success but im still very taken by it, what do ya think?

Well guys and gals, that's the end of flakie week I you guys enjoyed it..
On a side note it's now only 8 days til my wedding so things are getting hectic, im going to try and stay on top of blogging here but I feel like it'll be mostly NOTD's til after the Wedding.. But Ive got fun stuff planned after the wedding so think good thoughts for me the next 8 days heh Im gonna need um :)
