Want2Scrap is teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Want2Scrap, Graphic 45, and Art Glitter products!
After you check out the projects here, head to the Want2Scrap, Graphic 45, and Art Glitter blogs, to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!
This was such a fabulous combination of products to play around with! First up I have a little glitter tutorial for you. Glitter can be a little tricky to work with, especially if, like me, you hate having it flake off all over the rest of your project. So, here’s the 411 on how I apply mine.
I started with one of the new CHA releases from Want2Scrap. This is the “Forever” Word from the Girlfriends Chipboard Words. First, I applied a nice thick coat of Dye Ink from Clearsnap. This ink takes a little longer to dry, which is what I need for this project.
Then, while it was still wet, I applied a liberal coating of Stamp N’ Bond Adhesive powder.
After I shook off the excess, I got my glitter ready. This Art Institute Glitter is very fine and has a lovely layering of color within the glitter. I used my heat tool set melt the Stamp N’ bond, then poured the glitter right on to the wet, melted adhesive, and tapped it down a little with my fingers.
You can see here what a lovely coat of glitter I got on my chipboard… and I’m happy to report that a week later, there’s still no flaking.
After my glittering was complete, I pulled out my Graphic45 Le’Romantique paper, and created this layout. Yes, it’s 8.5x11. I’m trying that size here and there- I love how much easier it is to store those pages in albums.
It’s a great combination, isn’t it??
Be sure to check the Want2Scrap blog every day this week for more project inspiration! We have a Want2Scrap prize to give away to one lucky commenter! Also, make sure you pop over to see Elise Durenberger today. She has another awesome project to share with you.
