I've been working a bit with glitter & everything glittery. It's a good idea to wipe the page area where the glitter will be going with an antistatic pad. A paintbrush can be used to wipe the excess away & a vacume cleaner comes in handy too! A few ways to apply the glitter are: gemstone glue, spray adhesive, double sided tape, jack paper or glue pad & stamps. It can be mixed with gel medium & sprinkled on embossing powder. For more "bling" try using glitter glue, gems or jewels or pearls. Metallic & glitter finishes come in papers, inks, paints, glimmer mists, ribbons, threads, buttons & patches as well as stickers & flowers & transparencies. If it doesn't have it already then you can add some bling yourself. Plastic, timber, chipboard, embellishments & paper can be made to "pop" with a bit of bling!
Some of these glitter techniques will be used in the above layout that I am teaching later in the year at the Greenbank Scrapbook Shop(see link).
