ARE TEAMING UP THE ENTIRE MONTH OF JUNE TO BRING YOU AN AMAZING CREATIVE COLLABORATION MIXING DREAMWEAVER STENCILS AND ART GLITTER. COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE...WE PROMISE IT WILL BE A SPARKLING ONE!
Visit the Art Glitter blog and the Dream It Up! blog for fabulous inspiration from both talented design teams. We are encouraging all of you to play along with the challenge of creating with Dreamweaver Stencils and Art Glitter*, preferably using the Double-Glitter Technique with a wedding theme. Just link your creation to the Mr. Linky on the Dream It Up! blog, or email pics to firstname.lastname@example.org, for an opportunity to win one of four fabulous glitter and stencil prize packages. One winner will be chosen each week. (US and Canada only, please).
Here is my post for today:
I decided to do a triptych for my wedding card, using the Double Glitter technique. I cut and adhered three sections of the Double-Sided Mounting Paper to my long white panel. I taped off the heart portions, covered the back of the Heart Whimsey stencil with a light coating of Coconut soap, brushed with small amount of water to ensure good coverage of soap (thank you, Lynell, for that tip!). The soap prevents the stencil from being glued to the adhesive.
I first applied the blue-green color of the Ultra Fine Art Glitter Pee Wee Wonderland Kit over the leaf and vine sections. Then I used a soft brush to remove excess glitter from the entire stencil (pour back into container!). I removed the tape from the heart portions and applied in the pinky-lavender glitter from the same set. Rub the glitter in thoroughly for good coverage. Because it is ultra fine, it fills in beautifully. Once again, brush off all excess.
Now, turn the panel upside down and pull the panel away from the stencil, keeping the stencil flat. I covered the entire background portions with Art Glitter Ultra Fine Pearl. The pearl finish provides such a beautiful sheen and contrast to the sparkle of the glitter on the stencil design. All I needed to add was a pretty bow and charm to finish this off.
