Painting with Swarovski Crystals

In a recent bout of boredom, I decided to wander off into a deep Google search for Swarovski crystals. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed. In the mail came a few thousand crystals I ordered for my fashion illustrations. I am serious about crystals, so a thousand sounded like a good amount to start off with. This whole weekend I immersed myself in glitter, crystals, and feathers.

I know it's common for creative people to get stuck in a creative rut, so ordering new materials was just the thing I needed. To make matters worse, I was also given an entire book listing every single Swarovski crystal color, size and shape I could order. So, let's just say this crystal experiment is not going to end anytime soon.
