Full of glitter!


Hi All!
The other day when my mom and I were playing with paste... er... I mean embossing paste- I thought it might be fun to cover the tree with glitter. I imagined a tree just with fresh fallen snow on it. I think this look rocks. I WAS covered with glitter when I was all done though---glitter in the hair, on the face, all over my clothes. Put a light on me and I would have been a human disco ball!

Like I said yesterday, this is a technique from Dreamweavers - click HERE and surf around their site, they have GORGEOUS stencils. Me thinks I need some more!

Here's a close up of the tree showing the glitter. I had to up the contrast so you could see it well! IRL, it is really soft and glittery!


Well... I'm off and running! Have a fab day!

Wow - how cool is that?! Great job!

That is a beautiful card! I love that technique and keep forgetting about it, maybe because of the glitter explosion it causes. The one you posted with the foil and embossing paste was awesome, too, but I didn't find any information about it on their website.

It's really pretty smart to use glitter on your tree.

I have receive the parcel from you ! And you surprise me with the inspirational journal book,the STAMPS and CARDS ! I love all of them. I really meant to. Thank you so much ! I even use one of the stamp this morning.

Julie I just wanted to let you and your readers know that Dreamweavers products are only sold at LSS you won't find them at any big box stores! How cool is that....I have taught classes in many stenciling techniques over the past few years.....you can catch me on my blog and e-mail me if you have any questions. Have you used the Memories Mist with the stencils yet? That is a fun and quick technique. Enjoy
