Challenge 45 - Glittered Embellies

Do you like glitter? There's a good supply of scrapbook items you can purchase with glitter - fabric flowers, brads, and stickers to name a few. Which is all good. But sometimes you want something a little more custom. And there's so many different kinds of glitter out there from coarse to fine in any color you could want.

So, my challenge to you is to use a bit of glitter and make an embellishment. Need some ideas? Add to an existing embellishment. Glitter chipboard. Use glue dots. Use a glue pen. Here's what our team came up with:

Jen's layout:

Jen's not a big fan of glitter because it can be quite messy to work with. Her solution - dunk the adhesive backs of epoxy stickers into glitter then use glue dots to adhere them on her layout.

Deborah's Layouts:
Two different kinds of glitter were used on this layout. The tree was made by tracing over a stamped image with a fine glue pen then covering with Doodlebug glitter. The paper flower was brushed with Glossy Accents and then sprinkled with iridescent flakes I found in the paper-making section.


Glue dots were applied directly to this layout and coated with fine glitter. The same glitter was applied to the button.



And here's the RAK for this challenge. I've got a collection of things from the new Breaking Free line from My Mind's Eye -- plus a bit of Martha Stewart glitter.

Post your creations by Sunday, May 31st to be eligible for the RAK.

I happened to have gotton my first glitter recently. This was a perfect opportunity to use it. I tried with glue dots and glossy accents. I think I like to work with glue dots better :) Here is my page.
