Sparkling Under the Sea


 AND


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 lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com, 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:


For this week, I'm sparkling under the sea! I used the double glitter technique with the Seahorse stencil, using the tip of a straw to carefully place the colors of Art Glitter from my Carnival Pee Wee kit. The background was covered in transparent crystal glitter. When the panel was finished, I went back and added some shading with my Copic markers. Because of their transparent color, they don't detract from the sparkle of this fabulous glitter.

I created a border by hand-embossing the Scallop stencil across the white strip. To highlight the embossing further, I shaded slightly with a Copic BG0000. I punched two EK edger borders, covered them with white glue, and poured a gorgeous covering of Teal and Sand Ultrafine Art Glitter. For more info on the Double-Glitter Technique, Lynell Harlow demonstrates this technique for the Scrapbook Soup episode HERE.

Remember to play along with us. Break out your glitter and stencils and create something sparkly for this month's challenge. Link it to the Dream It Up! blog Mr. Linky HERE, or email pics to lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com. There are still TWO more prize packages available, and you know you want one!
